10 years on since they introduced The Hotrats, Gaz Coombes and Danny Goffey - one half of Supergrass, obv - have reunited to share a cover of Kelis’ ‘Milkshake’ and now they’re sharing the accompanying video, created and edited by Gaz under lockdown.
“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 decided to make something visual and fun to go with our version of Milkshake & 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.”

It’s the third preview of debut album ‘Makes Me Sick Makes Me Smile’, due this month.
It comes alongside the news that they’ve signed to Dead Oceans.
The trio’s last album came in 2017 with ‘After Laughter’.
The “dance banger” track, which appears on imminent new album ‘Hold The Girl’, is described as a “turning point” in the record.
