New Poster For Made Of Stone
Poster for Shane Meadows' 'Roses doc

Shane Meadows' love of music is well-known. After all, the man once formed a band, She Talks To Angels, with Paddy Considine, and has spruced up his movies with choice cuts from Toots, The Specials, Calexico, Aphex Twin, among many others. What's perhaps less well-known is his passion for Madchester's finest, The Stone Roses, a relationship that's been cemented with new fan-doc The Stone Roses: Made Of Stone. We're happy to share the film's new poster with you below, you lucky devils.


Framed by the 'Roses long-awaited reunion in 2012 and following them from studio to Heaton Park's emotional homecoming gigs, Meadows' movie will warm the cockles of the bands' legion of fans. While we can't guarantee a cameo appearance from Le Donk, the nostalgia - and tunes - should come thick and fast.

"This film isn’t a history lesson", explains Meadows, "nor is it a two hour concert film. It is a film about defying the odds, sticking it to the man and telling the cynics to shut their pie-holes!"

The Stone Roses: Made Of Stone gets a UK Premiere in Manchester, complete with an appearances from The Stone Roses themselves, on 30 May, before rolling out nationwide on June 5.
