The Leeds lineup has just been announced. I wish I had enough money to go, it’s bloody amazing!!
Stereophonics are to preview all 17 tracks of their live album on myspace.Check out http://www.myspace.com/stereophonics from tomorrow up until Friday!
Stereophonics launch “Live From Dakota”, a live double album on April 3rd. As a taster they have put some live songs on their My Space site including new song “Jayne”. Got to say, liking this new song, it’s quite “old school” Sterephonics, sounding very much like something which would fit quite nicely along side the songs on Word Gets Around or Performance and Cocktails.
Sounds great though, can’t wait for the album now!!
