Johnny Marr – Easy Money (2014)

Scroll down to content


Last year, he released an acclaimed first solo album, The Messenger, which realised his quest to make music that was “vivacious and exuberant and shiny”, something he felt was sadly lacking in the mainstream. Next month sees the release of its successor, Playland, which suggests the same qualities, only more so. The album has been trailed by a single, Easy Money, four minutes of infectious pop lampooning the consumerisation of everything (“Cash for a degree/And that’s money, money”). It’s a worthy successor to such lucre-anthems as the Tamla Motown and Beatles classic Money (That’s What I Want), and Abba’s Money, Money, Money, and is one of the most straightforwardly commercial pieces of music Marr has ever recorded.
