        The Waterfront were a short lived Manchester supergroup from the early 80's. The band consisted of 3 original members of The Stone Roses. Andy Couzens ( Guitar ) Gary Mounfield ( bass ) John Squire ( Guitar ). The drummer was Chris Goodwin ( The High ) and David ' Kaiser' Carty on vocals. Although the band never played a gig they did record 2 tracks in a small studio in 1983. Only a handful of cassette tapes ever existed among friends of the band. Andy Couzens owns the original _ inch reel to reel tape and has kindly offered the recordings for a special release to raise money for The Christie in Manchester. Andy and John later formed The Stone Roses with Mani joining years later. Chris ended up in numerous bands before having success with Andy in The High. Kaiser chose a different path and went to serve for Queen and Country. The Rest is History.
