To mark this week’s UK cinematic release of Mat Whitecross’s Spike Island (2012) – the new movie about four young Manchester teens and their journey to The Stone Roses most famous gig, Spike Island circa 1990 – we’ve been provided with THREE brilliant DVD bundles about music to give away to our devoted readership, which include the following films: Gus Van Sant’s Stoned, Joe Strummer: The Future is Unwritten and Human Traffic. Prizes come courtesy of Vertigo Films, UK distributor of Spike Island. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

Shadowcaster are a four-piece band from Manchester. Or more accurately, they are five lads with guitars and a garage and an ambition to forget school, forget their troubled home lives, forget GCSEs and see their heroes, The Stone Roses, as they play the biggest gig of their career. The band are convinced that all they need is to get tickets, get to the gig, meet Ian Brown, give him their demo tape, and the rest, as the saying goes, will be history. A simple enough plan. But with no tickets and a sold out gig to contend with, the boys embark on a road trip in a ‘borrowed’ florist’s van to Spike Island.

To be in with a chance of winning one of THREE Spike Island DVD bundles, just answer the following simple question:

What was the title of Shane Meadows’ recent Stone Roses documentary?

a) Elephant Stone
b) Fool’s Gold

c) Made of Stone
