The Stereophonics[edit]

The leading line states that Stereophonics never were called "The stereophonics".

This is not true, they were called 'the stereophonics' just before they were signed up to V2. It is written on various demo tapes. Although the band promtly dropped 'the' and are still known as Stereophonics

Richard Jones?[edit]

Is this the same Richard Jones that Sophie Ellis-Bextor is married to ?

No that's a different Richard Jones from another band - The Feeling. James Fitzy 09:17, 26 February 2006 (UTC)
SE-B's husband is Richard Jones (bassist). Jim Michael (talk) 02:21, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

Stuart Cable dead[edit]

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/wales/10253098.stm Hes now dead might want to edit the main page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 93.97.197.76 (talk) 12:36, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

Restructuring[edit]

I flagged this article as requiring restructuring because of the "jumbled" nature of the content. For example you have information on the band history in the introduction but more should be said about how the critics have repeatedly savaged their fantabulous coolness

Update to Trivia section[edit]

I have added a little bit to the trivia section, to include the little bit about the hit song Dakota being used in the opening of the TV Show Veronica Mars. If this is incorrect please kindly remove it, many thanks, Rgp2130 11:51, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

Problems to show the infobox[edit]

the subjectline says more or less everything. when i visit the stereophonics (band) site with firefox on wiki then it shows my just a bunch of code things instead of the infobox. please fix that. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.127.3.204 (talk) 11:23, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

Post-grunge[edit]

Shall I put post-grunge as one of their genres? They do sound a bit grungy to me, and Kelly Jones soudns like a mix of Chris Cornell and [{Eddie Vedder]] Titan50 (talk) 13:44, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

Non-NPOV, non encyclopaedic[edit]

Removed a good deal of unsourced/non-neutral/poorly written content. Tidied up a little, still a great deal of work needs doing with the content. Some of the paragraphs currently read as a list of single positions, which would surely be better included in the discography. There should be more exposition on the history of he band rather than just a catalogue of releases/tours/etc. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 91.104.145.200 (talk) 12:49, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

Still together[edit]

The Stereophonics are still together, unless someone knows better in which case I would expect a citation or at least a note of their conclusion somewhere in the article. Until that happens the first line should continue to read `The Stereophonics are...' —Preceding unsigned comment added by 91.107.4.104 (talk) 21:59, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

Album titles[edit]

Am I right in thinking all their albums are named after lines in a song on the respective album ?Darwin-rover (talk) 13:09, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

No! The albums Pull the Pin, Language. Sex. Violence. Other? and (obviously, if you're including compilations that is) Decade in the Sun: The Best of Stereophonics don't have their names mentioned in any song lyrics or titles, the other albums do though.

'Wicker Park' official soundtrack[edit]

I didn't see any mention of their inclusion on the "Wicker Park" Official Soundtrack.

It was a very suspenseful/romantic movie featuring Josh Hartnett & Diane Kruger.

Oddly enough, the song included in the OST was "Maybe Tomorrow"; however, in the movie I heard "I Miss You Now".

Perhaps, this bears mention, given the fact that it's what led to my discovery of this impressive group.

I had heard of them before, but never really listened to their music before seeing this movie.

In fact, it is one of the better, if not the best, songs on the OST, IMHO. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 221.225.199.62 (talk) 18:36, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

'Les Banjo'[edit]

There's no reference in the 'Other Projects' section to back up that Adam Zindani is in fact teaming up with the dubiously named 'Mel Gibson' of Gibson guitars to create a Les Banjo. Can anyone back this up, because to me it sounds like a load of crap! Feathery Sunshine (talk) 22:53, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

Wow, scrap that! I just found a reference on the Globalone site. Feathery Sunshine (talk) 17:28, 24 May 2010 (UTC)

British or Welsh?[edit]

I've noticed the Stereophonics and Kelly Jones articles often being edited back and forth, as to whether the band/person in question is introduced as British or Welsh. Wales (even though not everyone might like it) is officially part of Britain, so both nationalities are correct. What would be the solution to this? Feathery Sunshine (talk) 00:49, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

Rock or alternative rock?[edit]

Should the lead section read "... are a Welsh alternative rock band..." or "... are a Welsh rock band..."? Ultra Violet Light (talk) 16:28, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Looks Like Chaplin[edit]

Any idea why this redirects here? Should be mentioned somewhere on the page. — LlywelynII 14:56, 12 February 2016 (UTC)

It was the first single, but the release itself was not of note. Perhaps it should redirect to the discography? It is mentioned there. Karst (talk) 15:34, 12 February 2016 (UTC)
