I’d forgotten about this one and found it while wasting time on Youtube recently. 1999’s Electronic album Twisted Tenderness didn’t exactly set the world alight and Sumner and Marr moved onto different and separate things afterwards. Track 2 is a little gem though, a highlight in either man’s back catalogue outside their main bands. Johnny Marr had got back into playing distorted guitar and the whole thing has menace and convincing swagger.


This live version done for Jo Whiley’s Channel 4 music show is even heavier.

  1. I bought a copy of Twisted Tenderness, played it once and felt it a bit of let down. Loaned it to someone to offer a second opinion. Before I knew it we had completely lost contact and he still has my copy. Maybe he felt it was a masteroiece tha I didn’t deserve to own!

  2. apologies for dreadful typing in above comment. It’s late and I’m tired!

  3. Its not a masterpiece but there’s this song and a couple of others.
