999. made of stone

The Stone Roses hit like a fresh breeze in 1989 with the only album  of theirs’ the world would ever need. The lyrics may have worked a dark edge but the sound was all cool light, a powerful pop that was also ethereal, expansive, exploding with the sort of complex colours that the decade in question had mostly forgotten even existed.  The future looked good.
