Hey! Hey! We're not the Monkees. The lads in Supergrass, the most inventive Britpop band to never be Britpop, have finally shucked their image problem. For years, especially in the U.K., they were seen as a comedy act. That kind of thing is misunderstood in the U.S., but in Britain it's like a capital offense. As a result, the masses just never took the band's epic, infectious, Small Faces/Beatles/Kinks guitar-rock all that seriously. But this has all been a big misunderstanding.
