Mike Kinsella returns with his latest Owen release, L'Ami du Peuple, on July 2. In its fourth track, "Coffin Companions," he pays not-so-subtle homage to a highly influential Manchester band. 

"My favorite part of the song is the part that I didn't write," says Kinsella. "I very not so secretly reference 'The Boy With A Thorn in His Side' by The Smiths..."
