Linkage: Stone Roses, Johnny Marr, Modern English’s Robbie Grey, Mission of Burma

A collection of some interesting links we recently stumbled across:

The Stone Roses to release new studio album in 2013? It’s not entirely surprising since the Roses already had announced a new 2-album record deal, but the British music mag rehashes a tabloid report that says the band is prepping its third studio album for release next year — and may play a “secret” Olympics-related gig, presumably in London.

Johnny Marr, Parts 1-3 Marie Violette shares a sprawling, three-part interview with the former Smiths guitarist in which he discusses his childhood, growing up in Manchester, his career and his ultimate legacy, of which he says: “I want to be remembered for playing guitar pop.” [Ask Me]

Robbie Grey, Modern English: “Rock Talk” Podcast Audio Interview Jason DeBord checks in with the Modern English founder for an audio interview about the reunion of the group’s original lineup, its upcoming new album, its tours of the U.S. and the U.K. and, of course, the band’s genre-defining song “I Melt With You.” [Rock Subculture]

Mission of Burma Reflect on Their Second Round of Success Jesse Jarnow talks to bassist Clint Conley and guitarist Roger Miller about the band’s new album Unsound and its unlikely comeback (“The gene was switched back on,” Conley says), plus the use of improvisation in recording the new songs. [Rolling Stone]
