Stereophonics

Two founders of a Welsh rock band, Stereophonics, Kelly Jones and Stuart Cable knew each other long before the group’s formation. They lived on one street in a Welsh town, Kumamon. When Kelly heard how well Stuart played the drummer, he offered the neighbor to rehearse together. The aspiring artists played in Jones father’s garage. Soon they were joined by three more musicians. In 1986, the teenage group recorded a demo album, Zephyr, but it didn’t earn any popularity. The band soon fell apart.

A few years later, Jones and Cable met once again. They started talking and decided to try working together one more time. The young men invited a bass player, who stayed with the group for a short time, and then was replaced by Richard Jones. The trio called itself Tragic Love Company. In 1992, they started performing in Welsh clubs, singing covers to popular songs. Sometimes, they performed their own songs as well.

The demo album recorded by Tragic Love Company caught the attention of one of the concert organizers in South Wales. He said that he’d arrange a performance of the band on a big stage, but they need to shorten the name for that. The artists agreed and came up with Stereophonics. In March 1996, the group performed in Coliseum Theatre. They made an impression on V2 Records’ representative and signed a contract.
