Supergrass DON'T play intimate London show

But The Diamond Hoo Ha Men look awfully familiar...

Supergrass DON'T play intimate London show
The Diamond Hoo Ha Men - quite possibly Supergrass' Danny Goffey and Gaz Coombes in white jumpsuits - played a rare intimate show at Madame Jojo's in central London last night (December 17).

With bassist Mickey Quinn currently recovering from a
broken back, Supergrass are currently taking time out from live duties.

However Randy Hoo Ha and Duke Diamond - who bear an uncanny likeness to the Oxford band's drummer and singer - have taken it upon themselves to showcase the band's new tracks from forthcoming album and classics with a series of two-man acoustic shows.

Emerging onstage with an immediate observation of "tough London crowd", the pair opened with a cover of Michael Jackson's 'Beat It', inspiring a loud singalong in the basement club.

"We're going to be playing a selection of new songs and cheeky cover versions," announced Diamond, adding that "we'll get to those later" as the duo introduced '3,4,5' - a track to be given away as a free download on NME.COM later this week.

"We're going to play a few Supergrass covers for you now," announced Diamond, before launching into 'Never Done Nothing Like That Before' and 'Lenny'.

The pair then left the stage, declaring: "We've got no more songs." However, they quickly returned for an encore explaining they "hadn't been going too long" and were "a recent project" hence more Supergrass covers, namely a storming version of 'Caught By The Fuzz', which had the crowd in good voice.

The Diamond Hoo Ha Men, or perhaps members of Supergrass, played:

'Beat It'
'Bad Blood'
'Rough Knuckles'
'Never Done Nothing Like That Before'
'Diamond Hoo Ha Men'
'Caught By The Fuzz'

You will be able to download The Diamond Hoo Ha Men's new track '3,4,5' on NME.COM later this week.
