This unofficial but revealing reunion documentary seeks out the truth about this year's biggest reunion.

With so much being made of the Stone Roses reunion, and the British media bending over backwards to heap yet more superlatives onto an already precarious profile, this unofficial but revealing reunion documentary seeks to tell the real story. Along the way, the Happy Mondays reveal the truth about duking with Tears for Fears, Bez’s name; while Noel Gallagher links in the debt Oasis owes to, well, just about everyone—and everything.
