New tour documentary from Stereophonics: Rewind

The Stereophonics have completed a new 2-disc DVD, Rewind, with some cool features:

Disc One is a documentary featuring conversations with some of these guys: Paul Weller, Noel Gallagher, the Bono, Jools Holland, Roger Daltrey, the Black Crowes and Tom Jones, as well as band interviews and a preview of album #6 which the boys are just putting the finishing touches on (the follow-up to 2005's Language. Sex. Violence. Other?).

Regarding the new album, their recent blog post says, "We've been spending the last few weeks at Spike Stent's studio mixing it, as Kelly would say: 'is sounding fuckin' mega', haha. We are very pleased with the results so far, just a few tweaks here and there, and then to the next thing, mastering it. After that, we'll start working on the artwork, photos, and all that jazz. We'll let you know how things are going."

Disc Two is a live performance DVD which includes some old and rare footage, including home movies of their very first gigs as early incarnations Zephyr and Tragic Love Company. They had a bunch of screenings of Rewind in the UK, and they say if you want the film to be shown near you, then get at least 20 people together and email: info@vistavega.com with the subject line: 'Phonics Cinemas'. Now there's a unique party idea for the music fan.

The Rewind DVD comes out April 2nd.

Also of note: Kelly Jones' eighty-eight lines about forty-four women is in stores now (Only The Names Have Been Changed), and drummer Javier Weyler also has a Spanish electronica side-project going now too.

Can I just say '88 Lines About 44 Women' is one of my all time faves?

Thank goodness the Welsh windbag didn't have a go a ruining it...or did he?

I knew The Sterophonics when they were struggling to fill 'phone-boxes over in the UK. They were three really nice guys back in '97. The Stereophonics died just before Kelly did that solo tour. That was one of the worst, most self-indulgent ego-massaging things I've ever seen. I'd seen every gig they'd done from early '97 up till the end of 2000, but after two or three nights of the solo concerts, we sold our tickets for the rest and even refused to be videoed for some sort of DVD. That solo tour stopped me in my tracks and I realised just what KJ wanted out of the Stereophonics: A career. Everything he's done since fits with that premise.
