Anybody who's obsessed with the Madchester movement and the 1980's post-punk world slithering its way to the corporate rock alternative-land of the 90's will remember the Stone Roses as one of the bands that mattered. On the cusp of the scene and breaking up prematurely when they were at the apex of their popularity, the Stone Roses embodied everything done right to preserve band integrity. That includes the Stone Roses Reunion that the band announced almost a month ago in a press conference (watch it in full here).
If that announcement floored you, then dig this -- The Stone Roses are headlining not one, not two, but three major festivals next year. The Benicassim Festival, Fuji Rock Festival and T In The Park. You may now stampede your way over to buy tickets!
