so THE LIST If) 29 Apr 2w:


Despite their unfathomable ability to write classic guitar pop, there was a time and a place for Supergrass, and that was cuddled up in bed, singing ‘Alright‘ manically to the camera in the heady days of Britpop. If we’re being honest they’ve never really found their form again since those riotously cheeky early releases and this tour sees them seemingly accept this by touring a greatest hits set to celebrate ten years of the band. This would suggest they’re about to ‘do a Suede’ and go their separate ways, and should make for an emotionally charged show filled with nostalgia and those trademark infectious choruses, so enjoy it while you can.
