Synopsis

In the early 1990s, before the days of The X-Factor and The Voice, a vibrant music scene grew in the North of England. In Manchester, chart-topping bands like New Order, Happy Mondays and the Stone Roses performed to adoring crowds at venues like the Hacienda - this era became known as 'Madchester'. In 1990, the Stone Roses played an outdoor concert at Spike Island in Cheshire which was attended by around 30,000 people. This film recreates the gig through the eyes of Shadowcaster, a young up-and-coming band whose determined pilgrimage to Spike Island turns out to be both inspiring and revealing.
