‘In It For The Money’ By SUPERGRASS – Second Album Released In 1997

Old and new albums to make your day

26 March 2020

To celebrate SUPERGRASS‘ return let’s go back to 1997, to their excellent second album, their bestseller IN IT FOR THE MONEY released on 21 April 1997. The LP reached at No. 2 in the UK, selling 300,000 copies and over one million (!) worldwide. Surprised frontman Gaz Coombes commented: “The fact that it has sold more worldwide than ‘I Should Coco’ means we can sleep at night.

AllMusic wrote: “On its second album, the cleverly titled In It for the Money, Supergrass brought the songs to the forefront, slowing the tempos considerably and constructing a
varied, textured album that makes the band’s ambition and skill abundantly clear.”

SUPERGRASS Released Debut Single ‘CAUGHT BY THE FUZZ’ 25 Years Ago…

Knockouts from the past

17 October 2019

25 years ago today, on 17 October 1994, Oxford’s sharp rockers SUPERGRASS released their debut single ‘CAUGHT BY THE FUZZ‘. An alacritous ripper written about lead singer Gaz Coombes‘ arrest for being caught in possession of cannabis. The track peaked at #43 on the UK Singles Chart and was included on their debut LP I Should Coco, that appeared
a year later. The band released 7 albums during their 17-year stint (1993-2010) and they decided some time ago to reunite. They will be touring throughout 2020. Live dates here.

Here’s the buzz about the fuzz…
