Then Leatherface reformed and Dickie played for them again for a little while. In between this he got together with a few mates in Sunderland and they formed a part time band by the name of Stokoe, and recorded one single for Mother Stoat. The band took their name as tribute to Bob Stokoe the legendary Sunderland F.C. manager of the Seventies, who guided the club to their famous FA cup victory in 1973, and the front cover features Bob Stokoe after the game.
The rear cover is an aerial shot of the old stadium Roker park. The nucleus of Stokoe was Dickie Hammond and Golly, the singer from HDQ. Eventually we get to The Jones… The Jones were originally formed as Fatty Jones at the beginning of 1999 by Dickie Hammond and Richie Glover, once in the Abs, and then in Dub War. Andy was quickly recruited on drums and there was one option for a vocalist and Golly was called in.
They recorded their debut single for Mother Stoat in 2000. The name got shortened to The Jones and then they released a fantastic album, Gravity Blues, on Boss Tuneage. The Jones -- from Leeds, UK -- are Kris Jones (vocals, guitar), Kev Jones (guitar), Adam Jones (guitar, vocals), Jono Jones (bass), and Mike Jones (drums). The Jones was formed in Leeds, UK, by singer Kris Jones and guitarist Kev Jones after meeting at a Shaun Ryder gig. From there they went on to become the main songwriters of the band.
The Jones have recently teamed up with producers Will Jackson (Music/ Embrace/Kaiser Chiefs/Pigeon Detectives) and Matt Elliss (The Glitterati, Honeyz ) for production on their album. Some of their songs include "In My Head," "Only One Way," "Room 1235" and "Killer Killer," which was featured as a popular pick on the Hype Machine and broadcast to a worldwide audience.
