The Stone Roses frontman Ian Brown has mocked the Daily Mail.

As the Madchester band reunited at a press conference today, the 'I Am The Resurrection' singer hit out at a journalist working for the newspaper.

Brown said: "What does it feel like to represent a newspaper that used to support Adolf Hitler? And supports the banker Kabbalists that are ruining the world? Did you vote Tory?"

When the reporter in question claimed that he is not a Conservative Party supporter, Brown added: "No-one ever votes Tory, do they?"

Meanwhile, the 48-year-old also revealed that 'Shoot You Down' from their eponymous debut album was the first song they practised together after reuniting.

Brown added: "It was 'Shoot You Down'. It sounded great. Funky. It was a treat. My own private treat. Like a lapdance really."
