Weekly Nostalgia: The Stereo
 
When it comes to bands you can't believe never hit the big time, The Stereo has to be on your short list. The promising pop-rock band only released three full-length records, but alongside Jamie Woolford's seamless vocal power and production know-how, the ever-shifting lineup made plenty of waves in a very short period of time. As one of Fueled by Ramen's first real successes, the Stereo were a diamond in a coalmine during a time when nu-metal, boy bands and snarky pop-punk ruled the scene. Woolford and bassist Chris Serafini eventually went on to form the equally-as-wonderful (and equally-as-downplayed) Let Go, who've currently seen the release of one full-length, back in 2006. Despite featuring one of the single most incredible voices in all of rock music, the Stereo never took off like they should have, and it will almost certainly remain one of life's greatest mysteries as to why the world never caught on. Nowadays, both founding members Woolford and Rory Phillips make an honest living as producers. Phillips has worked with the Higher and Armor For Sleep, amongst others; Woolford has been busy with pop-punk staples like Punchline and up-and-comers Augustine, as well as many other AP.net favorites. The Stereo deserve your attention - no matter how long it's been.

Thanks for posting this... I remember having a The Stereo poster in my room in high school promoting their album "Three Hundred". How about you feature The Impossibles next week....?

I can't find any good videos to any songs from their debut, but Google their 1999 album Three Hundred. Also, if you like the Stereo, definitely give Let Go a shot.

If you replace numetal with metalcore...then combine both pop-punk and metalcore with the boy band comment...I'd say not much has changed! :p

Never heard of these guys though - I was a bit young when all this came out. Good stuff though.
