Editorial Reviews

Clear your holiday playlists: Gaz Coombes and Danny Goffey of Supergrass have teamed up with producer extraordinaire Nigel Godrich to bring you the must-have party record of 2010 (and beyond) with Turn Ons, their debut as THE HOT RATS, scheduled for release January 19 on Fat Possum.

What began as Gaz and Danny taking a little time out from their Supergrass commitments for a studio lark has now resulted in a modern day psychedelic punk descendant of Bowie s Pin Ups: often irreverent and sometimes initially unrecognizable but always loving and respectful re-imaginings of 12 classics spanning 40 years of rock, punk and even hip hop. Icons receiving the celebratory HOT RATS treatment range from the Kinks, Velvet Underground and Pink Floyd to the Sex Pistols, Beastie Boys and more.
Having whipped festival crowds into rock and roll frenzies across the UK this summer, THE HOT RATS have now targeted the lovely weather of the U.S. in January for their first ever stateside shows.

Quote from the Gang Of Four on Hotrats version of Damaged Goods "HotRats has recorded a classy acoustic version of our tune which has an immediate nervousness that reminds me, I don't know why, of nights in CBGB's and that, maybe, one final beer will sort the world out"

This is essentially a Supergrass album with Gaz singing and Danny playing drums. When I initially heard about it, it sounded like an ill-conceived lark. Covers albums can be bland or just terrible. But it is actually quite good - maybe even better than the last official Supergrass album. They don't radically alter most of the covers on this album, but they make the songs their own. The playing is excellent, and Nigel Godrich's production is great. Sounds like they had a blast making it, too. One of the surprising highlights is "(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party)" - its really unrecongizable except for the lyrics. Their mostly accoustic version of "Damaged Goods" is fantastic. "Big Sky," a fairly obscure Kinks song, is great too. If you are still following Supergrass after all these years, you've got to pick this one up.

This is an outstanding piece by Gaz and Danny, not really indistinguishable from a proper Supergrass album other than the fact that these are covers. Their takes on various hits by other bands "Pump It Up", "I Can't Stand It", etc. often surpass the originals. I was a bit taken aback at the idea of Gaz covering Jim Morrison on "The Crystal Ship", but amazingly he pulls it off! Not a bad song in the batch. (and I HATE The Beastie Boys!)

If you love Supergrass, you'll love this. GET IT NOW.

I had really low expectations of this record but it is one of the best covers albums I have heard. It helps that all these songs (except the Beastie Boys) are among my faves. Even the tracks that don't quite make it (Love is the Drug, I Can't Stand It) develop rather nicely. Performing "(You gotta) Fight for Your Right to Party" like the Who ca. 1967 would do it is pretty genius. So is doing "Damaged Goods" acoustic. "Lovecats" holds up pretty well to being punked up as does the pop psych version of "Up the Junction". The tracks that stick too closely to the originals don't quite make it, but wasn't that the problem with Bowie's album too?

Great collection of covers. I agree with one of the earlier reviewers that this project is reminiscent of Pinups by David Bowie at the peak of his career. Hotrats, essentially, still Supergrass, rocks the house and is full of life.
How great to hear old nearly forgotten songs like Big Sky (Kinks), Queen Bitch(Bowie) and EMI (Sex Pistols) resuscitated by Gaz and Danny.

If you like this, search for the Supergrass covers of Condition (what condition my condition was in) and Loner (Neil Young).

Ironically, Turn Ons was released at about the same time as Peter Gabriel's Scratch My Back cover album and couldn't be more different. As a nearly 40 year fan of Mr. Gabriel, I must sadly say that he has laid his first egg and sounds like he needs Prozac, stat.
