Tour "souvenir" breathes real fire
Back For More – Rocket Science b/w Sick – Supergrass (Sound Pressing)
This is a double A side to mark the 2020 Australian tour that never was by Brits Supergrass and home-grown psych-garage rockers Rocket Science. COVID killed off that run, which was part of an ambitious world tour by Supergrass. Plans are afoot to make up for that, but for now this offering will have to do…
First to Rocket Science: Roman Tucker's throaty organ and some stop-start fuzz guitar dominate the breathless “Back For More”, recorded live at an in-store at Tym Guitars (R,I.P.) in Brisbane after the release of their fabulous reformation album, “Snake”. It’s a reminder that simple songs are often best - and that the album ruled if you didn’t wrap your ears around it at the time of release.
The Supergrass track belies any prejudices that these guys were just another Pommie pop band that didn’t (or doesn’t) rock. It’s another live effort from a 2020 live-to-air and sounds huge. Main man Gaz spits out lyrics that could be as much about the frustrations of a global pandemic as mental ill-health. Dark and powerful.
