The Boneflowers

Heard from a guy who works in Vinyl Revival that Liam, Bonehead, John, Mani and Zak Starkey have formed a new band called The Boneflowers. Apparently they have eight or nine tracks demoed, some of which were written during when the Roses were together and some of which are Liam compositions. Plan is to release an album and tour next year once Liam’s solo stuff has settled down. They’ve asked Mark Ronson to produce the album as they want a bit of a contemporary pop feel to the tunes. They will also I’m told play a few Roses and Oasis classics at the shows.

Vinyl Urinal - that's the best thing I've ever seen on this forum.

How to use this form:

I heard from a guy who [something that is only slightly relevant to the Stone Roses] that John, Mani and [a few random other musicians] have formed a band called [slight pun on the Roses name]

Example:
I heard from a guy who does a lot of cocaine, and I do mean a lot, that John, Mani, Slash, Jason Bonham and Lenny Kravitz have formed a new band called Deflowered.

Yeah, was smoking a spliff of spice at some charity do for celebrity poseurs and the guy who was drooling on the floor next to me said he works for SJM and had heard that Ian Mani James Lavelle and Kendrick Lamar had started a group called The Concrete Wallflowers.

Expect a single called frrrngggaaadsppht. At least, I think that's what I thought he said.

I can confirm Tony’s post and can actually expand on it. The album will be out next April, it’s provisionally titled “This, That And The Other”.

Tracks include “Mantis”, “English Electric Lightning”, “Mr Shy Talk”, “This That And The Other” (Liam tune), “Be Happy That it Happened”, “Hammer & Tongs” (Liam tune), “Sucking Lemons Again”, a re-vamped version of “Heart On The Staves”, “Glorious” and “Big James” (Liam tune)

Interesting to see “Mantis” make the cut, as I know or a fact Ian has done a version for his solo record, the version that features me on keyboards.

This song will be the Four Horsemen/Mechanix of the IB/JS bands with each taking a shot at it.

"Wake Up The World" was written solely by Brown, I understand that will be on his solo record.

Tony, a guy on twitter has posted what he says is the album artwork for the debut LP- can you check and see if this is legit?

Was shown that a while back by Zak Starkey. Interesting this guy has gotten a hold of it, only a few folk had seen it.

Anyone else feel relieved?

September 18 2017, 10:30 AM 

I've heard there's already disharmony in The Boneflowers camp. My wife is friends with Cressa's fishmonger and, as well as telling her about how skate genitals look very similar to human genitals, he also told her that there was an incident between Cressa and Zak Starkey involving Pliers. Not the tool - pliers - but the vibes man - Pliers - who used to perform with Chaka Demus. Starkey wanted Pliers to replace Cressa so the band could infuse a new track - "The Peach and Giant James" - with more of a Reggae/Dancehall sound. If this is the end of The Boneflowers, I, for one, will be relieved it's all over.

Over before it started

I'm absolutely sick of this. Everywhere I read online there seems to be relief that we're not getting any new kicks. This new collaboration had a real good feel about it. You can't deny the talent, and it would've been great for actress to twiddling the knobs again.

I think I know my brass instruments too, so that didn't pass me by. Typical of you

Hopefully we will at least get to hear the demos even if it's not officially released. The bones would have been amazing live, shame we won't get the chance to see em. Would be nice if one of the band would at least comment /confirm the situation to us potential fans of this potentially awesome band sad.gif
