The Stone Roses: “Made of Stone” (1989)

From the album that kickstarted the “Madchester” Britpop period of the 1990’s and helped The Stone Roses win four British NME awards in 1989: Band of the Year, Best New Band, Album of the Year, and Single of the Year. But when they tried to sign to a major label afterwards and their label, Silvertone, would not release them, legal battles delayed their second album’s release and prevented the band from consolidating its success.

Stone Roses were England’s “It” band for a brief time, but never made much of a mark in America. Their sound seems to owe a lot to 60’s garage rock.
