Life On Other Planets
Supergrass return in style with their fourth album ‘Life On Other Planets’ which is our latest Album Of The Week
Supergrass occupy a unique niche. Emerging from a messy Brit Pop inception and surviving the Big Beat guitar backlash, they’re four albums into a career that’s spawned numerous hits and they play with a virtuosity and vigour that floors their contemporaries. Conversely, they’re still burdened with an uncomfortable grinning loon image; loved for pop singles while their more ambitious work (the sprawling and brilliant ‘In It For The Money’) is often disregarded.
