Making sense of what I've heard
And what is on my mind
Well don't look down cos it's far to fall
Oh yeah

Count the hours face the fear
It's all you need these days
We're past the post and through the door

We welcome commercial suicide
Kiss the love you leave behind
And let it bother you
Well you do what it takes to get what you can


Last night I thought about her
... love and what I do
It's hanging over me
I'm sure to break your loving heart

I'm down and take a walk down a sugar coated sonified
I've been hanging around for hours
Staring at your holy ground
Ooooooh

...
I might've known that you'd be tearing up the photographs
Oooooh

At sight of all I've done been taken for higher ground
... china dolls and better times
This side of life...
you know this living hell solid gold coming for no one

I doubt these guys ever heard anything by Renaissance, but you never know.

I sure miss Supergrass, especially in the summer for some reason.

Gaz Coombes solo album, which is terrific - will have to do.
Awesome song to crank at any time, but especially as the sun comes blasting through the last shreds of a snowstorm and shines forth! I dig the multilayered guitar-jamming, the wicked keyboards, and the killer percussion throughout and the way it builds, flows and ebbs.
This is one of those songs that reminds me of one or more other songs from the deep part of my memory. I'm not saying that's a bad thing either. I quite like it, but it just stirs other memories.

Very nice tune I've long enjoyed here on RP, except for the obnoxious screaming bits halfway in (or whatever). I used the (free) Audacity (sorry, Windows only) to edit that bit out and now the track is much better.

 
I didn't know Audacity was available for Windows; I''ve been using it for years in Linux.
Sounds like that super grass got Trampled Underfoot, somehow...

Supertramp! err Supergrass

 
The introduction does sound like Supertramp but the rest?  Much better.  {#Music}
Supertramp! err Supergrass
Gaz Goombes is so very underrated as a guitarist. The lines on this song, even tho' I might quibble with the tone, are amazing.

I had some tales of endurance,...first!
Wonderful band - see them live!

Audacity is available for Mac & Linux also. Excellent open source audio editor.
like so many 'great songs' on rp, after 8 years of repetition they start to grind, from 10 then to 7 now, ah well..? {#Stop} so much for 'tales of endurance', in another 8 years it'll be down to sucko barfo i suppose..?

''Excrementa''

Doctor Sigmund has expressed his concerns regarding the way you systematically twist conversations around to focus on
your excreta...
 


glimpses of the Bourne movie theme in there...

The more I hear from this album, the more I like. Such is a good thing.
Thanks for the last hour. Brought me back from a dark place.

Quite possibly the coolest intro EVER...and, whoah, what follows! This baby does it all, and well. Scintillates in multiple spectra! Atoms ionized and electron shells traded! Fades out as comes in, with me wanting more!
 
I agree, there are tremendous echoes of the early Supregrass in here and yet it isn't dated; damn catchy bass line and riff too.
Wow...is this the same Spergrass I remember from years ago?  Very cool....they seem to mature a lot...

Yeah, sure, all of that...but do you like it?
 
I hope you're trying to be funny... someone else was trying to make something interesting.

Crap. Just when I was getting ready to leave work 5 minutes early... Now I'm stuck.
Sounds alot like Kula Shaker.  I like!
NP.

Although Bill plays tracks from the "Road To Rouen" album often, I like their other albums much better!

Too bad they broke up! {#Sad}

Saw them twice over the years - what a great band!

Not a big Supergrass fan, but this is really hitting the spot at the end of a workday.

I miss Supergrass.

Would be great to have a new CD by them this Spring - to blast in the car on a beautiful day with the windows down.

Not so much for me- I only heard the sound of cameras clicking and llamas munching.
One of the best lesser known bands of the past 20 years.

Note to other rock bands that suck...

This is how you do it.
