The Smiths will reform "when the British government steps down," says Johnny Marr

After accepting an NME award for the Smiths' massive boxset issued last year, guitarist Johnny Marr commented on what it would take to get the iconic band back together. Turns out it's a lot:

“We won't be reforming this week. Maybe if the government stepped down. If this government stepped down, I'll reform the band. How's that? That's a fair trade, isn't it? I think the country would be better off, don't you? I'll do it if the coalition steps down.”

The Smiths were originally together from 1982-1987. Fronted by Morrissey, they went on to influence countless bands in the worlds of pop, rock and alternative music.
