Supergrass Create New Covers Band

August 12, 2009 by  


Supergrass’ Gaz Coombes and Danny Goffey have now teamed up with world-renowned producer Nigel Godrich to form The Hot Rats.

With the initial idea of simply throwing themselves together into the studio to see what would happen, they are in the process of creating their own ?Pin Ups? style versions of classic songs celebrating some of pop and rock?s greatest contributors over the last 40 years.

With whispers of Syd Barrett, Roxy Music and The Sex Pistols floating up from the dark recesses of the studio, this latest Goffey/Coombes side project is said to be born out of a true love and respect for their rock heroes and promises to be a corker.

This is not the first time the duo has worked in this capacity. Gaz and Danny took on the shady characters of Duke Diamond (AWOL) and Randy Hoo Ha (RIP) – AKA The Diamond Hoo Ha Men – when bassist Mick Quinn suffered severe back injuries after a fall.

They will be playing at:

London – Old Blue Last (26th Aug)
Brighton – Coalition (27th Aug)
Leeds/Reading Festival (Sat 29th Aug/Sun 30th Aug)
Bestival (Sat 12th Sept)
