A bright new noise in U.K. alternative rock in the '90s, the Stereophonics comprise Kelly Jones (vocals/guitar), Richard Jones (bass) and Stuart Cable (drums). They were formed in Cwmaman, South Wales, originally as the teenage cover band Tragic Love Company. 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, the 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 honours 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 T-Shirt Suntan EP appeared in the spring of 2000. 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.
