Johnny Marr Changes Teams Again

The Cribs are no longer only a family affair. The former Smiths' guitarist has joined the three Yorkshire brothers as a full-fledged member in much the same way he became a part of Modest Mouse and The The. Yes, Marr gets around, and in every case he has made the band better. When a legend like Marr calls, you welcome him with open arms. Here's what we know so far: The Cribs' fourth record, the follow-up to the excellent 'Men's Needs, Women's Needs, Whatever', will be called 'Ignore the Ignorant'. The first single, "Cheat on Me", hits the street Aug. 30, and the album follows Sept. 7.

Track List

1. We Were Aborted
2. Cheat on Me
3. We Share the Same Skies
4. City of Bugs
5. Hari Kari
6. Last Year's Snow
7. Emasculate Me
8. Ignore the Ignorant
9. Save Your Secrets
10. Nothing
11. Victim of Mass Production
12. Stick to Yr Guns

And if you haven't heard Marr's work on Neil Finn's 2001 live album '7 Worlds Collide', check it out to prep yourself for the follow-up, '7 Worlds Collide - The Sun Came Out'. Finn, Marr and many other friends, including members of Wilco, appear on the double CD out Aug. 10. Yes, that Marr gets around. Here's a single from The Cribs' last record, and watch Finn and Marr perform Marr's song, 'Down on the Corner'. This was Marr's first single from the Johnny Marr & The Healers debut album.
