It's like discovering money down the back of the sofa. Well, not money - more like a discarded condom. The Stereophonics are still a going concern to such an extent that they've hired a new drummer:
STEREOPHONICS frontman KELLY JONES says anyone can join the band – so long as they make a mean beans on toast.To be fair to Kelly Jones, he didn't say that anyone can join the band if they can make beans on toast; merely that Jamie once made beans on toast with them.
The group recently had a shake-up with JAMIE MORRISON, ex drummer with NOISETTES, replacing JAVIER WEYLER.
That's not to say that introducing some sort of skills test for being in the Stereophonics is a bad idea - and, to be honest, being able to make beans is probably a better target than knowing how to play Pick A Part That's New. In fact, we'd encourage the band to concentrate more on low-level catering for the next few years.
