A day like today (31/01), The Stone Roses got involved in one of the most controversial episode in the band's career.
The Stone Roses and their road manager Steve Adge drive up to Wolverhampton from Rockfield Studios in South Wales, where they are recording with John Leckie, and visit their former record company, Revolver. Angry at the label's re-release of their 1987 single 'Sally Cinnamon' - and specifically its accompanying video - they throw blue and white paint over label boss Paul Birch and his girlfriend Olivia Darling. "The video was insulting", Brown said at the time. "Blokes selling fruit, a few pigeons, some black woman holding a baby, a picture of me on the front of The Face, a few people in flares... So we went and painted him."
The band and Steve Adge are arrested. Ian Brown, John Squire and Reni are arrested in their hotel near the studio. Mani and Steve walk into Monmouth police station to give hemselves up. All are taken to Wolverhampton. Steve Adge is released without charge.
