As the man souire's first ever live show a couple of months back at King Tut's proved. the one-time Stone Roses guitarist has made an admirable comeback following the obligatOry wilderness years of late. Okay. so Time Changes Everything might not have been a stone classic album, but it at least proved Souire was taking his art seriously again - out went the nonsensical Herman's Hermits impression. back came something of the songwriting delicacy which deservedly puts his records in ‘Best Albums Ever‘ polls time and again. And if this all amounts to little more than a nostalgia trip for the hordes of indie faithful who'd fork out to see Squire play in their own kitchen. at least he does it in style; expect to hear at least a couple of Roses classics. and even better no Seahorses.

The more things change. the more they stay the same. In Supergrass' case. they've firmly knocked the cheeky-monkey teenage tearaway act on the head (anyone who remembers ‘Alright' being released the best part of a decade ago. there's your cue to start feeling old). and they're now coming on like a gang of trendy. corduroy-Clad

PhD students.

Last year's fourth album Life on Other Planets. after all. has a deCIdedly astronomical theme. while their last tour was cheekily Subtitled the 'Carl Sagan Taught us Everything we Know Tour'. in homage to the late author. But it ain't all work and no play for the ‘Grass. because they can still batter out sublime pop effons like ‘Grace'. and are always good value live. They've grown up in public and.

at this rate. we'll get to see the mid-life crisis. too. (Dawd Pollock)
