image for ABBA nice day - Stereophonics release album of cover songs.
Kelly isnit?

Wales biggest boyband and former choir boys, The Stereophonics have recorded a tribute album to the shiny and sparkly Swedish quartet more commonly known as ABBA.

"It's something we've wanted to do for a long time" Lead dancer Kelly Jones told Today FM DJ Ray Foley live on air this lunchtime.

"To be fair, the other lads weren't really up for it but they know how passionate I am about ABBA and gave it a lash anyway. I think they enjoyed it, Richard's constantly whistling Dancing Queen these days, it's getting a bit annoying to be honest."

During a recent Stereophonics performance at Irelands 'Oxegen' festival, Jones crossed seamlessly and effortlessly from the opening bars of Dakota to the haunting Spanish guitar solo at the start of the ABBA earworm 'I have a dream'.

"It was a beautiful thing man isenitlike?" Jones recalled wistfully. "To go from the raw energy and power of one of our songs to the fairy dust innocence of 'Dream' was like being reborn both musically and spiritually like isenit?"

14 people were injured in the crush to get away from the main stage, for many of the mud encrusted school leavers it was simply too much and the St Johns Ambulance and Mick the Momo man were called to administer first aid and faith healing demonstrations.

"We have discussed a tribute tour dressed up as ABBA doing the dance moves and everything but every time we have to decide on who to be, the fights break out.

I wanted to be Agnetha but the lad's said I'm too dark and it would'nt look right so I'm going to be the one that looks like Brian May isenitlike shag?."
