Supergrass - I Should Coco - Cd

Amazon.co.uk

"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". What makes Supergrass' debut so much more important than, say, Menswear's debut album, though, is that I Should Coco 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. --Louis Pattison

This is a superb collection. You get the original album on disc one. On disc two you get b-sides, their earliest recordings and some demo tape work. All really good stuff. On disc three you get songs from a couple of live shows. The booklet is well illustrated and informative.

If they reissue their following ablums in this format, I will buy them again for the extra content. I am THAT impressed.
I want that to happen and I also want Supergrass back together at some point.

I was lucky i was at school pre mobile phone,when there was a vestige of morality,the pornography of celebrity a foetus,pre big brother and we were all mostly computer illiterate,i still am.These were the days i say as i put on my rather large rose tinted glasses.You came to school talking like a rapper stones would be thrown at you.I Should Coco is a classic british pop record that soundtracked my youth.And it stills pogos around like a kid with ADD who has drunk a litre of cola.Full of beans,cheek and humour it really is a wonderful album.Forget teen angst this is teen jinks.Incredible to think the boys were about 18 when they recorded this album.This is THE britpop album in the truest sense and if the albums of the time were trump cards you can have my Parklife and Definetly Maybe i will have your I Should Coco and Dog Man Star.

Just bought this album last week after listening to "In it for the Money" and "Supergrass" on a pub jukebox last week. Once upon a time, I used to listen to a hell of a lot of britpop, but since then I've got into all sorts of things. Listening to the two albums mentioned above reminded me how good Supergrass actually are, so I bought it, and I think it's just fantastic.
Of course, everybody knows "Alright", but that's nowhere near the best song on the album. "I'd Like to Know" and "Mansize Rooster" are just about the most fun a tune can be, and that's what this type of music is all about. Since this album, Supergrass have grown into a much more mature (but no less fun) band, and this record shows pretty much their most raucous adolescent side, which is at times hilarious, and at others, just a clear ineffable British coolness. Admittedly, it tails off a little towards the end, but when it's on in the background of a party filled with 18 year olds, beer and maybe a little bit of other substances (such as those that Gaz was caught by the fuzz for), it's just storming all the way through. A definate for Supergrass fans, but for those new to the band, get "In it for the Money".

This album is probably Supergrass' best (although 'In It For The Money' is superb too but this has more 'Mojo'). It combines classic punk with britpop in a unique way with VERY catchy songs which go by so fast that its easy not to recognise and appreciate the melodic complexity of them.
The album has alot of energy and is a very fun listen with tracks like 'Mansize Rooster' providing a very uplifting sound which features warm harmonised backing vocals that make you feel good and happy inside.
I recommend this album to any music fan and I would imagine you would have heard the single 'Alright'- well if you like that song (can't imagine why you wouldn't) then you will love this album.
I am proud that great artists like Supergrass are from Britain and i am very proud to have this album in my precious music collection!

I think that almost without question, the most famous song on Supergrass' first album 'I Should Coco' is the evergreen classic 'Alright', an anthem of the Britpop era. There is one line in that song which I really love: "We are young, we go out, smoke a f*g, put it out!", such simple lyrics, but such a brilliant social comment in a way. The rest of the album, which contains further hits like the dramatic 'Caught By The Fuss' (which brilliantly recounts the tale of 15 year old Gaz Coombes'' arrest for possession of marijuana), 'Mansized Rooster' and 'Lenny' continues with the same raw energy and genuine excitement. The opener, 'I'd Like To Know' is another Supergrass classic, and one of my favourite songs of the band, who went onto release a stack of other quality studio albums.

The whole of 'I Should Coco' can easily be played in it's entirety, and for an album that was released back in 1995, you may be surprised at just how all of these songs still sound as fresh as they ever did, and are incredibly catchy. Barely out of their teens when the Supergrass trio released this classic, it demonstrates what a talented bunch of young men they were, and deserve their place among the most popular and important bands of the day. What makes this an even more impressive album is when you consider that this polished work was in fact a debut!

If you only know (and like) the one song, then you'll definitely enjoy the entire 'I Should Coco', a era-defining album virtually made to make you instantly feel good. Gaz and his boys followed this one up two years later with the outstanding
