Aziz Ibrahim and Inder Goldfinger have announced a series of gigs to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Ian Brown’s debut solo album, Unfinished Monkey Business.
1998 saw the remarkable return of Ian Brown following the demise of The Stone Roses after their infamous death-knell appearance as headliners at the 1996 Reading Festival.
Many had written off the frontman known as ‘King Monkey’ after a somewhat shambolic performance at Reading, but his resurrection was to prove triumphant and prolific.
Brown’s 1998 lo-fi return featured an eclectic collection of musicians, an approach which served him well over six solo LPs prior to the Roses’ unlikely return in 2012.
Aziz Ibrahim, who had replaced John Squire as the Roses’ guitarist, co-wrote such Ian Brown classics as ‘Corpses’, and ‘My Star’ and Inder Goldfinger was a regular live percussionist on Ian Brown’s numerous tours.
