The Stone Roses – What The World Is Waiting For

1989 sees the 20th anniversary of the eponymous debut release by The Stone Roses, widely regarded as the album that spawned a new era in indie music and launched the Madchester scene of the late 80s and early 90s, allowing other influential bands such as the Charlatans and James to take the world by storm. The Roses were never allowed to realise their full potential, but this track, released as a single following the album, set out their manifesto. Interestingly, the b-side to this song, Fool’s Gold, was the track that made it big, largely due to it’s club-friendly swirling psychedelic guitars and beat.

Love the Stone Roses but I'd say that they pretty much reached their full potential. Their debut is a classic; they just couldn't maintain that momentum.
