Being a Supergrass Fan
Andy Starkey, lead singer and bass player from Britpop Reunion has been a huge fan of Supergrass his whole life. He even remembers the first time he heard ‘Richard III’ on the radio
“It was about February 1997 and I was driving to my rehearsal studio that I had in Wolverhampton at the time. I was driving around the Cannock McDonalds islands towards Wedges Mills. I had BBC Radio One ‘The Evening Session’ on (presented by Steve Lamacq and Jo Whiley) in my little Mini. The crummy Sony cassette car radio was doing its best to stay tuned into the song Richard III. I didn’t even know it was a Supergrass I was listening to”.
“I said to myself “Wow, this new Smashing Pumpkins song is amazing”. Then Steve says after the song finishes “And that was the new single from Supergrass”…..My mind was blown. This was a huge departure in sound for Supergrass from their debut album I Should Coco. I knew ‘In It For The Money’ was going to be something very special and different that I just had to own.”
Andy first saw Supergrass with The Bluetones supporting on Saturday 18th February 1995. As you will see below he still has the original poster that he “Borrowed” from off the wall in Rugeley Red Rose Theatre.
Throughout the years Andy saw Supergrass on many, many more occasions. He picked up lots of great memorabilia including this very limited edition Chinese design tea towel.
Supergrass Tribute studio recording of Alright
Have a listen to our very own studio recording of Alright by Supergrass below. You’ll find its a very close match to the original performed with all the fun and charm of Gaz Coombes, Danny Goffey, Mick Quinn and Rob Coombes. We probably had as much fun recording it as Supergrass did back in the early 90’s.
Maybe one day ‘Britpop Reunion’ might add in some of Supergrass’s other greatest hit songs too like:
- Richard III
- Sun Hits the Sky
- Pumping on Your Stereo
- Caught by the Fuzz
- Mansize Rooster
- Going Out
‘Britpop Reunion’ also perform tonnes of other massive Britpop repertoire hits like Don’t Look Back In Anger, Parklife, Day We Caught The Train, Rocks, Wonderwall, Country House and more. You really will be back in the 90’s when you book our 90’s tribute band.
