Supergrass live from Malahide Castle, Dublin

Oxford Britpop/rock foursome Supergrass have been busy chaps in the latter part of 2007 preparing for a new album with producer Nick Launay. I posted and enjoyed their new tune this summer, wherein they discuss a diamond hoo-ha man over a rough and ready guitar line. In addition to that one, there are also three other new songs floating around that I've been interested in hearing. I finally got half (2) of them in a fantastic set from their show opening for (?!) the Arctic Monkeys in June at the Malahide Castle in Dublin. The set was broadcast this summer on Ireland's RTE 2FM.

ZIP: SUPERGRASS AT MALAHIDE CASTLE


Supergrass is doing some limited touring under the alias Diamond Hoo Ha Men this month in England [video teaser here]. Their 6th studio album is currently in its final mixing stages in L.A. and it is due out in early 2008.

If you are a visual person who likes the grand intersection of music and art as I do, there is a very cool book of black & white photography by Greg Allum chronicling the time Supergrass spent last summer at the Hansa Studios in Berlin studios recording this new album.

The book is called The Night Shines Like Fireflies and it ain't cheap, but it's guaranteed to make your staid coffee table just a bit cooler.

I wish I'd taken this picture from it:

Hmm, quite a White Stripes-y guitar line in Diamond Hoo-haa Man there...

Not bad but Supergrass really haven't been able to better their debut album which was a perfect mixture of catchy pop punk and melodic psychedelia.
