Stereophonics - 'We Share The Same Sun'

Stereophonics - 'We Share The Same Sun'

By slowly fading into the background of pop culture, the Stereophonics have created some space to pump out the same old stuff for their fans. So on ‘We Share The Same Sun’ Kelly Jones is gruff and there’s a big chorus, and the faithful will...

Stereophonics - 'Graffiti On The Train'

Stereophonics - 'Graffiti On The Train'

That the first Stereophonics LP since the death of former drummer Stuart Cable is bleak isn’t a surprise. Fumbling with an industrial version of their no messin’ pub rock on ‘Catacomb’ and ‘In A Moment’, it’s evident they’re trying...

Stereophonics: 'Pull The Pin'

Stereophonics: 'Pull The Pin'

You used to know where you were with Stereophonics. They would offer up a few mid-tempo plodders that painted two-dimensional pictures of life in dead end towns, and journalist-loathing frontman Kelly Jones would strain his vocals dreaming he was...

Stereophonics : Language. Sex. Violence. Other?

It’s hard work reviewing a Stereophonics album. For a start, it involves having to sit all the way through a Stereophonics album. Then you’re faced with the onerous ordeal of doling out the obligatory critical drubbing, all the while having to...

Stereophonics  : Maybe Tomorrow

Stereophonics : Maybe Tomorrow

And maybe tomorrow Kelly will wake up, look at his bedside calendar and acknowledge that he’s not forever stranded in 1974 and cease to peddle this sub-Faces bollocks. Maybe tomorrow Kelly will wake up, look at his bedside calendar and realise...

Few bands divide critics and public quite as sharply as Stereophonics . To vast swathes of Britain and beyond, Kelly Jones is a populist rock chronicler in the Noel Gallagher mode. But to many rock hacks, he is little better than a child...

Stereophonics  : Vegas Two Times

Stereophonics : Vegas Two Times

Ironic, really, given Kelly Jones himself saying something along the lines of ‘If we don’t get back to proper songwriting it’s all going to shit’, that this release and the Stereophonics ’ current out-of-the-dumper position should all...

Stereophonics  :   London Wembley Arena

Stereophonics : London Wembley Arena

Stereophonics have one great song. Tonight they career through 'Local Boy In The Photograph' with something close to punk venom. It closes the set and sounds like an angry, bleak classic. That one song aside, watching Stereophonics is like...

Witnness Festival : Dublin Fairyhouse Racecourse

In only its second year, the Guinness-sponsored Witnness Festival has certainly come into its own despite wreaking havoc on the nation's word check facilities. For years the Irish had to venture across the Irish Sea to get their fix on the weekend...

Stereophonics : Have a nice day

Stereophonics : Have a nice day

With Stereophonics' new album 'Just Enough Education To Perform' already being heralded by deluded morons everywhere as one of the albums of the year, it was only a matter of time before this beige smudge of a song came to wider public attention....
