Posted January 12, 2012 by Kevin

Being a fan of both The Smiths and New Order, I would consider it only natural to be a fan of Electronic as well. Unrightfully, Johnny Marr was often overshadowed by Morrissey’s vibrant presence, while Bernard Sumner was in the background of the Ian Curtis saga. Both were vital elements to two of the biggest influential bands […]
