I'd hope that people would realise that one is a Drama set with Spike Island as a backdrop using actors and period cozzies to recreate a moment (i assume, not actually seen it) and That the other is a documentary about the Stone Roses, Their Fans, Their Past, Their Comeback etc and that they're probably as different as Snooker and CageFighting.
They have so little in common that I can't see how anyone would feel like they had to pick one over the other. I would hope that we both help rather than hinder each other but I'm no expert on Distribution etc. If it came down to being like when the two Robin Hood Films came out together back in the day, I would much rather have the 'Prince of Theives' takings than that one with bloke with the porno Tash's but I doubt either of us are expecting to gross half a Bill!
I personally can not see any comparison between the films. Your film has the full story of the greatest band the world has ever seen! I would personally be happy to spend a whole week watching the footage you have got Shane plus the archive stuff, PM me if this is possible, i'm a local Nottinghamshire lad, i'm up for a whole day back at yours if it so be!
One question Shane: Archive footage? What stuff did you see and what is included in the film? Spike Island? London ICA footage? Glasgow Green? John Squires Second Coming Years footage?
Like most things that are attributed to me, I have very little or nothing to do with it. I think there is a nicer picture of the official 'Drinks List' that Dean Rogers took coming in the NME piece tomorrow. Though I do think that one is authentic, it isn't the final edition which had all names on one page (I think) and my corrected sugar requirements!
Haven't posted yet because would just be repeating myself, but just so, so. so looking forward to seeing this...I'm guessing it'll be showing somewhere in or around Nott'm, but if not I am gonna go all out for one of those coveted Manchester tickets

You'd be nuts not to try to get to that Manc showing hey. Very excited about this film down in sunny Melbourne Shane. Great poster for the film i thought, totally highlighted the sheer warmth and love from the fans - thanks for sharing that Dave.
Saw em here last month as it goes and it was truly the greatest night of my life. An unbeatable gig. Saw em in 95 and thought that was amazing (even without Reni) but this was something far different in many ways.
Will hunt that NME down here hopefully.
Warm regards to you all on the forum! Apologies for not posting in years SSFS
