Gaz Coombes, Mick Quinn, Danny Goffey and Rob Coombes were honoured by a PRS for Music with a Heritage Award at The Jericho Tavern in Oxford.



Supergrass achieved six studio albums, countless awards including a Mercury, Ivor Novello, three BRITS, and a string of hit singles; Alright, Going Out and Pumping On Your Stereo amongst others.
Bob Harris of the infamous Old Grey Whistle Test on BBC2 was there to unveil the plaque. He commented: ‘The Jericho Tavern has witnessed the start of many brilliant songwriting careers and continues to be a cornerstone for music talent. It is important we recognise the role these places play and how valuable creative cities like Oxford are.’

Gaz Coombes said:

PRS for Music established the Heritage Award scheme in 2009 to recognise important live music venues where iconic bands and artists played their first gigs. Previous awardees include Blur, Elton John, Soul II Soul, UB40, Snow Patrol, Faithless, James and Dire Straits.
