In May 1982 Marr decided that he wanted to establish a new band, and subsequently turned up on the doorstep of Morrissey’s house – 384 Kings Road, Stretford– accompanied by mutual friend Steve Pomfret, to ask Morrissey if he was interested in founding a band with himself and Pomfret. A fan of the New York Dolls, Marr had been impressed that Morrissey had authored a book on the band, and was inspired to turn up on his doorstep following the example of Jerry Leiber, who had formed his working partnership with Mike Stoller after turning up at the latter’s door.
According to Morrissey: “We got on absolutely famously. We were very similar in drive. ” Conversing, the two found that they were fans of many of the same bands. The next day, Morrissey phoned Marr to confirm that he would be interested in forming a band with him.
