Music facts, music trivia, interesting stories and much more. Introducing the "Did You Know" page about Welsh rock band, Stereophonics.




Stereophonics are a Welsh rock band that was formed in the village of Cwmaman in the Cynon Valley in 1992. They consist of Kelly Jones (lead vocals, lead guitar, keyboards), Adam Zindani (rhythm guitar, backing vocals), Richard Jones (bass guitar, piano, backing vocals), Jamie Morrison (drums, percussion) and touring member Tony Kirkham (keyboards).

Here are a few interesting facts about Stereophonics:

1. They started music life as "Tragic Love Company". The name "Stereophonics" was taken from the make of Stuart's grandmother's gramophone.

2. Stereophonics were the first band that signed with Richard Branson's newly formed V2 record label in 1996.

3. Richard Jones couldn't originally play bass on joining the band, and Kelly Jones has since stated, that the main reason for bringing him into the band, was because he is "ice cold."

To this day, Stereophonics have released 10 studio albums, including 6 albums that topped the UK chart. They have also scored a total of 10 top-ten singles as well as one No.1, "Dakota" from 2005.

Stereophonics have sold approximately 10 million copies all over the world, which makes them one of the most successful Welsh rock acts.
