As Supergrass prepare to close Tramlines festival this weekend, we take a look back at the magical moment.

Ever seen a piano plonked in the middle of a public space and had the sudden urge to play it?

Well, back in 2018, Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes did just that.

The rocker was headed to Spanish festival Bilbao BBK Live from Heathrow airport when he came across one such piano and couldn't help but have a tinkle on the ivories.

And what else could he possibly play than the piano riff to one of Supergrass' most-loved tracks?

As the band prepare to headline the final night of Tramlines Festival 2021, remind yourself of his mini-rendition of the 1995 track Alright in his video clip above, which was shared from his official Twitter account.

Watch the video for the original single, which sees the fresh-faced rockers romp around below:
