Dance Like A Manc’ might not be the slickest iPhone app we’ve ever seen, but it’s certainly made us smile. The free app is an official release to promote British movie ‘Spike Island’, which is set around the famous 1990 gig by the Stone Roses.

It offers video tutorials on how to, yes, dance like a Manchester music fan in the 1990s, before shooting a video of your moves and sharing it on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. The app was created by digital agency Moonshine Media.

“The three filters have been developed bespokely; ‘paint’ which directly references the famous Stone Roses self-titled album artwork, ‘night’ filter which creates a night vision effect, and ‘flare’ which recreates the atmosphere of that night,” explains its App Store listing.

And the tutorials? They see a pair of the film’s cast members showing fans how to do the ‘King Monkey’, the ‘Resurrection’ and other baggy moves. Consider our melons twisted (yes, we know that’s the wrong band).
