The Stone Roses
Tom Doyle, Smash Hits, 13 December 1989
★ They're four loveable urchins from Manchester who have just shaken the world of pop to its foundations with their "spacey" funk workout 'Fool's Gold'.
★ They think they're ace! — and they are! — even though they wear flared trousers.
★ They want to play in the grounds of Buckingham Palace (after they've turned it into flats for old folk).
★ "Blimey! Sounds like the new Big Fun!" considers Tom Doyle.
