I've had 'Elephant Stone' by The Stone Roses in my head all morning. I like this song quite a lot, but I don't like The Stone Roses much at all.
Well, it doesn't sound much like the Stone Roses. When else were they that jangly? Apart from the mental B-side which is the same song backwards (but isn't called Enots Tnahpele).

The hardest thing in the world and Mersey Paradise, but that's it I think. Probably why those are 3 of their best songs.

That backwards one is one the 12" only, I reckon. It's called 'Full Fathom Five'.

Good call on Mersey Paradise Damian.

And Sam, for someone who claims to dislike the Stone Roses you seem to know an awful lot about them...

Little? I was in high school. How depressing.

Well, I was about to leave secondary school, yeah. But it was twenty years ago. Gulp.
