buried in the NME website news report of the support acts for The Stone Roses is an interesting little snippet from the man of the people, Bez :
Meanwhile, Happy Mondays' Bez said he had spoken to The Stone Roses' Mani who told him he was " really buzzing" for the shows. He added: "I haven't heard any of their new stuff but I'm sure we will very soon. I wouldn't miss those Heaton Park gigs for the world."
other than the most excellent notion of Bez being in the crowd for at least one of the gigs, the comment about new material is interesting. is Bez just making idle speculation like the rest of us, or has Mani told him something but advised him not to say too much?
the band signed two record deals in late 2011 and mentioned they had been working on some new songs - a release prior to the Heaton Park weekend would surely make sense?
absolutely bangin' if we get some new tunes soon!
be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
