Supergrass – Prophet 15 (2002)


Supergrass 2002

Supergrass were undoubtedly one of the best bands of the 1990s and they signed off the decade with the swagger of their self-titled third album. However, it didn’t have the craft of their brilliant sophomore album In It for the Money, whose songs have already featured on this blog. In 2002, their fourth LP Life on Other Planets was an absolute creative return. Through most of the album, Gaz Coombes takes pleasure in channeling Marc Bolan. But then, the penultimate track ‘Prophet 15’ arrives as the otherworldly soundtrack suggested in the album title. “I’m lost in a cloud and I can’t get out/There’s no other way, don’t try…” Ziggy Stardust could not have put it better. Have a great week.
