Released: Jan 2010
Label: Fat Possum Records
Members of Supergrass dealt with the injury of a band member by teaming up with star producer Nigel Godrich (Radiohead, Beck) for this cover versions side project. Thumbs up to their reverential treatment of the Kinks' "Big Sky" and the smart Who-style remake of the Beastie Boys' purposely stupid "(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party!)." Also fun is their merging of the Cure's "The Lovecats" and Iggy's "Lust For Life," and their taking of Squeeze's "Up The Junction" to darker sonic terrain.
