Crass played their final gig there.
Stereophonics signed at Coliseum
The Stereophonics from nearby Cwmaman got their first big break after a concert at the Coliseum Theatre. In March 1996, a rock gig was held at the Coliseum Theatre featuring up and coming Welsh bands Catatonia, along with local bands Krazy Keyboards (later to become Dylan Thorn), Pocket Devils and Tragic Love Company (aka the Stereophonics). Famous rock band manager John Brand attended the concert to see the Pocket Devils, but was so impressed with the Tragic Love Company (Stereophonics) he signed them. Three months later and the Stereophonics would sign their record deal with Richard Bransons V2 label.
