    Default Supergrass - Where Did It All Go Wrong?

    I just found out they broke up.

    I thought they were going to be the biggest and in the world but they never really gained any traction becoming just another low level britpop band.

    What went wrong?

    They put out one really amazing record in 1999 and then nobody gave a shit about anything else they did.

    I liked all their albums, except their final one.

    I've no idea what would lead someone to expect them to become the biggest in the world though. seriously?

    First 3 albums are full of anthems for our generation and Road To Rouen is the more mature next level breakthrough.

    I never got the last album. It seemed they were already forgotten and I took that as a personal repudiation.

    Good ballads. St. Petersburg, Low C. Miss these guys.

    See em twice (Troubadour and their last ever LA gig at the Palace or whatever it's called now). Funny, my old britpop buddy just recommended the Gaz Coombes solo album, which I had forgotten about and promptly purchased. Could only find it on Amazon.co.uk and looking forward to. Ordered the CD.

    I heard Prophet 15 while I was out and about which was kinda weird after starting this thread.

    One of the most fun tours I ever did was supporting Supergrass. Good times.

    two runs through and loving the new Gaz Coombes 'Here Come the Bombs' album. So damn good. 'White Noise' is a bit traditional Supergrass-ish potent songwriting and chorus, but there is alot of great new experimental exploration as well. Still getting in and it's a joy. Way to go, Gaz.
