Gordon in the morning: The Stereophonics are still going

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.

The group recently had a shake-up with JAMIE MORRISON, ex drummer with NOISETTES, replacing JAVIER WEYLER.
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.

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.
