Snap Scene: Gaz Coombes – Corner Hotel – 16th September 2018

Gaz Coombes has completed a series of East Coast dates in support of his third solo album, World’s Strongest Man. Gaz has evolved from ‘former Supergrass frontman’ to hugely respected Mercury nominated solo artist, with last album, Matador, nominated for the U.K.’s prestigious Mercury Prize.

World’s Strongest Man was released on Hot Fruit/Caroline Australia on 4 May 2018. The record is inspired variously by Grayson Perry’s The Descent of Man, Frank Ocean’s Blonde, Californian weed, British woodlands, unchecked toxic masculinity and hip hop (and a whole lot more besides), it is a bold, ambitious, free-thinking, future-facing rock‘n’roll record.

This will be Gaz Coombes first solo tour to Australia. Gaz is a long way away from the Britpop frontman in Supergrass, but his songwriting chops, charm and trademark sideburns remain.
