082. Supergrass: Brighton Beach, The Cockpit, Leeds [4.8.95]

Artist: Supergrass

Venue: Brighton Beach, The Cockpit, Leeds

Date: 4.8.95

A secret show. No ticket stub for this gig, as those in the know simply headed down to Brighton Beach at The Cockpit, and paid on the door. The length of the queue implied that the secret was out, but even as the band took to the stage, many of the in-crowd were unaware that Supergrass were about to play.

076. Supergrass / The Bluetones: The Duchess, Leeds [25.2.95]

Artist: Supergrass

Support: The Bluetones

Venue: The Duchess of York, Leeds

Date: 25.2.95

At the time, Supergrass and The Bluetones were making their names on the Britpop scene. Both bands attracted something of a 90s mod revival following. The Bluetones played a great support slot, after which roughly a third of the audience left. Those who stayed did so wisely and saw an excellent (very loud) set from Supergrass, who would excel to stardom over subsequent years. No ticket stub for this gig, as in those days you could still queue and pay a few quid on the door.
