Elliott: Spike Island is fans' view
Elliott Tittensor has said new film Spike Island speaks for the fans of the Stone Roses.
The Shameless actor stars in the film directed by Sex And Drugs And Rock And Roll's Mat Whitecross, which is about a group of teenagers travelling to Spike Island in Cheshire in 1990 to see the band's legendary performance there.
Elliott said: "This is a film which I believe is speaking from the fans and that's why hopefully people can relate to it. It's about these kids who idolise the Stone Roses. So hopefully the fans can recognise the love we've got for them."
Director Mat was keen to make the film as authentic as possible.
He said: "Anyone from that time regards that tie as slightly sacrosanct, it's their property. And I think that's absolutely right.
"We went back and looked at a lot of the footage from the time, we looked at the photos, we spoke to people who were there.
"That was one of the things I wanted to make sure was absolutely right, because I knew we'd get shot down if it wasn't."
