<!--quoteo--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE</div><div class='quotemain'><!--quotec-->"He made a cautious commitment to write and record with us, and then the tighter we got, he was like, ‘okay, let's tour too.' Then he was pretty much a member of the band-- not pretty much. He's a full blown member of the band. It's really fuckin' nice."<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

I can't wait to hear what this sounds like.

Good luck to Johnny. Not too familiar with MM I'm sure they'll be good with Marr wiritng and playing for them.

Maybe we'll see a Modest Mouse & Morrissey Tour. B)

Yikes. I'm very curious to hear what he'll contribute, I'm not a huge MM fan. I tried. I love 'Float On', that's about it. As for Johnny being a full-fledged member. I think he'll end up being more of a session player. But wait, he helped with the songwriting, so I could be wrong. I wonder what happened with the new Healers lineup.

He must like the Northwest climate (close to home!). He played with Pearl Jam at a charity gig in Seattle recently.

I think I might buy this next album, I havn't bought one by them before but have heard some songs and liked them. With Johnny it should be even more interesting.

hmm... I am a fan of ugly cassanova, not so much good news for people who love bad news, but maybe now that jonny is on board I'll like the new MM more.

A note upon his desk
"P.S. Bring Me Home And Have Me!"
Leather elbows on a tweed coat
-Oh!-
Is THAT the best you can do ?
So came his reply :
"But on the desk is where I want you!"
