Johnny Marr joined The The after leaving The Smiths, and this was the lead single from the second album he did with them, Dusk, released in 1992. While many people say Johnny's never matched the standards he set in The Smiths (and who else has?), this is one of his post-Smiths gems. Opening with Johnny's raspy harmonica and then a swampy, dirty guitar track, coupled with Matt Johnson's husky vocals and heavy drums. There's a great breakdown with the harmonica and guitar riff, before the meaty, swampy groove comes back. A must for your Johnny Marr compilation cd.
