Heart On The Staves
Mona, who runs the Exile On Moan Street blog, put this up earlier. I thought I'd repost it here in case anyone who might be interested missed it. The mid-80s pre- Mani incarnation of The Stone Roses ripping through their set at a warehouse party in July 1985. It includes a load of punky energy, a riffier version of I Wanna Be Adored, Sally Cinnamon B-side Here It Comes and debut single So Young, a sweaty Reni pounding the drums, Ian's early vocal style, original bassist Pete Garner and Andy Couzens on second guitar. The fluid, funky, chiming guitars of the debut album are four years/light years away. An interesting period piece if nothing else. Watch here.
