Members of RADIOHEAD, PRODIGY, SUEDE, TRAVIS, BLUR's GRAHAM COXON, NME cover-stars COOPER TEMPLE CLAUSE and a host of Brit-films' brightest talent, including JONNY LEE MILLER and RHYS IFANS turned out in LONDON last night (September 27) to celebrate the launch of SUPERGRASS' new album 'LIFE ON OTHER PLANETS'.
The party at the CC Club in the West End saw a number of UK stars - including Ed Harcourt and Tricky's one-time muse Martina Topley-Bird - take to the stage to cover Supergrass hits in a loungecore style, backed by a lounge band. Coxon, looking relaxed and not missing Blur one little bit, closed the covers section, blowing out the lounge band and instead blasting through Supergrass's 'Richard III'.
Supergrass themselves played a brief set, including current single 'Grace' and their breakthrough classic 'Caught By The Fuzz'.
Aside from Keith Flint, Ed O'Brien and Colin Greenwood, Radio 1 Breakfast show host Sara Cox, her friend Zoe Ball, actor Sean Pertwee,Noel Gallagher's ex-wife Meg Mathews and Brit artist Damien Hirst were also spotted.
