The Stone Roses have ‘at least three or four’ new tracks recorded according to the writer of a new film set around the legendary band’s 1990 Spike Island gig.
Actor and writer Chris Coghill made the admission to the BBC when asked if he’d heard any new music from the reunited band, and also revealed both Mani and Ian Brown had offered to give him assistance any way they could while he worked on the film which centres around the struggles of an unsigned band from Manchester at the time of The Stone Roses cult success in the late 80s/early 90s.
“Mani and Ian Brown said, ‘Whatever we can do to help’,” he said. “Essentially, it’s my love letter to the Stone Roses and being 16 years old in 1990 in Manchester. There’s a little bit of me in all the boys.”
“I’m mates with Mani and I know Ian a bit, and when we first started talking about it, I emailed them both an outline of what we wanted to do and they said, ‘You have our support, you have our blessing, whatever you need.”Just Published:
