Like pretty much anybody else who grew up in the 90s, I was a big Supergrass fan – which means I’m very pleased to announce this new gig:
The Georgian Theatre in Stockton-on-Tees
Sunday 21st April 2013 – 8pm – £12.50 adv
After six successful albums with Supergrass (including the #1 debut ‘I Should Coco’), Gaz Coombes is back with his tremendous debut solo album ‘Here Come The Bombs’. Fresh from being Special Guest to Stereophonics on their sold out UK dates, Gaz is heading to The Georgian for an intimate Sunday night gig that you really do not want to be missing!
The album ‘Here Come The Bombs’ is a continuation of Gaz’s contribution to music since signing his first record deal at the tender age of 14. From the ethereally dreamy ‘Bombs’ to the exuberant ‘Break The Silence’, Coombes explores the unexpected whilst maintaining the famous love of melody that marked some of Supergrass’s finest moments.
Gaz released the single ‘Simulator’ on July 23rd, available to download from iTunes, the bundle includeed a cover of one of his favourite songs the Beach Boys ‘I Just Wasn’t Made For These Times’.
“Uncharacteristically sleek and otherworldly” – NME
“Bursting with energy and invention” – Q (4/5)
“‘Here Come The Bombs’ is a sublime first solo effort” – The Fly (4/5)
“From The Who to The Beatles via The Beach Boys, his influences were evident and audible. His new solo album, Here Come The Bombs, continues in that glorious trajectory, while this Wilson-Asher composition is delivered with infection vigour” – MOJO
