Stone Roses Day on Torr’s site

Torr has graciously reposted up some early/rare Stone Roses demos over on his blog. Visit him to check out these tracks from one of Manchester’s finest exports :

Acoustic, 1986
“She Bangs The Drums”
Bredbury, Manchester, 1986
“The Hardest Thing In The World”
Chorlton, Manchester, 12th December 1986
“Elephant Stone”
“The Sun Still Shines”
“Going Down”
“Sugar Spun Sister”
Manchester, Early 1988
“Shoot You Down”
Suite-16 Studios, Manchester, May 1988
“She Bangs The Drums”
“Made Of Stone”
“This Is The One”
Battery Studios, London, January 1989
“Elizabeth My Dear”

So, that’s what they were doing in 1986, and it doesn’t sound half bad. In 1986, I was an elf in a Christmas play called “Shaping Up Santa,” with a ROCKING theme song that I can still sing for you. Also, I was in “50 Nifty United States” where I learned to sing the states in alphabetical order. It comes in handy.

  • I saw your post on The Stone Roses and figured I had to tell you this

    I have put up a website dedicated to reunite The Stone Roses.

    I have put aside 2000€ to the Stone Roses Therapy Fund if they would want professional help to get Ian Brown and John Squire to start talking to each other.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
