Spike Island – such a great name. As soon as the Stone Roses’ 1990 bank holiday show was announced, everyone agreed that it already sounded legendary. In reality, Spike Island was an isolated field near Widnes, edged by stubby trees, pylons and a lurid green creek – as an island it was certainly more Canvey than Crete. It was also within spitting distance of the ICI chemical works, which would give everyone a free plastic wig by the time the Stone Roses had left the stage and flown off in their helicopter. I’d assumed they were a goth band, but in a college canteen, in front of 30 to 40 people, the Roses played their as-yet unreleased album and I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. It was the best show I’d ever seen and I said so, in print; luckily for me, the group were huge within a matter of months. The Stone Roses at Spike Island and Glasgow Green - in pictures.
