Spike Island Trailer

Spike Island

The year: 1990… The location: Spike Island.

Shadowcaster are a four-piece band from Manchester. Or more accurately, they are five lads with guitars and a garage and an ambition to forget school, forget their troubled home lives, forget GCSEs and see their heroes, The Stone Roses, as they play the biggest gig of their career.

As the defining concert of their generation is announced, the band are convinced that all they need is to get tickets, get to the gig, meet Ian Brown, give him their demo tape, and the rest, as the saying goes, will be history.

A simple enough plan, right? But with no tickets and a sold out gig to contend with, the boys embark on a road trip in a “borrowed” florist’s van to Spike Island. Along the way friendships are tested and their futures shaped – together or apart.

Consistently hilarious and heart-warming, Spike Island perfectly captures a defining era in British music history. This is the one…

Spike Island, directed by Mat Whitecross, stars Elliott Tittensor (Shameless), Nico Mirallegro (The Village), Jordan Murphy (My Mad Fat Diary) and Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones.)

It opens in UK cinemas on June 21.
