The Cribs take new direction
The Cribs' new album will be keyboard-driven.
The group are currently in the studio working on the follow-up LP to 2009's 'Ignore the Ignorant' and guitarist Johnny Marr is impressed by how hard frontman Ryan Jarman is pushing himself to create a new direction for the band.
Johnny said: "The new stuff, particularly what Ryan is coming up with, is very different.
"Ryan's been playing some keyboards and he's got very inspired by it. It still sounds like that band and his lyrics are always very interesting, I'm excited by it.
"Ryan is very inspired which is fantastic to see and we've all got a strong work ethic. We all take the business of being in The Cribs very seriously."
Johnny - who has previously played with bands including The Smiths, Modest Mouse and The Healers - picked up the Inspiration Award at last week's Ivor Novello awards in recognition of his musicianship, and revealed he planned to celebrate the accolade with a new guitar.
He joked to BANG Showbiz: "I'm going to go and meet up with the guy who builds my guitars for about three hours this afternoon, that's the sort of thing that I do - that's how you get one of these awards!"Posted on 24 May 2010 07:00 to category : Band / Celebrity News
