Heaton Park DVD petition?

Having sorted tickets and accommodation for next year’s run, I naturally had to feed my anticipation with that Fools Gold clip from Made of Stone. Only “I Wanna Be Adored” from the first night can top what I felt, but I can’t shake that nagging feeling that I may never get to see the rest of what was filmed at Heaton Park.

I know it would probably take a lot of money to process the remaining footage with as much love and care as those 13 minutes, but I reckon they’d have a bestseller on their hands if they released a Heaton Park DVD / Bluray / Live album.

Being that this is not a novel idea, I’m looking to find out if anyone’s tried this before. If not, I’d love to start something that would tell the band, their management and Shane Meadows / Warp Films that we want to see it all.

So I’d propose to also take the money factor out of the equation by promoting a pledgemusic.com effort where contributors upwards of a certain level would get a copy of at least the best of what was filmed.

Either way, see you in June!

The Stone Roses, Finsbury Park, review (Telegraph)

Ian Brown’s face had a few more lines than in his youth but his swagger can still make Liam Gallagher seem like a man crippled with self-doubt.

via The Stone Roses, Finsbury Park, review – Telegraph.

The concert was a great opportunity to rekindle memories of the historic Heaton Park gigs last year. The only truly new thing this year may have been the setlist, but with the Stone Roses, that is secondary, as just being there is an event every time.

Being that so much was similar to last year (does SJM always use the same onsite construction approach?), it’s hard to highlight much for me, but suffice to say that 2013 could be their year if new singles start coming out.
