The guitarist plays in American indie group Modest Mouse as well as The Cribs
Johnny Marr, former guitarist with The Smiths, has quashed rumours that his old band are to reunite.
The legendary 80s group, fronted by Morrissey, were rumoured to be reforming for American festival Coachella.
"The stories circulating about a Smiths reunion are as usual untrue," explained Marr in a statement.
The guitarist is a member of Wakefield band The Cribs and is set to record an album with them in 2009.
"I'm very excited about writing and recording with The Cribs for a new album, to be released next summer," added Marr, "and we're playing shows in February, so going back in time isn't in my plans."
The Smiths split in 1987, just before the release of their fourth album Strangeways, Here We Come, and have so far resisted any offers to reform.
