Supergrass

Profile:
English alternative rock band from Oxford. Existed from 1993-2010, reformed in 2019 for live touring and a box set. Two members were originally part of The Jennifers. Gaz met Mick at a Harvester pub in Oxford where they both worked part time and got together with Danny to form the band. Gaz’s older brother was an ancillary member until officially being added in 2002.

When Mickey injured himself in 2008 the band went on a brief hiatus. Danny and Gaz performed as a duo called The Hot Rats doing cover versions of their favourite songs in their own style. Whilst Mickey was recovering Danny and Gaz also performed as Diamond Hoo Ha Men, playing favourite Supergrass songs, as well as songs that would be part of their 6th album. An abandoned 7th album when the band were at loggerheads that was recorded in 2009 has never seen the light of day.

All members also went on to have solo careers under their own name or as part of other bands with Gaz and Danny collaborating on each other’s solo outputs.

Anyone who has grown up in a cold climate knows the best way to stay warm is to dress in layers. Supergrass adapt that thinking to their music, layering lush guitars, frolicking organs and a cardigan of vocals to create a warm, enveloping pop sound. Like Oasis, they owe much to mid-1960s British Invasion bands.
...Gaz Coombes burners were a real influence on my sideburns during my time at sixth form!! ;)

Some time ago, someone asked me which was the best band that came out of the Britpop movement of the 1990's - Oasis or Blur?

My answer - Supergrass!!!

While Oasis and Blur may have been the critical and commercial darlings of the era (and may I add great groups in their own right), Supergrass in my opinion were the best band by far from the Britpop movement, who long outlasted most of their contemporaries and in my opinion, have aged a lot better than most "Britpop" bands (for me, Supergrass is just straight up good Rock Music). I'd recommend every single one of their albums and singles - You'll won't be disappointed. I had the honour of seeing them live in 2008 and 2010 (one of their final shows) at the Academy in Manchester and they were incredible.

Let's hope they reform very soon (though Gaz Coombs is having a successful solo career)!
