“It’s the bomb that will bring us together”
“Ask” is a deeply weird song. On one level, it’s straight-ahead Johnny Marr (plus Craig Gannon) jingle-jangle-jingle, but on the other hand, there’s a lot of crazy stuff going on, and like “Shakespeares Sister,” it stands as a single that wasn’t quite as great as it should have been.
And that’s probably on Morrissey and Steve Lillywhite.
