(Melody Maker); "Jangling in every sense." (The Observer); "The Stone Roses are blooming in technicolor." (Rolling Stone); "Well worth tracking down." (London Challenger).

In response to the 7000 crowd's chant of "Manchester, la la la", Ian Brown delivers the now famous one-liner, "It's not where you're from, it's where you're at." The event is recorded by Granada TV, but the Roses' management pull the plug on the proposed Great North Show documentary and the footage languishes in the company's vaults. The post-gig party is in an old recording studio on London' Holloway Road. NOVEMBER 21: The Late Show, BBC2. The Stone Roses' first live TV appearance. Forty seconds into 'Made Of Stone', the "limiter switch" automatically cuts the powers as the volume exceeds BBC regulations.

Angry at the label's re-release of their 1987 single 'Sally Cinnamon' - and specifically its accompanying video - they throw blue and white paint over label boss Paul Birch and his girlfriend Olivia Darling. Ian Brown puts a brick through Birch's 25000 pound Mercedes. "The video was insulting", Brown said at the time. "Blokes selling fruit, a few pigeons, some black woman holding a baby, a picture of me on the front of The Face, a few people in flares... So we went and painted him." JANUARY 31: The band and Steve Adge are arrested. Ian Brown, John Squire and Reni are arrested in their hotel near the studio. Mani and Steve walk into Monmouth police station to give themselves up. All are taken to Wolverhampton. Steve Adge is released without charge. FEBRUARY 1: The Stone Roses are released on bail. FEBRUARY 7: The Stone Roses serve a writ on Revolver to try to stop the video for 'Sally Cinnamon' being shown. FEBRUARY 12: The 'Sally Cinnamon' hearing is adjourned for three weeks.

MAY 26: At a pre Spike Island press conference in Manchester's Piccadilly Hotel, the band successfully bait press from all around the world. Local journalist based in US, Frank Owen says they're taking the piss and is attacked by a drunken fan. "What will you be doing in five years?" asks the Daily Star. "What a stupid question" retorts Ian Brown. MAY 27: Spike Island. 28000 attend the all day concert on an island in the Mersey Estuary. The Stone Roses are the only band to play - the rest of the music is provided by DJs Frankie Knuckles, Gary Clail, Dave Haslam and Dave Booth. The band perform 17 songs in 75 minutes, ending with a riotous 'I Am The Resurrection'. The weather is gloriously sunny and the vibe is generally excellent. But the queue for alcohol is two hours long and cigarettes are unavailable. Backstage, journalists are appalled to learn that the only free drink on hand is Coca-Cola. JUNE 2: Glasgow Green. 8000 people cram into a tent to witness The Stone Roses' last live appearance. After the gig, the band return to the Sub Club, where they party until 7.30am. Report in the NME that the release of the Roses' next single, 'One Love', is to be delayed, pending new cover art, because a swastika could be detected in John Squire's original painting. "Anyone who knows us knows we're not Nazis," explains Ian Brown in a Select interview, "but if some kid in Barcelona goes into a bar with a t-shirt on - Stone Roses, looking a bit like a swastika - ends up gettng stabbed. How would we feel then?" JUNE 3: Appearance at Feria De Nimes Festival in Spain cancelled because of it's bull-fighting connections. "We don't want a ritual slaughter as a support act," says a spokesman. JUNE 18: Official release of 'One Love' is delayed. The official line is that the cover art is not yet ready, although cynics believe that the band are prolonging the suspense to guarantee chart entry at number one.

JULY 14: Sounds reports that rumours of the band trying to set up a gig in Beirut are true, but according to a spokesman, "logistically improbable." 'One Love' peaks at number 4. JULY 28: NME carries a picture of Mani with his new short haircut. Reni turns upto the opening of Central Station Design's exhibition in Manchester Art Gallery wearing a sou'wester and wading boots. Reports that he was armed with a chainsaw are never confirmed. AUGUST 22: The music press reports that Stone Roses have "left" their contract with Silvertone - poached by an as yet unnamed company.

Squid. 1991 FEBRUARY 10: The Rumbelows League Cup semi-final first leg held played at Old Trafford. As fiesty carrot-haired Leeds United midfielder Gordon Strachan (formerly of Manchester United) goes flying ove some advertising hoardings, a disillusioned Mancunian fan in the crowd gobs at him. It is Mani - making an unexpected live TV comeback. FEBRUARY 20: Ian Brown's 20th birthday.

MARCH 4-6: Silvertone try to have the 1988 contract with the band declared enforceable, and seek an injunction to stop the group recording for any other company. The interim injunction stays in place pending the outcome of the case. MARCH 18-22: The band appear in the Law Courts in The Strand, London, to hear the testimony of Geoffrey Howard, their solicitor at the time of signing the Silvertone deal.

He changed it while working at Vidal Sassoon's in the '60s. APRIL 10: Reni's 27th birthday.
