Andy Rourke takes a spin 

Playing everything from The Rolling Stones to Joy Division. Rumour has it he'll also play Smiths songs if asked.

If you trust the words of Morrissey, his old bandmates have been sitting on their collective thumbs over the past decade. In an interview with Uncut a few years ago, Mozzer bristled: "I feel as if I've worked very hard since the demise of The Smiths and the others haven't." Of course, the statement isn't entirely true, as evidenced by the arrival of the band's former bassist Andy Rourke in Halifax next Wednesday. Rourke has made a decent career from his DJ sets after an accidental debut at a friend's Manchester nightclub, and he'll be playing everything from The Rolling Stones to Joy Division. Rumour has it he'll also play Smiths songs if asked. Prepare for the squee-worthy thrill of hearing "There is a Light that Never Goes Out" spun by a gentleman who was actually there.
