Stereophonics

A bright new noise in U.K. alternative rock in the '90s and into the new millennium, Stereophonics were comprised of vocalist/guitarist Kelly Jones, bassist Richard Jones, guitarist Adam Zindani, and drummer Jamie Morrison. They were formed in Cwmaman, South Wales, originally as the teenage cover band Tragic Love Company and with the late Stuart Cable on drums. Early reviews cited the Manic Street Preachers as their most obvious influence, and their initial batch of singles struggled to disabuse cynics of this notion.

Yet in Jones, Stereophonics possess an able writer as well as a singer of some distinction, a fact that was only truly acknowledged following the release of their debut LP. One of the first bands on Richard Branson's new V2 label, they were signed by chief executive Jeremy Pearce in August 1996 before the label was officially up and running. They made their debut in November with "Looks Like Chaplin" b/w "More Life in a Tramp's Vest," which later became a single in its own right. They entered the charts for the first time with "Local Boy in the Photograph" and didn't look back. Each of their subsequent singles sold progressively better, culminating in a U.K. Top Ten placing for their debut album, Word Gets Around, and Top 20 honors for "Traffic." The latter's resigned themes provided the perfect platform for Jones' plaintive vocals. A reissue of "Local Boy in the Photograph" also made the Top 20, in the same week as they received a Brit Award for Best New Group. As a singles band, they seem overburdened with riches -- "The Bartender and the Thief" duly became a British radio staple through the closing months of 1998, followed the next year by the full-length Performance and Cocktails.

The band's third studio effort, Just Enough Education to Perform was initially slated to go by the abbreviated J.E.E.P.; however, Daimler-Chrysler objected to the plan and claimed ownership of the actual word Jeep. In September 2003, Stereophonics returned with their most honest material to date on You Gotta Go There to Come Back. Not even a month after the long-player's domestic release, the band announced the departure of founding member Cable. Frontman Jones said Cable had had issues committing himself to the band ever since Just Enough Education to Perform. Stereophonics planned to carry on as a duo while ex-Black Crowes drummer Steve Gorman sat in on drums for several tour dates. Language. Sex. Violence. Other? appeared in 2005. It also marked the debut of drummer Javier Weyler. The band's first live album, Live from Dakota, arrived in spring 2006. After an extensive tour, including performances in Moscow and Latvia, the group returned to the U.K. and released three formats of their single "It Means Nothing" two weeks before Pull the Pin hit store shelves in mid-October 2007. The compilation Decade in the Sun: The Best of Stereophonics arrived in 2008, followed by the all new Keep Calm and Carry On in 2009.

Following a supporting tour for Keep Calm and Carry On, the group once again changed drummers, swapping Weyler for Jamie Morrison. This new lineup was unveiled on 2013's Graffiti on the Train, an album that featured the hit single "Indian Summer." ~ Alex Ogg, Rovi

They have truly unique lyrics combined with a smooth sound that I consider myself lucky to have wandered across

recently saw them in Chicago at the Vic Theater. Fabulous show. Wish they toured the U.S. more often. One of the best shows I've seen! Unique, original sound. Talented lyricists, musicians and performers. Come back to the Midwest!!
One of my all time favorite bands! Saw them in Chicago several years ago @ the Metro. Kelly Jones Yum
I am totally psyched about the release of their new album, Graffiti on the Train, in April!! Fingers crossed they will be making an appearance stateside while promoting...
No kidding. The singer needs to quit howling. This band bites big time

STEREOPHONIC S are the best band I have really heard in a very long time and everyones right, so freakin' UNDERRATED MAN!!! Can't wait to buy up all their stuff...chec k ' e m out...

God i love stereophonic s . i own all their albums and can't get enough. So underrated!
One of the more underrated bands around. Great rock and roll, they pull no punches. Kelly Jones' voice is about as distinctive as there is

Live from Dakota version of Carrot Cake and Wine rocks pretty hard. I'll admit of heard of them, but never really listened to them. Liking what I hear so far.

Found them off a channel seeded by Life Without Buildings and Like Honey.
So far I've only heard a track off their "Live From Dakota" album, and I was NOT impressed at all.

One of the most underappreci a t e d bands around. Granted they have a huge following in the UK, but here in the USA they are falling short...LOVE these guys!
doom22
sweet!!!!!
really really really great!
There are pretty good. It seems like they have combined the sounds of the Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and The Stone Roses...

Ewan MacGregor keeps plugging this band on his Long Way Round movies/tv shows. That is what made me seek them out and give a listen.
