In 1996, a colleague and I were talking in the school staff room where I worked.
"Forget the Manics and Catatonia", he said. "I went to concert last night and saw the most amazing Welsh group I have ever seen."
While I might disagree with my colleague's assessment of the superiority of The Stereophonics over other great Welsh musicians, they are certainly deservedly in the top rank. This is probably their besy known song, marred for me only by the fact that Kelly Jones's vocals sound almost exactly the same as Rod Stewart's version of the same song.
