sonicmod: Hello, we are in with the Stereophonics!
Stereophonics: Hello, this is the Stereophonics.
And this is Kelly speaking.
Nataly: When will you come back in France?
Stereophonics: We will be back in France in
February on the 30th.
Nataly: Did you remember your showcase in
Stereophonics: Yes, I think it was a strange
night. The gig was good but we lost our guitar tech, he crossed
the road and he got banged over the head and he woke up in a
hospital 2 days later.
CronicPhonicFan: So, how's the recording
Stereophonics: It's good. We have been doing
new songs, and some demos. We would like to release a new record
Nige_Sachdev: Kelly ask Stuart how he feels
finally being in the USA?
Stereophonics: He says it's quite nice. Very
much as I thought it would be. Very big and I like the food.
Nige_Sachdev: Been to Taco Bell yet?
Stereophonics: Yeah, we went to one in
Boston. I didn't eat there. Kelly and Richard did. (Stuart)
sonicmod: How long have you guys been out on
Stereophonics: We have had about 4 weeks off
this year. We have been constantly touring.
Nataly: Do you like French food?
Stereophonics: Very much. It's very good
Nige_Sachdev: So, what's next on the
Stereophonics: NYC tomorrow, then we have a
day off Sunday. So we will have some fun.
sonicmod: Do you like it that way? Would you
like some more time off?
Stereophonics: It would be nice to have more
time to see the sites. You get to go to all these places that you
have always wanted to go to. It would be nice to take some time
Chigger: How's Scotland?
Stereophonics: It's very cold right now, but
sonicmod: You don't enjoy seeing the world
from the inside of bars and clubs?
Stereophonics: Yeah, that's the only time we
get to see things. From bars and hotels. We couldn't see too much
last time in NY 'cause it was too foggy.
CronicPhonicFan: Kelly, where do you get the
inspiration for your lyrics from?
Stereophonics: People, public transport,
phrases and life.
CronicPhonicFan: How do you feel about the
way Cardiff is changing at the moment?
Stereophonics: I think that Cardiff has come
around a lot. There are a lot of magazines taking off and
television taking off.
Chigger: What do you think of the English?
Stereophonics: When you grow up you are
prejudice against everything. Every country has their dickheads,
and every country has cool people.
CronicPhonicFan: So, who do you see as your
Stereophonics: Lots of people, films, books,
musically- CCR, Kinks, Bob Dylan everyone. Sex Pistols, AC/DC...
if they had good songs it didn't matter. The art work is
influenced by Jasper Johns and Andy Warhol.
CronicPhonicFan: Do you like marmite??
Stereophonics: No, but Stuart does.
Nataly: Do you like Radiohead?
Stereophonics: I prefer The Bends,
the new album is a little too Pink Floyd for my liking.
CronicPhonicFan: What do you think of groups
like the Furries, Manics or Catatonia??
Stereophonics: I think the new Furries album
is really good. I think that the Furries are in a new league and
have expanded themselves.
CronicPhonicFan: Do you like Stella or
Stereophonics: Stella. You can never remember
anything you do after drinking it.
Nige_Sachdev: What type of movies are you
influenced by, and what are your favorites?
Stereophonics: I like the film Kiss,
Cool Hand Luke, One Flew Over the
Cuckoo's Nest, Woody Allen, Debbie Does Dallas.
Nige_Sachdev: Good call. Especially the last
one. So what do you think of Tarantino flicks?
Stereophonics: I thought that Pulp
Fiction was brilliant. He opened dialogue doors.
All the films are based on dialogue rather than stories. It will
be interesting to see how he follows it up.
Nataly: Don't you ever think of making a song
for a movie soundtrack ?
Stereophonics: We have been asked a few
times, but they would always end up being covers because they
were period films.
Stereophonics: We have to go to a dinner now,
but please come see our shows, we are on the road until the 17th
and we will be back to play the K Rock Xmas
