May 2, 1989, was a massive day in the world of classic alternative, as two iconic albums hit the shelves of your favorite record store. One was The Cure’s Disintegration, and the other was The Stone Roses’ masterful debut album (also landing on May 2: Joy Division’s final show, in 1980, and New Order’s Power, Corruption & Lies).

On this joyous day, indie617 prez Paul Driscoll and Morning Glory host Michael Marotta leaned in on the Roses’ legendary LP, one that fused elements of rock, psych, dance, and Madchester as echoed from the city of which they emerged. It set a template for Britpop, and nothing has sounded quite like it ever since.

ICYMI, revisit Driscoll and Marotta’s chat below. Morning Glory airs live weekdays from 7 to 10 a.m. on indie617.
