REWIND: Supergrass - 'Going Out'

More wonderful music from 1996 as RW/FF takes you aboard a musical TARDIS on a journey through musical history. If you weren't around or were too young to remember the mid 90s, consider this a lesson of enlightenment. If you (like me) were lucky enough to experience it all first time around, then these posts are a fine nostalgic blast from the blast.

Here's a mighty track that took me by surprise when it came out, due to its lumbering riffs, tasty organ hook and psychedelic vibes. I also remember buying it on cassette the week it was released and being intrigued by its video. 'Going Out' was released in February 1996, and reached 5 in the UK Charts. Apparently the song was originally written in the key of E, because the engine of Supergrass' tour bus would tick at that same musical pitch. The song was featured on their second album 'In It For The Money', which was released the following year in 1997.
