Hailing from Oxford, England, Superrass consists of guitarist/vocalist Gaz Coombes, bassist Mickey Quinn, and drummer Danny Goffey. Their first single, "Caught by the Fuzz," was recorded in the summer of 1994 on the indie label Backbeat. The song generated a significant amount of buzz, including praise from artists Blur and Elastica. "Mansize Rooster," the group's second single, was released in the spring of 1995; it made it into the pop charts, as did "Lenny," which was released right before their debut album, “I Should Coco”. The song, released May 1995, received glowing reviews in the U.K. press and debuted in the Top Ten. The band's popularity continued to grow, leading to the number two double A-sided single, “Alright/Time”. Staying in the Top Three for nearly a month, the single pushed the album to number one. “I Should Coco” was released in the U.S. three months later and a buzz began to build as "Caught by the Fuzz" began receiving MTV and radio play. “In It for the Money” followed in 1997, and in 1999 the band issued its self-titled third LP, which received a belated American release the following spring. “Road to Rouen” arrived three years later.
