Supergroup Alert! – Chaz Chance & the Prophets

If you’re a fan of Britpop of 70s British glam rock, pay attention. There’s a new supergroup featuring members of Supergrass, The Smiths, Roxy Music, and Suede. I’m not sure if this is going to become a full time project, but a guy can dream. So far they’ve recorded three songs for some British show called The RecordsPhil Manzanera, Mike Joyce, Mat Osman and Gaz Coombes have released a song called “She’s a Queen,” and it sounds exactly like you want it to. It’s extraordinarily Bowie-esque, but I will always approve of bands aping on Bowie. It’s not purely a Bowie rip off and includes just enough of a Britpop sneer to have a fresher sound. I have no idea what The Records is, but let’s hope the show has a long, long run.
