I was once lost, now I have been found, I just discovered

Post by aisling » Fri Jun 05, 2009 3:24 am

......The stone roses and the happy mondays.
:oops: :oops: :oops: I was a metal head back in their prime in the late 80's, and then went the grunge route.....I can't believe I let such great talent slip by me.

Any recommendations for tracks or albums by these bands.

The Stone Roses didn't release many albums (2 albums), I think their most popular track was "Fools Gold" - drumming not often heard outside of soul and funk genres at the time of its release (check out Reni - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Wren ). At any rate, The first album was the better of the two IMO - Shoot You Down was another track with some pretty nice drums, although I pretty much think the whole album was great (This Is The One, Elizabeth my dear, were also faves). They remind me of a younger version of The Doves.

Love Spreads was the only hit I remember from the second album...I listened to Second Coming a few times, but never got into it.

omfg. Stone Rose's first and eponymous album is a f-ng classic!! definitely without a doubt in my top 5 all time albums. their second album is better than most but not quite as good as their first. just go buy them.

Happy Mondays - great band, pills bills and bellyaches is another classic.



did you miss the entire late 80s Manchester scene altogether? amazing music.

big fan of the Roses here, but the main drums on Fools gold is a sample loop of JBs "Funky Drummer", its not something Wren came up with!

Sadly I did miss it all together.......
I came from speed/thrash metal into nyc hardcore.......Did not mellow out until discovering Janes and faith....then soundgarden, alice and chains, monster magnet and the butthole surfers had me pretty much captive until I rediscovered James brown and funk/acid jazz, some hip hop then broke free with the first chemical bros., loop guru, transglobal underground, the crystal method and other mid 90's electronica.....

So yes I missed it......still did enough drugs to have qualified, but missed it.

FYI metal's prime was definitely not the 80's. Your all old fucking geezers.

can we have a heated 20 page thread debating which era of metal was the "prime" one and/or whats the best sub genre?

the pinnacle of the Baggy/shoegazing scene for me was Ride.

long feedback psychadelic freakouts interspersed with gorgeous 60s style pop melodies. while we are talking about the whole scene lets also mention:

My bloody Valentine
Early Blur
Happy Mondays

Sorry, this is the Manchester page. You'll have to visit the Birmingham page for the metal debate.
My cousin turned me off of the Manchester scene. She was so obsessed that she and her best friend moved to Manchester for a year. They discovered rain and soot, and then returned to the states, sans band boy and sans money.

I always thought bullet for my valentine was an emo band for pre-bleeder females.
