The members of SUPERGRASS suffered a barrage of problems as they recorded their new album ROAD TO ROUEN, after a herd of mice set up home in frontman Gaz Coombes' piano.

The British rockers decided to record their latest album, which is set for release on Tuesday (27SEP05), in a French barn, and nature soon got the better of them when they attracted a large number of unwanted visitors.

Frontman GAZ COOMBES says, "It's a really good way to make an album. The only problem was mice started living in my piano.

"I think they were playing songs when we weren't around. They're gone now. I got a French farmer to shoot them."
