"Life On Other Planets", or L.O.O.P as it is often abbreviated to, is the fourth album from English rock band
Supergrass. It is the first album that includes Rob Coombesas an official member of the band. It peaked at #9 in the UK charts. [ [http://www.strangeones.co.uk/music/78_04.htm The Strange Ones Supergrass Site ] ]
The band claim that much of the inspiration for this album was gleaned from a "working holiday" [http://www.strangeones.co.uk/press/articles/mo021005.htm The Strange Ones Supergrass Site ] ] in the
Cote d'Azur, Southern Francetogether, listening to the French radio station Nostalgieand watching Carl Sagandocumentaries on the cosmos[ [http://www.undertheradarmag.com/issue4/supergrass.html UTR - Issue 4 ] ] . Carl Saganand Douglas Adamsare in fact mentioned on the reverse of "Life On Other Planets" under a list of people Supergrasswould like to thank.
The naming of the album was influenced by this excursion, but also by a
telescopewhich qualified astrophysicistand keyboard player Rob Coombes, would bring with him to the recording studio in order to see the planets; "...we got fascinated on everything above us and came up with the title." Explains Mick Quinn.
The band hired an outside producer,
Tony Hoffer, for the record, having felt that their last release, "Supergrass", lacked some of the urgency of their previous albums: "He helped us keep the takes quite short and sweet," says Danny Goffey. "We really didn't mess around because he kept us moving. If we had done it on our own again, we'd just get really analytical and start crying and trying to mend things that weren't broken [http://www.strangeones.co.uk/press/articles/mm030130.htm The Strange Ones Supergrass Site ] ] ."
The album was first debuted at the Meltdown festival in
London’s Royal Festival Hallon 28 June 2002[ [http://www.strangeones.co.uk/press/articles/mn020611.htm The Strange Ones Supergrass Site ] ] .
