Smiths Reunion At Coachella?

A guy in the biz whom I trust told me last night about the effort to reunite The Smiths to play Coachella this year...I was pretty skeptical, especially having recently read Spin editor Marc Spitz's novel "How Soon Is Never", a fictional account of a rock writer's efforts to put the Salford Lads back together.

However, a conversation with a PR pal who works for one of Coachella's sponsors confirmed that he'd heard the same thing. A quick check of some of the better blogs turned up a story of Productshop NYC all but confirming the story.

Since festival tickets go on sale this week, perhaps its all a bit of coordinated rumor mongering to generate buzz, but wouldn't it be cool if true?
