The Stone Roses: Made of Stone

Preview by Jack Foley

IN 2012 a resurrection no one thought possible took place when legendary band The Stone Rorses reformed after 16 years.

With unprecedented access to previously unseen archive footage, Shane Meadows presents, The Stone Roses: Made of Stone, a revealing documentary about the life of one of the most revered and influential bands in British music history.

The DVD and Blu-ray Collector’s Edition and Limited Edition Steelbook are packed with over two hours of exclusive extras, including never-before-seen highlights and fan footage from Spike Island ’90, and behind the scenes footage from Warrington Parr Hall.

Both editions also include many live performances featuring Shoot You Down at Warrington Parr Hall, She Bangs The Drums from the Fuji Rock Festival, and reunion rehearsals for Don’t Stop and I Wanna Be Adored.

Acclaimed film maker and self-proclaimed The Stone Roses super fan Shane Meadows presents a touching documentary by bringing his unique directorial style, humour and emotional depth to the film by capturing the band at work and in their everyday lives as they rehearsed for their much-anticipated reunion, which culminated in three triumphant homecoming gigs at Manchester’s Heaton Park in front of 220,000 adoring fans.

Vocalist Ian Brown, guitarist John Squire, bassist Gary ‘Mani’ Mounfield and drummer Alan ‘Reni’ Wren make up the legendary four piece who formed in Manchester in 1986.

In October 2011, the impossible happened, the band called a press conference and announced they had reunited. This DVD is the chance to be part of one of the biggest comebacks Britain has ever seen, all captured on camera by director Shane Meadows and available to own this autumn.

Incorporating never-before-seen material spanning the band’s musical history, the personal experiences of many of those touched by the band and their music, and unparalleled access to the record-breaking sell-out concerts which took place in summer 2012, The Stone Roses: Made of Stone is the last chance to revisit the astounding comeback of the definitive band of the past 25 years.

Relive 25 years of greatness with The Stone Roses: Made of Stone, available to own on single-disc DVD, 2 Disc Collector’s Blu-ray & DVD Edition, and Limited Edition Steelbook from October 21, 2013.
