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.
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!

it's actually "Hot Pants"..... close though, that was certainly the time frame where every kid and his grandmother was using the "Funky Drummer" and "Ashley's Roachclip" (think Milli Vanilli) breaks.

edit: they used it in an interesting way - if i remember right, the break was not used in a nice 4/4 time signature, so that added to the funky syncopated feel of the drums/percussion

I love all these bands!! woo!

One band I think that should be mentioned, was late 90s but they were SO GOOD, The Autumns , their album "Angel Pool"... I could listen to that on repeat forever...

The second Coming (Stone Roses) is a vastly underated album IMHO. No it's not as good as the first but it's still great. Defintely a guitarist's album. The guitar on Daybreak blows me away every time.

and a +1 for all the plaudits for Kevin Shields and My Bloody Valentine. Wonderful band.

MTV dealt a death blow by ushering in a musical consciousness likened to cocaine and plastic, spandex and hair spray. Completely artificial and corporately marketed. It was microwave music for the masses.
So true. So true.
I often think about the irony of the first song they played... Buggles - Video Killed the Radio Star.
At least they played music videos then... i guess...

:oops: SO I am reading the cd liner notes on Happy Mondays, pills bills and bellyaches. I noticed that paul oakenfold produced and arranged it. I always though he was more of a DJ. COuld somebody school me on the connection. I guess I'll be googling as well. Interesting 6 degrees of separation though, I would not have know his career intertwined with those guys.

crazyness....I just jot a lesson in music history I never knew.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Oakenfold
I thought he came much later into the industry....I did not know he went back as far as the late 70's.

It was guitarist John Squire who actually discovered the track. He recalled in Q magazine: "We were signing copies of our single, 'She Bangs The Drums,' in a Manchester record shop called Eastern Bloc. The owner said we could pick a couple of albums as a thank you and I picked out a breakbeats album because I liked the cover and I wanted to see what it was all about. That's where I heard the 'Funky Drummer' loop that we built 'Fools Gold' around."
