The 1990s nostalgia train continues. While everyone who has snapped up tickets for Pavement, The Pixies, Blur, Soundgarden, The Jesus Lizard and countless others would have scoffed at such a proposition during their college years, there is some decent money to be had in coming back and playing for your fans who are now Dads with bigger wallets and more disposable cash to spend on reliving their late teens/early twenties. As long as it's over by 11 PM. (And don't let us get started on the trend of bands doing concerts of centered around playing albums front to back). Anyway, long story short, The Stone Roses are now back together, eager to make some retirement coin by embarking on a world tour starting next summer and recording a new album that will probably suck balls.

The 1990s nostalgia train continues.

Anyway, long story short, The Stone Roses are now back together, eager to make some retirement coin by embarking on a world tour starting next summer and recording a new album that will probably suck balls.

Anyway, those concerts and album aren't the only these guys will try and get your cash as the Independent reports they are preparing some kind of movie and they've enlisted "This Is England" helmer Shane Meadows to direct it. Details are still being worked out, but Meadows was at the band's press conference last week where they announced their return, though an official thumbs up from The Stone Roses isn't expected for a few weeks yet. Granted, a documentary -- which we presume it will be -- about these guys sounds far more interesting than actually going to see them play again, but that's just us.

But even so, we'd rather Meadows do any of his currently developing projects which include the horror flick “Beware the Devil,” the boxing biopic “King of the Gypsies” and the movie about cyclist Tom Simpson. But we guess this gig beats making orange juice commercials.
