Absolute radio listeners can add another gig to their diary.
Really? From The Sun, I can take that with a pinch of salt, until I see it confirmed elsewhere.
but you're better off with your memories anyway. Great records, but try and find a bootleg of one of their live gigs and listen to Mr Brown "singing". It's not pretty.
also since when did the sun start using sentences like "about as easy as trapping mercury"? :D
as a million + thermometers will testify
Still not sure I believe it. It would be great to see them live as long as they stuck mostly to the first album.
Not a confirmation by another source.
doesn't really have the same ring to it.
Squire neither wants nor needs it.
People are always happy to make a comfortable living from their royalties rather than take a big paycheck to play a few gigs.
"Their first album remains one of the best debuts ever..." Hmm....
"Mani, one of the best blokes in music..." - I'll leave that one hanging...
C'mon, be a big hoax, be a big hoax.
Why does it not? What would you say are the best debuts ever?
Part of me really, really doesn't.
The latter part of me is much bigger, because it knows that this really won't be good.
if i could get them to play a gig in my front room then yes
if i'd have to go to some god-awful gig with 60,000 pissed up cunts in flares and fisherman hats then no
It was fucking great.
i saw Squire on his first solo tour at tuts in glasgow
He finished on Waterfall, She Bangs the Drums into the full version of I am the Resurrection
it was fucking great
It will be embarrassing for all concerned. I'm extremely skeptical this will happen anyway, especially a 'full' reunion i.e. with Reni as well.
hasn't it? There was rumour of one about 2 and a half years ago that was meant to be nailed on and it never happened. As long as Squire is still painting, and not playing guitar - it won't happen. Anyway, what happened to Reni? He was in a band about 10 years ago called The Rub, and has never been seen since.
but I can't see this being a good idea. I will probably go to see them though.
cause I really really like the debut as a melodic pop album and nothing more, definitely nowhere near a 'favourite debut album' for me, so it wouldn't really be ruining anything for me to see them.
if they came on stage in front of thousands of mad fer it fans and struck up with a full seven minutes of Breaking Into Heaven segueing into Love Spreads.
It'd be ace.
If their comeback gig was a 'Don't Look Back' type thing where they play that 'debut' album they recorded with Martin Hannett in full.
but it wouldn't beak my heart not to. Shame really, because when i was a teenager, i was so in love with them. They should do Delamere forest or something similar if it is true and certainly not shitty arenas like the MEN. I give the idea 7/10.
Just so that when they die on their ass we can finally put them down in the history books as a totally passable, 6/10 band and burn all those fucking floppy hats.
Then a few years ago I caught myself drunkenly dancing to I Am the Resurrection and thought that maybe I DID like The Stone Roses after all.
Turned out I was right the first time.
i wouldnt have gone to the festival.
this, as a direct result, would mean Beady Eye would clear off.
....I no longer cared.
I'm disgusted that my personal grief has been invaded and hijacked by these nonsensical stories. Two old friends meeting up after 15 years to pay their respects to my mother does not constitute the reformation of The Stone Roses. Please fuck off and leave it alone. It isn't true and isn't happening.
Screw the Sun, anyway, they hated the Roses at the time (had an article about Elizabeth My Dear "pop yobs hurl sick lyrics at Royal Family"...though on the other hand, that's what got me interested in the Roses, so it had some value).
But that time has been and gone. It would be embarrassing for all concerned. Let's have our memories and move on
Pretty disgusting hijacking my ma's funeral don't you think. Yes,it's great that messrs squire and brown kissed and made up,that gladdens my heart,but they were both there to pay respects to a lady they loved and who loved them back. Wasn't conscious of us having played an acoustic gig at the crematorium !!!!. Ho hum, what do you expect from the gutter press. Bag of total fabricated shite, don't believe the hype !!!.
i actually went and reading your review was better than actually being there. well done!
was down front....the whole day was ace. shouldve started with breaking into heaven though
