Modest Mouse to tour sans-Johnny Marr

    Johnny Marr is not going to be joining Modest Mouse when the band goes on their recently announced tour this spring, opting instead to work with the Cribs on their new album. Former Grandaddy guitarist Jim Fairchild will fill in for Marr, who presumably hasn’t quit Modest Mouse, but has other commitments (but seriously, the Cribs???).
