Stone Roses release Easter egg single / February 2036

The Stone Roses have teamed up with Cadbury to re-release their 1992 single I am the Resurrection in the form of an Easter egg.

The chart-eligible single- which contains a chocolate egg, six miniature monkey chocolates and a CD copy of the single- will be available to buy at Forbuoys newsagents for £3.99 from Monday, despite singer Ian Brown being the only member of the band involved in the project. The egg (below) has divided opinions from both ex-members of the band and religious groups who feel the egg looses sight of the real meaning of Easter.

A spokesman for the Church of England has hit out at Brown calling him 'slimy' whilst the Reverend Paul Touchy, writer for the Church Times, penned a scathing editorial on Brown claiming him to be 'out of touch' and a 'senseless fucker'.

Ian Brown has also angered ex-bandmate John Squire who last night tweeted:

" When will he stop soiling the memory of the greatest debut album ever made? :( #dick "

Meanwhile a statement on the Stone Roses official website reads as follows:

"The Stone Roses, the Stone Roses Merchandise Corporation, Cadbury The Ian Brown Estate and the I Wanna Be Adored Save a Child Registered Charity are pleased to announce the release of the I Am The Resurrection Easter Egg. A foil wrapped Cadbury chocolate egg encompasses six miniature Ian Brown 'monkey' chocolate figurines with a copy of the classic 'I am the Resurrection' single. Strictly limited to 75000 and with a percentage* of sales going to the I Wanna Be Adored Save the Child Registered Charity this is an exciting opportunity for fans of the Stone Roses and Easter alike. 
*At least 0.26%

The I Wanna Be Adored Save the Child Registered Charity has been in trouble in the past with claims that little or no money actually reaches its charitable destination. Treasurer Ian Brown has blamed this on "bureaucracy".
