Welsh band Stereophonics were one of the most successful acts to survive Britpop. Word Gets Around was their debut album and was originally released in 1997. It had a steady growth in popularity before tracks like Traffic and Local Boy In The Photograph really caught the imagination of the general public. Now you can get a copy on vinyl, if you so wish.

I was listening to "Too Many Sandwiches" at one point recently, I realised this band is not just a "poor man's Oasis", but may be better than a lot of Oasis altogether. Certainly the lyrics here are better than anything Noel Gallagher could write in a thousand years, and there's true rock n roll power to go with it. This is the kind of rock music I love, and while their later albums may not come close to the glories of "Local Boy In The Photograph" or "Same Size Feet", this is one of the best debuts around.
