Yup, Welsh shining stars Stereophonics are another one of those outfits that became huge in the UK seemingly overnight. The band's second album, PERFORMANCE AND COCKTAILS, has already sold more than a million copies overseas, and the group recently had the Black Crowes open for them at London's Wembley Stadium. Of course, Stereophonics would go unnoticed in a police lineup on these shores, but that may soon change. The band has just the right balance of grit and glimmer to appeal to fans of Oasis, the London Suede, and even the Rolling Stones, while the overdriven guitars and pulse-pounding beats should endear them to aficionados of Aerosmith and Guns N' Roses. Vocalist Kelly Jones delivers small-town narratives in a melodic rasp reminiscent of Rod Stewart's, perfectly complementing both the band's folksy blues laments and its barnstorming rockers. Toss in some of the catchiest hooks since the last Smash Mouth record, and you're left with a performance that should keep Stereophonics stocked with cocktails for a long time to come.
