tunes : stereophonics
loud and raucous : tender and dear : i listen
Hi All -
One of my favorite bands is the Stereophonics from the UK. They're a punk-rock band, and if I had to choose, their first album Word Gets Around is my favorite. The other album I love is You Gotta Go There To Come Back, which includes the ultra-sexy Maybe Tomorrow. This is the album that makes die hard fans cringe because the band took a bit of a departure from their original raw sound by including horns, strings, and R&B back up singers. Purists hate that kind of thing, but I think it's great and provides a rich sound.
One of the best features of their website is that you can listen to every song and watch all their videos in full. It Means Nothing is a nice track from their current album Pull The Pin and was written in July 2005 when the band was on tour in the US. The bombings occurred in England at the time and they didn't know if their families were ok. This video is from a performance on Later with Jools Holland. Even if you don't watch the whole thing, check out the eyes of the lead singer, Kelly Jones.
Did you see Kelly's eyelashes? I can gaze into those dreamy eyes all day lo ... [SNAP OUT OF IT!] But, they mean nothing because he's an accomplished musician with gorgeous hair and not to be objectified ;). Poor Scott, but he loves Amanda Peet, so we're even.
Do you have a favorite musician/band you would listen to from now until the end of time? Do tell.
