The Stone Roses Revolution

When a certain band appeared in 1989, I had the experience of completely overturning my values ​​and preconceived notions.

What was so great about them has been talked about in many reviews since then, so I won't go into it here, but what surprised me was that they used the same artwork from their earliest albums, which made their sound famous all over the world. He went into the record company that released the song and threw paint on it (pictured above).


Of course, the members were arrested, but it's still hard to forget how this resulted in publicity, and how the band became the only band in the world to keep an eye on.

The way his actions become artistic critiques of society is reminiscent of John Lennon, and the more he gets arrested and beaten, the stronger and bolder he gets, which is similar to other Stones other than Brian Jones. .
But even in 1989, isn't rock music dead, other than a book called ``Norwegian Wood'' that was selling like hotcakes and being talked about a lot by college students at the time? In fact, it seemed like a long time ago.

Neither the Beatles nor the Stones were talked about much among college students, so they listened to them alone. But the Stone Roses played songs that sounded like they were straight out of the 1960s, with beats that had you on the dance floor all night long.

I thought it was okay for things like this to happen, and I felt like the atmosphere had become much better.
From the wind hole they opened, dazzling colors sprayed onto the body.

Since then, I have mainly felt the feeling of the wind at that time in fashion products.

This method was also used in music videos, commercials, and other advertisements to create an impact.

However, as I watched the making-of , I realized that if you use the method of splattering paint, the colors will mix together, resulting in a dark color, and the color will not come out beautifully.

The design was designed so that various expressions of the wind appear in the scattering of droplets and the way the ink splashes. Of course, using the inkjet method.

Ex-Oasis member Liam Gallagher and ex-Roses member John Squire will be releasing albums this year in 2024, so expectations are high.

The hole that the Stone Roses created is so large that it may be difficult for them, but even if the wind turns against them, the vivid feeling of the wind during the season of revolution will still touch your skin. It is engraved.
