The Stone Roses Reunite

It will be official in a half an hour or so at a scheduled press conference in London. The British media have been talking about it for the past few days.

Yeah, reunions are not cool, and everybody knows they were godawful live, but I'm still a bit excited about this. Rumours say there could be new material as well... The first album is a classic, with I Am the Resurrection being one of my favourite songs ever made. Turns Into Stone is one of the best non-album/B-side compilations ever, and Second Coming, although uneven and inconsistent in tone, rocks! Woefully under-appreciated.

So if Ian Brown somehow finds his voice (doubtful I know), if Squire, Mani and Reni will be as musically tight as they were at some of the early live shows, this could be good. Or it could be a disaster.

This is fantastic news. Hopefully it eventuates into a world tour and a third album. Ian Brown's solo career is something that is criminally underappreciated, and all the boys have been active in one way or another since the Roses split.

Kind of raises hopes that a Smiths reunion is not too farfetched a possibility, as the Roses have been adamant for years that they would never ever reform, but let's enjoy this moment. The Roses are back!

I assume a tour will be soon to come, and while the chances are slim they'll play here, they have a decent fanbase, so who knows. I would be willing to give them a shot regardless of their reputation.

Peter Hook was interviewed today on BBC radio, stating that he heard from Mani about gigs and new material.

I hope they work their arses off and are great!

I've heard there are two Manchester shows. Hopefully there will be more.

Yep, two shows in Manchester, Heaton Park, June 29th and 30th.

After that a world tour. New songs will be played. Seems good so far.

I'm skeptical that they could come up with anything that resembles their first album, but stranger things have happened.

World tour, eh. I might have to go somewhere to see that. We'll see, could end up sucking hard.

I think this is great news, they're a fantastic band. With these live shows in manchester and a world tour afterwards will be great for the fans, but the fact they've got new material lined up too, means this isn't just some nostalgia trip. Can't wait!

I never would have guessed you liked them.

I'm relatively meh about this, Manchester does enough reminiscing as it is. A good joke I read earlier today with a decent amount of truth to it: 'I don't think anyone ever told the DJs in Manchester that The Stone Roses ever split up in the first place.'

It's hard to find a decent indie club here that doesn't mainly rely on a combination of oasis and the stone roses with the kings of leon in-between.

Kings of Leon, eh? Well that's as Manchester as it gets!

I definitely wouldn't want an album like that. The second one wasn't as good, but barely anything is, so I liked the fact that it was a major detour for them. It would be great if the third album - if it happens - goes in another direction. I'm curious as to how a whole album of songs similar to Fools Gold, Something's Burning and Begging You would sound. They did that mix of dance, funk and rock that defined the Madchester scene so well.

Stone Roses, welcome back. I love Turns into Stone and I agree that it is probably the best b side compilation ever. Pisces Iscariot follows a close second. Somethings BurningSomethings Burning is lovely.

I only discovered Jackson Pollock after being familiar with John Squires paintings. How about that!

I'd argue that that title belongs to Pearl Jam's Lost Dogs. But if Radiohead ever does something similar, they could just top that one. Nevertheless, Turns Into Stone truly is among the best. After all, it does feature what is probably their most known song.

Here's the link to the press conference (there is even a brief discussion about U2 where Reni praises the band):

Pooh, this is exciting news. Must go spin the debut. Maybe today is the day I listen to the sequel ....
