Director Mat WhitecrossYear 2013Genre(s) Dramas
Gary (aka Tits) and his friends Dodge, Zippy, Little Gaz and Penfold are an ambitious amateur indie band from Manchester with an unshakeable adoration for The Stone Roses. As a once in a lifetime major gig for the legendary group approaches, the friends are determined to watch musical history unfold as they set out to gatecrash the show on Spike Island. Their plan? Break into the venue without tickets and hand over their precious demo tape to the lead singer with the hope that it will shape their musical futures. However, things aren't as easy as they sound with school and girls as constant distractions, and no initial way of getting to the Island. Not to mention the swarming security and high fences they'll have to pass to get in. Their determined mission will no doubt test their friendship and the way they view the future as they are about to face hard facts about life and dreams.
Set in 1990, this gritty music drama looks at the idolatry and inspiration in the world of music and how bands such as The Stone Roses shaped the dreams of many. 'Spike Island' has been directed by Mat Whitecross ('Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll', 'The Road to Guantanamo') and written by Chris Coghill ('Weekender', 'Misfits Erazer'), and is due out on June 21st 2013.
