An edited version of BUG's show dedicated to Supergrass - which took place at the BFI Southbank in London a few days before the start of lockdown - has just been released on the BFI's YouTube channel.

The special show, hosted by Adam Buxton, brought together Supergrass's greatest music videos for the first time on the big screen, coinciding with the release of a definitive box-set collection of their six studio albums by BMG, and the end of the band's sellout reunion tour.

In the show on March 5th 2020, days before all cinemas closed due to the Covid-19 crisis, Buxton took the audience through the band's history and greatest music videos with characteristic irreverence - the show is dotted with fascinating "Grass Fax" - and was also joined on stage by directing duo Dom & Nic (Dominic Hawley and Nic Goffey), who worked with the band from their earliest days, and by bandmembers Danny Goffey (Nic's brother) and Rob Coombes.

The hugely entertaining panel discussion that follows provides the basis of the just-released video of the BUG Supergrass show, indispersed with clips of some of the band's most celebrated videos, including Mansize Rooster, Alright, Going Out, Pumping On Your Stereo and a previously unseen video by Dom & Nic for Caught By The Fuzz. 

The film is part of the BFI At Home lockdown series on their YouTube channel, which has included interviews with The Lighthouse director Robert Eggers; Asif Kapadia and Roman Osin paying tribute to late Indian actor Irffan Khan; and writer/actor Lennie James on Save Me Too.
