- Stone Roses New Psychadelic Pophttp://ichef.bbci.co.uk/images/ic/240x135/p02ch1bj.jpg2012-05-22T23:00:13ZStone Roses biographer and music journalist John Robb has confirmed that Stone Roses have written new material. Robb said: ‘I have bumped into Ian Brown a couple of times and he said they have new songs. And they’ve signed a two album record deal so you’d kind of figure that they do have new stuff. Ian Brown described them to me as psychedelic pop songs. And people I’ve spoken to who have been in the rehearsal room say that the new stuff does sound really good.” Reni also told John Robb, months ago, that he had written new material: "At the press conference I spoke to Reni who said he had new songs but he wasn’t sure if they’d make it onto the album. When Ian and John first met for the first time after the funeral [Mani’s mother’s funeral where the band’s reunion is rumoured to have started] they… started writing songs and those songs were given to Reni and that is what persuaded Reni that he wanted to go back with the Stone Roses because the new songs sounded so good.” John Robb spoke to 6 Music’s Elizabeth Alker.http://www.bbc.co.uk/music/artists/b5fa29f1-6c22-4321-a488-b5f363b06b06?clipfocus=p00t01nkSelected ClipSelected ClipAudio 1 min

The Stone Roses are an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1983. They were one of the pioneering groups of the Madchester movement that was active during the late 1980s and early 1990s. The band's most successful lineup consists of vocalist Ian Brown, guitarist John Squire, bassist Mani, and drummer Reni.
The band released their debut album, The Stone Roses, in 1989. The album was a breakthrough success for the band and garnered critical acclaim, with many critics regarding it as one of the greatest British albums ever recorded. At this time the group decided to capitalise on their success by signing to a major label. Their current record label, Silvertone, would not let them out of their contract, which led to a long legal battle that culminated with the band signing with Geffen Records in 1991. The Stone Roses then released their second album, Second Coming, which was met with lacklustre reviews in 1994. The group soon disbanded after several lineup changes throughout the supporting tour, which began with Reni first departing, followed by Squire.
