Re: The Stone Roses 2018 Events and News Thread.

The silence!!!!! What is going on? It's not long till March and we've had no word of anything, no Ian solo album, nothing from Mani or John, NOTHING. Now, that might be a good thing, it might means there's stuff going on in the background. If Ian was making a solo album, surely someone would've spot...

Re: Second Coming--what if "Straight To The Man" and "Good Times" had been b-sides?

For me, it would be (and I've changed the running order a bit): 1. Breaking Into Heaven 2. Ten Storey Love Song 3. Daybreak 4. Your Star Will Shine 5. Ride On 6. Begging You 7. How Do You Sleep? 8. Tightrope 9. Groove Harder (with vocals) 10. Love Spreads So we get a nice mix of groovy band stuff (B...

You play any old shite when you're setting up for a gig.

Re: Ian Brown Solo

Whatever his approach was, it seemed to work very well and gel completely on Music Of The Spheres. The combination of his vocals, lyrics, the production, and guitar playing made that album very special. If we do get a new IB album, I would expect it will be more of the same, hip hop / R&B / reggae i...

Re: Mani selling a lot of equipment

Dissolving a company that was only formed in 2015 isn't a big deal... didn't they have another one?

Besides, it was a touring company. Maybe they are now in the process of setting up a new one, to handle new recordings as well... :?:

Re: Shane Meadows to Make Sequel To Made Of Stone

The reunion, in terms of being a finite thing, was fine. Good gigs, good press, and a couple of new tunes (opinion is subjective). If the band had said "we're reforming with a view to becoming a working band again; doing gigs, making albums, and going on tour" then it would be different. But they di...

Re: Mani selling a lot of equipment

Second Touring was only incorporated in November 2015 though, so what did they use for the earlier gigs?

Re: Ruined, Tarnished, Status Quo or Enhanced?

They're all equally bad, but the 'first take' of FoB on Youtube is 'OK' mainly because it lacks the terrible tub-thumping drums and Lynne's gloopy production. Had George Martin's ears totally gone in 1995? Bizarre they didn't use him if not. The only good thing that came out of it was that it kille...

Re: Ruined, Tarnished, Status Quo or Enhanced?

The most bizarre thing about 'Free as a Bird' is that none of the surviving Beatles was aware that the song had already been commercially issued -- in 1988 -- on the Imagine: John Lennon soundtrack. They learned this after they themselves recorded and released it (I personally prefer that rough dem...

Re: Ruined, Tarnished, Status Quo or Enhanced?

Ruined: to the mega-obsessive fans. Tarnished: to those fans who wanted great new music but never got any Status quo: literally everybody else in the world, even casual / day to day fans. I'm a fan since 1990 and I would say I fall into this category. Sure, I wanted an album but I'd have been happy ...
