Formed in 1992 in the village of Cwmaman in the Cynon Valley, Mid Glamorgan, Wales, the band consists of Kelly Jones, Richard Jones, Adam Zindani and James Morrison. They have released 11 studio albums, which include 6 UK number ones. These guys are not just Welsh music legends, but British music legends.

The Mountford Hall, Liverpool Guild of Students was sold out and packed to the rafters for tonight’s show. This was billed as an intimate gig for the Phonics; a warm-up gig for bigger shows and a bigger tour to come later in the year. I know 2,500 people does not seem very intimate, but for a band who sell out stadiums, this is as intimate as it gets these days. With that said, I was thinking the cheers and shouts would be stadium-sized when the band walked onto the stage!!!




My life is a soundtrack, i track my life through music, photography is my passion, my escape, my expression. Without both i have pieces missing, thankfully i'm blessed and get to combine both. Born in Manchester, lived in Australia for 22 years where i was heavily involved in the Australian Music Industry, firstly in bands (Singer) and then managing bands (all original), I moved back to the UK, Wales specifically 10 years ago and married my childhood sweetheart and life is good.
