MIDWEEK CRISIS? Nobody loves you? Aagh! Come to WEDNESDAY CLUB, we've got the Stone Roses and you will be adored.
The Stone Roses - 'I Wanna be adored' (1989)
You get weekends you remember and you get weekends that fade away forever. 'I wanna be adored' reminds me of a weekend that will be imprinted in my memory banks forever and a fortnight.
Myself and Flycasual were in the U.K for the weekend, I can't remember why we there, but we were staying in the Ibis Hotel at Heathrow. The first thing we did was of course go to Hounslow Highstreet, to the record shop where we bought The Stone Roses' first album and Bummed by The Happy Mondays. At the time the Roses were the hottest ticket in town and we could not wait to hear the album after a string of superb singles. We had a small portable cassette player and when the album started we were disappointed as we thought there was something wrong with the tape, it was so silent and nothing much was happening. Then it started, what an introduction, one of the best of all time. 'I wanna be adored' - great stuff, the album was everything we expected and more.
Napalm Death', but unfortunately we were not allowed in, Flycasual was too young and a little embarrassed as I remember.
There was another two memorable events that took place that weekend. We watched live in the hotel, Nelson Mandela being released from prison, also the startling news, Mike Tyson had been knocked out by Buster Douglas, the impossible had happened. What a weekend.
I have just heard the news that they are to reform. Fools's Gold!
