Not qualified for Breaking Rock News...but qualified to be news

For geeks like me, this is big news. And I thought I should put it somewhere. But I can't put it on Breaking Rock News, because it is not classic rock in the CHEZ vein. Besides, I am continually under assault for Breaking Rock News, where people say "how come you post Motley Crue news? We barely even play them!" And such and such. But anyway, this is pretty darn cool for Madchester Brit-pop fans. All nine of us. From the BBC:

Former Stone Roses frontman Ian Brown is planning to write and record an album with The Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr, the singer has revealed. The Mancunian rock legends are hoping to form a supergroup to write the soundtrack for a friend's TV dramas. "The idea is that Johnny writes the music and I write the words and the melodies," Brown told BBC News. Brown also wants to bring in former Stone Roses bandmate Mani or Happy Mondays bassist Paul Ryder, he said.

Many of you may not know what the hell I'm talking about. For those who don't, go listen to the Stone Roses. Or Ian Brown solo. Or the Happy Mondays. Or the Smiths. Preferably, all of the above.
