Hot Rats covered in glory


SUPERGRASS supergroup Hot Rats, which sees Gaz Coombes and Danny Goffey teamed up with Radiohead and Beck producer Nigel Godrich, should rat race straight into your collection.
Set up to fill the void while Supergrass' bassist Mick Quinn recovered from a freak sleepwalking injury, Turn Ons is a collection of cover versions of tracks ranging from Roxy Music's Love Is The Drug to the Beastie Boys' (You've Gotta) Fight For Your Right.
Each is approached with a real sense of fun - and perhaps without the weight of expectation that comes with each Supergrass release - and as a a result the LP is a real blast for the listener too, best shown by the stomping version of The Cure's Lovecats, which Hot Rats fused with an Iggy Pop, Lust For Life groove.
Hot Rats' Turn Ons - exciting stuff indeed.
