Red Lightning

Red Lightning is Morrissey's lead guitarst Alain Whyte's band:

"Whyte has just completed a full length album with producer David Newton (Mighty Lemon Drops, Fonda, The Blood Arm & Blue Aeroplanes) and his band Red Lightning. Having co-written many of the songs on Morrissey's critically acclaimed and commercially successful album, "You Are The Quarry" as well as all the other Morrissey records (bar Kill Uncle), Whyte now turns his focus towards his new band which draws influence from U2, The Clash, The Cult, The Smiths and Morrissey.
On Bass is John DiMambro (aka Johnny Anger) a long time Moz & Smiths fan. John has recorded with Down by Law & Gentleman Jack Grisham of T.S.O.L as well as psychobilly madmen The Rocketz on Double Bass. He has performed live with Pearl Harbour, Jane Wiedlin of The Go Go’s and Agent Orange.
On Drums is the amazing Milo Todesco. Milo has recorded and performed live with Down By Law, Armond Chakmakian of Shadow Fax, Jim Cherry of Strung Out, Pully, Zero Down, and played Timpani with UCLA Choir conductor Roger Wagner."

They're getting set for a tour of the West Coast of the U.S. and have a debut album due out soon.
