Supergrass are Feeling Alright at the Wiltern: Britpop stars Supergrass will be performing at the Wiltern on Friday night, in what will surely be a must-see for ’90s nostalgia hounds. Expect all of the hits, with their cheek delivery.
Last year saw the band release a deluxe, remastered version of their classic second album In it for the Money. According to the press release, “This brand new expanded edition of In It For The Money features remastered audio from analogue tape on 180g Black and 140g Turquoise Vinyl. The LP also includes 12” single ‘Sun Hits The Sky (Bentley Rhythm Ace Remix)’ / ‘The Animal’ on 140g White Vinyl. The album hasn’t been available on LP since its original release in 1997. The 3CD format includes 43 tracks over two CDs of B- Sides, Rarities, Outtakes & Live Tracks, many of which are previously unreleased, imagery from revered photographer Kevin Westenberg, and sleevenotes from Charles Shaar Murray. The album has been remastered by Supergrass and all formats have been compiled by them.?
So expect plenty of tunes from that, and much more.
