The worlds best fucking rock/indie band in the world EVER!!! With the most fuckable lead singer/guitarist/songwriter/etc, AKA Kelly Jones, at 5'6" I'm one of the girls he's like because I'm short. Signed to V2 records Summer of 96, this band were dubbed by Kerrang "Britians Biggest Rock group" (all patriotic lads from Wales- originally known as "Tragic Love company").
"Jones’s voice is a killer instrument too, simultaneously raw and mellow, while his lyrics nail the disdain, boredom and affection inherent in small-town life." Q on Kelly Jones.
"...just like any other bass player - hanging back and looking cool." Richard Jones defines his role for Kerrang.
"On tunes such as ‘Not Up To You’ his drum patterns breathe life into the song and momentum into the show." The Times on Stuart Cable. (Who was sacked from the band 2003 due to commitment issues)
