Supergrass - Gaz Coombes, Mick Quinn, Danny Goffey, and Rob Coombes - are one of the most important bands to emerge during the 1990s, with several million record sales, including 6 top 10 albums and 10 top 20 singles.
Formed in Oxford UK in 1993, the Brit, Q, NME and Ivor Novello-winning outfit released their Mercury-nominated No.1 debut album I Should Coco in 1995. Fourth single, ‘Alright’, is regarded as a pop masterpiece and became a massive hit, catapulting the band to global success. Supergrass subsequently released another five acclaimed studio albums: In It For The Money (1997), Supergrass (1999), Life On Other Planets (2002), Road To Rouen (2005), Diamond Hoo Ha (2008) as well as top 5 best of, Supergrass Is 10 (2004). Other top 20 singles include: ‘Lenny’, ‘Going Out’, ‘Richard III’, ‘Sun Hits The Sky’, ‘Pumping On Your Stereo’, ‘Moving’ and ‘Grace’. Supergrass split up in 2010 due to creative differences during the making of their sixth studio album. Release The Drones remains unfinished and unreleased.
In 2019 the band announced they would reunite to commemorate their 25th anniversary. They released a colossal career-encompassing box set and toured sporadically through the Covid19 pandemic; highlights including two sell-out shows at Alexandra Palace and a triumphant return to Glastonbury. Their last appearance was at the Taylor Hawkins Tribute at Wembley Stadium on September 2022. They currently remain on hiatus.
The band members also lead successful solo lives: Gaz Coombes has released several acclaimed solo albums culminating in Turn The Car Around in 2023. Mick Quinn is part of rejuvenated Oxford pioneers Swervedriver but also involved in various solo projects (DB Band) and production work in addition to overseeing Supergrass’s re-issue program for BMG. Danny Goffey has released three solo album for Distiller Records including his latest, Bryan Moone's Discopunk and a self penned novel under the same name in 2023. Rob Coombes has been teaching piano & music therapy, recording his own songs and, more recently, performing with punk supergroup Wingmen.
