Smiths too serious for Harry Hill

According to The Sun, Johnny Marr has blocked Harry Hill from releasing a medley of Smiths songs on his forthcoming comedy album. The tabloid reports that Hill had recorded excerpts of a number of the band’s hits in a George Formby style.

The blow comes after Island Records reportedly refused to allow Hill to call his album either ‘Sgt Pepper’s Volume 2’ or ‘Bright Side Of The Moon’.

A source of some sort said: “He’s already on his third choice of album title and now Johnny’s had a sense of humour bypass”.
