The Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr talks to Krishnan Guru-Murthy from London's ICA on the release of his new album Call the Comets. A political musician from his early days of gigging at Glastonbury, he now talks of disagreeing with Smiths frontman Morrissey over his far-right leanings, how the terrorist attack in Manchester jolted his creativity and why he thinks politicians are more desperate for fame than anyone else.

Recorded: 14 June 2018.

Producer: Sarah Gough.

Production support: Amy Gardner, Max Velody.
