The Cribs have somewhat improved their haircuts and got back to being a three-piece after a short stint with Johnny Marr in the band. They also seem to have discovered Nirvana recently. So there. Dig it.
The Cribs are playing Riot Fest at 6:20 PM on Friday, September 15.
This was a sold out 1200-capacity crowd in the basement venue at Newcastle University. The crowd featured a mix of ages thanks to the new (older) fans of The Cribs that have come onboard since Johnny Marr joined.
In a recent interview with Evening News 24, Johnny Marr admitted that he really likes the music he’s made over the years.
“I really loved the Modest Mouse album. I like a lot of Smiths records. I like Dusk by The The. I like some of the Electronic singles. It’s all part of the same life to. If I owned a jukebox, which I don’t, I could probably fill it with 45s out there that I’ve played on and enjoy.”
Here are the five singles featuring his own work he said he would put in that jukebox.
