Supergrass have been super-present lately: First there was that unending parade of hoo ha and then last week’s room-spinning video for Diamond Hoo Ha’s second single “Bad Blood,” and now we’ve got ourselves shadowy footage of Gaz laying down the vocal tracks for “Rough Knuckles” at Hansa studios in Berlin. Good to see he keeps those sunglasses on for inspiration. Much of the video is basically the same shot — he looks oddly foreshortened. Every now and then, though, we do get to see more of the studio. As well as outside a traveling vehicle. Lucky us. Something to keep in mind: the Post-it note eyes are creepy. You’ll see what we mean.
Would if be fair to call that performance new-wave Bono in Phil Spector-via-Fonzie drag? No? OK.
