This is the second appearance at The Adelphi for Supergrass. The first was supporting Shed Seven at The Adelphi on 29th September 1994.
The poster was supplied by Parlophone as a one colour screenprint.
“Along with Radiohead, The Bluetones and many other bands, Supergrass came here through the good offices of Charlie Myatt. We got 2 or 3 shows out of them and they were a mighty fine band, and lovely to work with too. People say; as they invariably do, that the best shows they ever saw by Supergrass were those at The Adelphi.” (Paul Jackson)
“Paula & I refused to knock 50p off a pint for Supergrass, stating they were bloody lucky they were getting served. They only looked about 12!” (Carmel Kilbride – Bar Staff)
”The band went on to play a storming gig. It was at the time when ‘Mansize Rooster’ had been released. Support came from an up and coming band called The Bluetones.” (Priya, Yo-Yo)
“They played a really short gig once, starting with ‘Alright’, followed by half a dozen others, culminating with an encore of ‘Alright’. A few days later they were on ‘Top of the Pops’, playing – you’ve guessed it – ‘Alright’, which had just entered the charts.” (Dr Ian Smith)
