The Stone Roses Announce Reunion

Despite only releasing one album that anyone cares about, The Stone Roses were one of the most important British bands of the late 1980s. With their 1989 self-titled debut, the group paved the way for the brit-pop movement in the subsequent decade, pairing power pop melodies and jangly guitars with the psychedelic sounds of the Madchester club scene. The group disbanded in 1996 after a dud sophomore album, but according to The Daily Mail, the legendary band has announced that they are reuniting for two shows in their hometown next summer. It is unclear whether they will expand the tour beyond Manchester, but the mere prospect of The Stone Roses reuniting is sure to excite a lot of fans. 

UPDATE: According to Pitchfork, the band will embark on a world tour in 2012 following the Manchester shows on July 29th and 30th.

Stream their 1989 hit “Waterfall” below, from The Stone Roses.
