Supergrass Break Up

Posted April 12, 2010, 2:42 a.m. in Breaking News by Jon E.

The long-running Britpop group Supergrass is breaking up. In a statement, the band cites a "17-year itch" as its reason for disbanding. They write, "Thanks to everyone who has supported us over the years. We still love each other but, cliché notwithstanding, musical differences have led to us moving on and of course we all wish each other well in the future." The band will play four farewell shows in June (listed below).

Supergrass first started racking up hype with the dizzy, madcap 1994 single "Caught by the Fuzz", and their debut album, the minor classic I Should Coco, never let up on the bratty punk energy that song established. Since then, the group has been a big part of the British rock landscape, playing near the top of festival bills for a decade and a half. They have released six studio albums, and according to NME, they were at work on another when the breakup announcement came.

Last year, founding members Gaz Coombes and Danny Goffey teamed up with producer Nigel Godrich to form the group the HotRats, releasing the covers album Turn Ons.
