Veteran rock stars from Roxy Music, The Smiths, Suede and Supergrass have teamed up to form a new supergroup for an upcoming drama series.

Roxy Music guitarist Phil Manzanera, The Smiths drummer Mike Joyce, Suede bassist Mat Osman and Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes have come together as Chaz Chance And The Prophets.

The fictional 1970s glam rock band was put together to feature in a three-part U.K. Tv series titled The Records, which charts the highs and lows of a music industry talent agent, and the rockers have recorded three songs for the show.

Joyce tells NME magazine, "The calibre of the players - heroes, y'know (sic) - it'd be mad not to do it. And the tracks are genuinely good. They sound Bowie-ish, but they're not a pastiche."
