The Waterfront was the predecessor for the legendary band we now know as The Stone Roses. The band consisted of Andy Couzens ( Guitar ), Gary ‘Mani’ Mounfield ( Bass ), David ‘ Kaiser’ Carty (vocals), John Squire ( Guitar ) and Chris Goodwin ( Drums ). Although the band never gigged they did record 2 tracks in a small studio in Dukinfield, a handful of cassettes were distributed among friends and to local venues.
These recordings have now been lovingly re-mastered from the original ¼ master tape, courtesy of Andy Couzens for a special Record Store Day release to raise money for The Christie in Manchester. Andy and John later formed The Stone Roses with Mani joining a few years later. Chris ended up in numerous bands before having success with Andy in The High. Kaiser chose a different path and went to serve for Queen and Country.
