British alternative rock act Supergrass has canceled a homecoming gig in Oxford, England after bass player and backing vocalist Mick Quinn broke his back.

Quinn fell from a first floor window while sleepwalking at a villa in the south of France, a representative for the band said today.

Surgeons at a specialist spinal unit in Toulouse have repaired two broken vertebrae, and are caring for Quinn's damaged heel.

"We hope the crazy fool gets back on his feet as soon as possible," frontman Gaz Coombes said in a statement issued today. "I'm sure he'll make a full recovery; he's a tough cookie".

Quinn is expected to make fully heal from his injuries, although it could take several months.

As a result of the accident, the group's Sept. 23 gig at the Oxford Carling Academy has been pulled.

Originally a trio of Coombes, Quinn and drummer Danny Goffey, Supergrass rose to the top of the "Britpop" pack in the mid-1990s with a string of catchy songs, including U.K. top-5 singles "Alright," "Going Out" and Richard III."

Now a four-piece, with Coombes' older brother Rob on keyboards, the band has cut a 6th album, due for release through Parlophone in the New Year.
