Supergrass : Never Done Nothing Like That Before
Track it down while you can
Back in the heady Britpop summer of 1995, Supergrass were the sweetest trio in the land: young, dumb and full of fun (and cum), before it all went a bit surly on the second album. Seven years later, they’re back – and they’ve gone No Name!
The limited edition ‘Never Done Nothing Like That Before’ is 90 seconds of shoutiness, preceded by a baffling piss-about in which someone seems to get shot. Sounding impressively timely in these days of [a][/a], it’s a totally invigorating return to top form and as English as tea and speed. Supergrass have done the odd thing like this before, but never quite as well. Track it down while you can.
