The Return Of The The

Certainly a highlight of the year for many will be the extremely welcome return of Matt Johnson’s The The. Not so much a recluse as one who simply fell out of the public eye, preferring to concentrate on soundtrack work, scoring numerous documentaries, films and art installations, The The released a one-off single last year, a collaboration with Johnny Marr, as part of Record Store Day (‘We Can’t Stop What’s Coming’). The The also recently announced their first live shows for 17 years, and continue to announce further dates including Festival No.6 in Portmeirion.
