Metro support The Stone Roses - The Third Coming

15 June 2012
Metro has been thrilled recently to be working on prints for legendary music photographers, Kevin Cummins, Paul Slattery and Ian Tilton as they collaborate for the first time in an unexpected exhibition of photography and memorabilia to celebrate the generation-defining ‘Madchester’ band, the Stone Roses.

Whiteleys Shopping Centre is bringing the Manchester scene defined by the Roses to the heart of London with this exhibition in anticipation of their long awaited comeback this summer. Metro has produced all seventy C-type prints of varying sizes to sit alongside memorabilia from the classic line-up.

This unique project documents tracks the band’s rapid ascent from the small club scene in Manchester to worldwide arenas and their legendary Spike Island concert. The notable moments in their career are all illustrated: on the road, live on stage, in the studio and formal (yet somehow still very informal) portrait sessions with the three legendary photographers, Ian Tilton, Kevin Cummins and Paul Slattery who had intimate and exclusive access.

Curator Dave Brolan, comments “These three photographers have between them captured pretty much every major artist of the last 30 years, many as they were still unknown or emerging. Each photographer has a distinct style but a similar honest, photojournalistic approach, showing subjects as they really are and creating iconic images that stand the test of time.  Together, they helped shape the image of The Stone Roses.”

The exhibition will provide a chance to re-live the high energy and passion that bands such as The Stone Roses ignited in the British music scene.
