Johnny Marr Rejoins The Cribs For Gig

Ex-The Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr played with The Cribs onstage in Manchester last night's gig at the Manchester Academy. Marr, who officially dropped from the Wakefield band in 2011 after a four-year stint, made the appeared and played We Share The Same Skies and We Were Aborted, both from 2009's Ignore The Ignorant, the debut album by the band and the only to feature Marr.

Earlier in the day, Marr had tweeted wishing welll to the band:

"Love and best to all The Cribs fans in my hometown tonight. Manchester Loves The Fellas. Johnny."

Marr made a departure from the band last April but still remains on good terms. Frontman Ryan Jarman also stated whilst they had really enjoyed working with the legendary guitarist, The Cribs were after all "meant to be a 3-piece":

"I liked the last record ['Ignore The Ignorant'] and it was a progression, but there was something lost in translation. Something was lost from the three-piece that was indefinable. But that's what's back."

The Cribs have just recently released their second LP, In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull and are set to close their UK tour at Eastbourne's Winter Gardens tonight (May 13th), but will also play an intimate hometown show at Wakefield's Theatre Royal on May 16th.
