The Stone Roses

The Stone Roses formed in Manchester in 1984 and disbanded in 1996, leaving one massively successful album, one disastrousalbum of unparalleled scope, and an influence over British music that will likely never fully fade. As icons of the Manchestermusic scene and pioneers of "Madchester", a fusion of 60s jangly guitars and 80s rave dance beats, the Stone Roses were thevoice of a generation with only one album... their debut, at that.

The Stone Roses formed in Manchester in 1984 and disbanded in 1996, leaving one massively successful album, one disastrousalbum of unparalleled scope, and an influence over British music that will likely never fully fade. As icons of the Manchestermusic scene and pioneers of "Madchester", a fusion of 60s jangly guitars and 80s rave dance beats, the Stone Roses were thevoice of a generation with only one album... their debut, at that. Along with other Madchester groups like the HappyMondays, the Inspiral Carpets and the Charlatans UK, they revolutionised British pop music, furthering the effortsof bands like the Smiths in the years before them. Without the Stone Roses, have no doubt, there would be no Oasis, or Suede,or Blur. Their sophomore album, eventually released in 1996 at the height of Britpop (a genre they had no small part in makingpossible), was perhaps both the most widely anticipated and universally disparaged album ever to be released. Still, despite thismassive failure and the relatively unsuccessful nature of the members' solo careers (aside from Mani's stint in PrimalScream), they remain one of the most respected and influential British bands in history, placed alongside only the theBeatles, the Jam, the Smiths and perhaps the Kinks in terms of eternal importance. « hide
