Song Lists: Stereophonics

In the second of the St David’s Day trilogy I explore the work of the ‘PHONICS’. Fortunately being a rock band the songs don’t often change key and I was able to get it down pretty quick without much faffing. Anyway, I hope this is both interesting and thought provoking. *please note I don’t list all the songs, just enough to give an overview OR just enough education to perform 🙂
