The Q Awards 1995
Best New Act
Traditionally, they call it "hotly-contested", and "hard-fought". But not this year. Supergrass won 1995's Best New Act award by what was once, in pre-decimal days, a country mile. The readers were near-unanimous in their high opinion of recent Q cover stars Gaz Coombes, Danny Goffey and Mickey Quinn (with honourable mention to shortlistees Cast, Foo Fighters, Alanis Morissette, Ash and Elastica).
"Unaccustomed as we are... Thank you very much. Thanks. Cheers." - Supergrass
