Set in the early 90's, Spike Island tells the fictional story of a group of late teens from Manchester who have formed an indie band, and are determined to get to see The Stone Roses at Spike Island in Widnes.For forty somethings, and especially Stone Roses fans, this is nostalgia overload, the clothes, the attitude, and the great music. A very likeable strong cast, especially the charismatic Elliot Tittensor as 'Tits' and Emily Clarke as his school days crush Sally. The scenes at the gig are brilliantly recreated, the atmosphere, the excitement at seeing, hearing your legends, and of course the loved up ecstasy drugs culture. Yes it does get slightly melodramatic at times but this is still an enjoyable 'gig'.
