The Cribs

This English pub-punk outfit made three records as a band of brothers, but for their latest, Ignore the Ignorant, the Cribs invited Johnny Marr of the Smiths to join up—never a bad idea, provided the guy says yes. Marr's guitar expands the band's sound on Ignorant, which comes across as slightly less bitter than the Cribs' earlier stuff. Working with your idol, one supposes, will do that. With Detroit's once-buzzy Von Bondies.
