iPod Shuffle - Made Of Stone

Made of Stone - "The Stone Roses" - Play this track here.

 

?Whats this iPod Shuffle set all about? Read about it here

 

Todays first track up on my Ipod shuffle was this one. Its is the first in my new set that hopefully will marry up some of my listening habits with some of my photographic ones!

I dont have chance to 'shuffle' every day, so unfortunately it wont be one a day, but do keep up if you can!

 

Salford Northern Soul club night DJ Ian Brown and animator John Squire were the hub of this band. A bit of a soundtrack to my own Madchester days back in the late 1980's. Blimey I must have spent a fortune in Aflecks Palace on dodgy Harris Tweed Jackets (check the Orb) and silk ties.

 

The brilliant first seminal album and the wrangling later with the Silvertone label is legendary. The Second Coming was good, but those four years delay took their toll. Ian Brown, now into his 10th solo album has gone on to better things including the "Q Awards Legend Award" in 2007.

 

His 2001 track 'Fear' is one of my favourites. Apparently inspired by Malcolm X and his preaching of 'control through language', each line contains an acronym from the word "fear". EG 'Fallen empires are ruling'. Grab a listen here.

Plenty of stones here, old ones, gravestones of the great and the good.

 

St Mary's churchyard, Lymm Village, Cheshire UK. The church is a Grade II listed building overlooking Lymm Dam. The church is constructed buff sandstone and the graveyard contains several Stone Roses.
