Supergrass: Acoustic on KCRW

When you think of Supergrass, it's probable that you think of ungainly muttonchop sideburns, music videos of them romping through a grassy park, and a lead singer who I find reminiscent of the lead flying monkey in the Wizard of Oz. The playful indie-rock quartet from Oxford stopped by the KCRW studios in September of 2004 to record some nice acoustic versions of songs from I Should Coco (1995), In It For The Money (1997) and Life on Other Planets (2003).

It's a harmonic, bright, and thoroughly enjoyable little set.

01. "Funniest Thing"
02. "Late In The Day"
03. "Seen The Light"
04. "Sun Hits The Sky"
05. "Caught By The Fuzz"
06. "Sitting Up Straight"

Supergrass! You've outdone yourself, Heather. One of my favorite bands, and Sam was right: they don't receive nearly enough U.S. love. Thanks again.

Most of the good bands will never be heard if it wasn't for stations like KCRW.
