Noel and Liam Gallagher talking about what The Stone Roses meant to them.
Noel和Liam談論The Stone Roses對他們的意義



  
  
Noel Gallagher

Timing is everything in music; The Stone Roses album came out bang on midday on the right day in right year in the right decade- unbelievable timing. When it came out I just thought “at last!” We used to go and see them all the time and I thought “I want that set list recorded as a record so I can play it at home”. So it was kind of a relief- it was so long in the making – we’d been waiting five years for it!
音樂一切盡在時間裡: The Stone Roses的專輯轟然的就在當年的那天發行,也已經十年了 – 時間真的很令人無法置信。當這張專輯發行時,我只想著"終於"阿! 我們一直有去看他們表演,而我想著"我想要那份表演歌單錄製成專輯,那我就能在家裡享受聆聽他們了。" 所以這算得上是一種解脫,它花太久時間在製作了 – 我們為了它整整等了五年!

Obviously it’s their finest ever moment. If I only recorded two albums and one of them was this debut album, I would be fucking pleased with that.
很明顯,這是他們最出色的時刻。如果我只有錄了兩張專輯,而其中之一就是這出色的首張專輯的話,我肯定會高興的要死!

The whole album is so well executed. It’s the exact expression of what that group was about. It was so fucking on the money that it could have been recorded tomorrow morning.
整張專輯是這麼的完整呈現,很精準的表現出樂團的面貌。這就是這麼的剛好,簡直可以在明天早晨開始錄製!

If you want to know what British pop music sounded like in 1989 then put that album on and if you want to know what great classic British pop music is all about in the bigger picture, you should put it on as well- it’s an amazing feat to capture the time of the late 80s and then 20 years later you can still put it on and it still sounds right. It still says what’s great about British music.
如果你想知道英倫搖滾樂在1989年聽起來是怎樣的感覺,請播放這張專輯,如果你想更進一步了解英倫搖滾最經典之作,你一定要聽這張!  這是非常驚奇的手法,囊括了80年代末所有的時光,而當過了20年之後再來聽這張專輯,你仍然會覺得悅耳。我還是要說一下,這張絕對是最偉大的英搖專輯!

Musically its painting pictures from a time, and I don’t just mean 1989- it also harks back to the 60’s that I am obsessed with, yet still without being retro.
音樂上來說它已經度過了一段歲月,而我不認為它只屬於1989年的音樂,它也包含了我曾迷戀的60年代,讓人不親自回到過去即能體會。

They could have only come from Manchester. The attitude and the swagger is one thing, the clothes is another, but to make music that is so of its fucking time, but that is also timeless could only happen in Manchester – it just doesn’t really happen anywhere else. This album, and the band, have achieved mythical status. They inspired us.
他們全都只來自曼徹斯特。那樣大搖大擺的態度只是一件事,服裝上又是另一回事,但製作音樂只留在那段時間,那也只能永恆的留存在曼徹斯特這個城市,它絕對不會是任何地方都會冒出來的事。這張專輯,這個樂團,已經達到了神話的地位。他們激發了我們靈感。

The first time music that ever did anything for me was when I heard The Smiths and then I saw The Stone Roses at the International II just before the album came out and I thought, Yes! That’s here today, in my face, I can go with that. Morrissey was a bit weird for me, but Ian Brown was more of a lad. Him and John Squire were just lads, straight off the street, making this incredible music, and it really appealed to me.
一開始聽音樂的時候我沒任何感覺,而當我在International II聽到The Smith和The Stone Roses時,那時候他們首張專輯才剛開始發行,而當時我想著: “對! 就是今天了! 我可以跟隨他們!" Morrissey對我來說有點怪異,但是Ian Brown簡直就像是跟我一樣的年輕人,他和John Squire都是,他們在大街上直來直往,並且做出令人無法置信的好音樂,而它也的確影響吸引了我。

Everything just felt right that night and I went home and dreamt of being in my own band.
那晚,每件事情都感覺很棒,當我回家之後夢見我在一個我自己的樂團裡。

    The Stone Roses首張專輯我每天都聽…持續一年左右了,

    對!就像是一種癮,每個時期就會戀上碟內一首歌,從第一次接觸受到

    She Bangs The Drums吸引,夜深人靜時最愛播Shoot You Down,哀傷蔓延的Made Of Stone,離別時響起的Bye Bye Badman,還有行雲流水的Elephant Stone,彷彿置身於瀑布下聆聽的Waterfall,像一道神聖光輝指引我前進的This Is The One,講來講去,其實每首都愛…

    雖然這樣說很不客觀,但還是要說,這絕對是一張神作!

    噢… 我愛死哀傷蔓延的Made Of Stone!! 怎麼聽都不膩!

    沒錯! 這絕對是CD櫃最不可或缺的唱片之一!!!

    問一個跟主題無關的~~Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants ~~這張專輯的封面照片是哪個地方阿???😛

    專輯封面是在美國紐約洛克菲勒大樓樓頂拍攝,可以看到著名的帝國大廈~ 然後我記得是經過十幾個小時的拍攝 (每隔一小段時間拍一張) 合成的,讓人感覺不出來拍攝的時間是什麼時候。
