Supergrass - I Should Coco
'I Should Coco' is the debut studio album by Supergrass, released through Parlophone in May 1995 "We are young / we are free / Keep our teeth / nice and clean" is hardly an incendiary motto, but the lyrics to 'Alright' rather summed up Supergrass' influential Britpop statement of intent, 'I Should Coco'. It's about being young, about riding on buses, about smoking cigarettes and about getting a little bit tipsy. Harmless fun, even if it does involve being caught with a little bit of hash, as frontman Gaz Coombes memorably recounts on 'Caught By The Fuzz'. 'I Should Coco' 20 years down the line sounds every inch an unforced classic. 'I'd Like To Know' and 'Caught By The Fuzz' clatter along with vintage punk cheer, but later 'Time' and 'She's So Loose' demonstrate a mellow capacity for reflection. 'I Should Coco' is so much more than kid's stuff; it's an almost too-perfect snapshot of adolescence.
LP - This special 20th anniversary edition contains the original album on remastered / recut 180 gram vinyl plus a special bonus 7" single on black vinyl of Supergrass' take on Jimi Hendrix's 'Stone Free' which was packaged with early vinyl copies of the album's initial release.
