Latest News: John Squire is currently assembling another group in Manchester with ex-Verve bassist Simon Jones..
"I miss going to the match with him" - JOHN SQUIRE on attending Manchester United games without Mani (they publicly fell-out once John left The Stone Roses).

Line up: John Squire (guitar), Chris Helme (vocals and guitar), Stuart Fletcher (bass), Andy Watts replaced by Mark Heany (drums)

After bitterly leaving the Stone Roses in 1996, guitar legend John Squire quickly announced his desire to form a new band and after recruiting Stuart (bass), Chris (vocals), and Andy (drums) in York, The Seahorses were born.

In April 1997, The Seahorses debuted with their glorious UK Number 3 single, "Love Is The Law", which chronicled John's upbringing in Sylyvan Street in Sale, Manchester (incidentally the same street that the Bee Gees used to live on!). Lyrics like "Oasis was a shop with shoes so hot, They were sure to blow your minds" and "Running so fast I can taste the past, Oh take me home!" were suddenly on the lips of almost every youngster in the city. Just as the Stone Roses had departed, The Seahorses had arrived in spectacular fashion.

The debut album, "Do It Yourself", followed in May 1997, charting at UK Number 2 (it was actually beaten to Number 1 by fellow Mancunian, Gary Barlow). It spawned the hit singles "Blinded By The Sun" (UK no.7), and "Love Me and Leave Me", which was co-written with Liam Gallagher of fellow Manc rockers, Oasis.

Andy left The Seahorses in September 1997 as a result of what he described as musical differences, something John knew all about with the Stone Roses. Ex-Roses frontman Ian Brown, still bitter, claims to never have heard The Seahorses material and has no intention of ever listening to it either!

However, in November 1997, The Seahorses bounced back, releasing the new single, "You Can Talk to Me", which charted at a relatively disappointing Number 15 in the UK before Mark Heaney was announced as the new drummer.

The Seahorses were an overnight sensation, mixing classic rock and 90's indie pop. John's guitar work received favourable comparism with Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix and Brian May, however in February 1999, The Seahorses split after arguments over the musical direction of the second album (which although completed, has never been released).

John is currently assembling another group in Manchester with ex-Verve bassist Simon Jones. The World awaits the next sensation.
