Sex & Violence - Language. Sex. Violence. Other? - Netflix
Language. Sex. Violence. Other? is the fifth studio album by alternative rock band Stereophonics. Produced by Kelly Jones and Jim Lowe, it was released on 14 March 2005 (22 March 2005 in the U.S.) on V2 Records. After the band's two previous albums, which contained much more acoustic music and an overall mellower sound, the band brought back the harder and more abrasive alternative rock and indie rock sound they were known for and songs such as “Doorman” and “Brother” are some of the band's most aggressive songs. A new wave influence is also prevalent on the album. Jones began writing the album while Stereophonics were on their You Gotta Go There to Come Back tour and recording sessions began in July 2004. It received positive reviews in the British music press, compared to their previous albums. The album reached number one in the UK, selling over 100,000 copies in its first week of release. It was the 37th biggest selling album of 2005 in the UK with over 500,000 copies sold. It debuted at thirty-five on the U.S. Billboard Heatseekers chart. The first single, “Dakota”, was released on 28 February 2005. It became Stereophonics' biggest hit in the UK, reaching number one in the sales chart, and also topping the download chart, where it remained in the top ten for eleven weeks. The single received positive reviews, James Masterton calling it the single of the year.

The song “Deadhead” was previously released as a demo version under a different track name on the “Madame Helga” CD single as “Royal Flush”. This is the second time to date the band have released a full finished version of a demo track from a CD single of a previous album campaign, in which “Nice to Be Out” from “Pick a Part That's New” was released two years later in 2001 on Just Enough Education to Perform. The album started out while the band were touring for their previous album You Gotta Go There To Come Back. In March 2004, after Stereophonics had stopped touring, they went into the studio for eight days to develop new and further develop the ideas lead singer and guitarist Kelly Jones had come up with. The demo for “Dakota”, which was originally named “Vermillion”, was recorded in the one day Kelly and Jim Lowe were at The Stone Room in Shepherd's Bush. The next day the band went to their usual studio Sahara Sound in Fulham where Jones started working on “Superman” and managed to get a recorded for it. The band decided after recording these two demos that this was the sound direction the album would go in. After the eight days in the studio they had fifteen song ideas for the album. “Lolita” was written as a tribute to celebrate the birth of Jones' daughter Lolita. Weyler, who had previously been the studio assistant for You Gotta Go There To Come Back, provided assistance for Language. Sex. Violence. Other? but was asked during studio sessions to provide drums for the demos instead of the drum machine they were using. In July 2004, after the band stopped touring with David Bowie, they started recording sessions an Hook End Manor in Checkendon. Weyler was asked by Kelly Jones and Richard Jones to come record with them, the first time since the demo sessions. Kelly described him as “the man for the job” and when Weyler agreed, Kelly felt like Stereophonics were a proper band again. They started off jamming along to the tracks they were going to record for the album.
