Gaz said:

“The response to our cover of Milkshake has been brilliant and we’d like to thank Kelis for not suing us! Although it’s doubtful she knows who we are, so we’re all good there I guess. Anyway it was made with love and respect so we’re happy it’s brought a little bit of light to everyone right now.

We thought it’d be cool to use this time during lockdown to put a video together. We wanted to create a snapshot of the mad times we had as the Hotrats… a little glimpse behind the scenes. Danny and I worked remotely, hunted down the footage and sent clips and images between each other for a day or two. I also unearthed some surreal old stock footage and lots of cool fan videos from some of those bonkers gigs we did. Then it was just a case of capturing the energy in an edit. It’s our little lockdown gift of milky love to everyone.”

The tenth anniversary of ‘Turn Ons’ follows hot on the heels of Supergrass’ triumphant reunion year marking the 25th anniversary of their chart-topping debut album ‘I Should Coco’, Supergrass’ reunion tour has catapulted them back into the hearts and minds of fans and critics alike.
