For Everyone a Religion marks a significant moment in music history: when the The Stone Roses played at an outdoor concert at Spike Island in Widnes on the 27th of May in 1990. The concert was attended by around 27,000 people and had support acts which included; DJs Dave Haslam, Paul Oakenfold and Frankie Bones, among other artists. This event went down in history as it was considered a failure at the time due to sound problems and bad organisation. Over the years it has garnered a legendary status, now referred to as the 'Woodstock' for the 'baggy' generation. The title of the painting refers to The Stone Roses' frontman, Ian Brown's first single, 'F.E.A.R', from his third solo album Music of the Spheres.
"Baggy. One of the last music fashion movements. From this point onwards, kids stopped listening and wearing the clothes, closed their curtains, turned on their computers and worshiped a new electronic god." - Pete McKee
