Also, I wanted to add, that seeing Mellowdrone open for Johnny was really something. They are quite an act. I guess there is a former Smith, finally, that knows how to select a good opening act.
"Boomslang" review from Maxim magazine, March 2003

A founding member of The Smiths, a one-hit wonder, and a Beatle's kid walk into the studio. No, this isn't a joke. Marr, whose solid riffs helped Morrissey's whining go down easier, and his band, The Healers (Ringo Starr progeny and Who drummer Zak Starkey and former Kula Shaker bassist Alonza Bevan), have pulled together a strong debut album that at best recalls U2 minus the self-importance ("Down on the Corner") and at worst sounds like the dull hum in your brain ("Your Are the Magic"). The punch line? Boomslang mostly rocks.

NME reports success of "How Soon is Now?" cover 
03:01am 12/02/2003

Tatu - Is that a flower in your back pocket or...?

The runaway success of Russian lesbian pop stars TATU has had two unlikely beneficiaries – MORRISSEY and JOHNNY MARR.

The one-time Smiths singer and guitarist/songwriters have already netted around £200,000 from Tatu’s cover of their 1984 classic ‘How Soon Is Now?’. The track appears on the duo’s two million-selling album ‘200km/H In The Wrong Lane’.

If, as is expected, ‘How Soon Is Now?’ is released as a single to coincide with Tatu’s mooted summer dates, and goes on to sell as many as the Russians’ current Number One ‘All The Things She Said’, Morrissey and Marr could earn another £50,000 from UK sales alone.

The cover has had a mixed response from Smiths fans, with one user of website Morrissey-solo.com describing it as a "crime against humanity."

However, Smiths expert Simon Goddard, author of the book ‘Songs That Saved Your Life’, said : "I think Morrissey’s camp humour would mean that he found it amusing. There was a terrible version of ‘How Soon Is Now?’ a couple of years ago by Snake River Conspiracy and he said it was better than the original."

Tatu’s Julia Volkova told NME that she had never heard of The Smiths before being given the song to sing: "[The producers] just put it on for us and we decided it was worth a try. Frankly speaking, we hadn’t known this group."
