The Hotrats (Supergrass’ Gaz Coombes and Danny Goffey) have shared a homemade music video to match their cover of Kelis’ classic track, ‘Milkshake’. The clip was created and edited by Gaz Coombes at home under lockdown.
Described as “deeply odd and wholly wonderful” by the Sunday Times Culture, and simply “magnificent” by the Guardian, The Hotrats have today shared a visual accompaniment to ‘Milkshake’, created and edited by Gaz Coombes at home under lockdown. Watch HERE.
Gaz explains: “The response to our cover of Milkshake has been brilliant and we’d like to thank Kelis for not suing us! Although it’s doubtful she knows who we are, so we’re all good there I guess. Anyway it was made with love and respect so we’re happy it’s brought a little bit of light to everyone right now.
We decided to make something visual and fun to go with our version of Milkshake & thought it’d be cool to use this time during lockdown to put a video together.
We wanted to create a snapshot of the mad times we had as the Hotrats… a little glimpse behind the scenes. Danny and I worked remotely, hunted down the footage and sent clips and images between each other for a day or two. I also unearthed some surreal old stock footage and lots of cool fan videos from some of those bonkers gigs we did. Then it was just a case of capturing the energy in an edit.
It’s our little lockdown gift of milky love to everyone.”
