The new IDEA book is SPIKE ISLAND. A photographic documentary of a legendary single day event held in the North of England on May 27, 1990. The occasion was a concert by The Stone Roses. The location was Spike Island, Widnes, Cheshire.
The book is not about The Stone Roses as such - endlessly fabulous as they are. This is a book about the fans - who they were as defined by what they wore. Photographed by Dave Swindells, Patrick Harrison and Peter J Walsh, SPIKE ISLAND is a visual encyclopaedia of 80s/90s British street style. When indie rock met dance in the third summer of love.
