Between scoring Antonio Banderas-starring films, TV shows, jamming with the Cribs, and fielding a daily barrage of Smiths reunion questions, Johnny Marr has apparently found time for a one-off art film project. Well, 30 seconds at least. Southbank Centre reports that director Fiona Skinner’s entry in a competition to produce a 30-second video representing artist Ed Ruscha’s “Fifty Years of Painting” exhibition has been declared the victor.
That alone wouldn’t compel us to post, but then there’s this bit: Skinner tapped Smiths legend Johnny Marr to narrate and score the video, which pays homage to Ruscha’s piece “Noise.”
