I remember watching the video which was out online before this album was released, but I only recently decided to buy the single, apart from how smooth soft and clean the vinyl sounds, is a very impressive tune. Bold choice for a lead of single, but here Supergrass could take on making a statement without having to be branded on the foreheads as 'those wacky kids once again'.
The X Ray Album was transitional and a pop goes mature crossover was evident, especially on tracks like Shot over hill, and Eon, but the singles taken there of was still what you would expect from these guys, all these influences together made an LP incomparable to others, but according to some 'critics' this approach wasn't very well recieved, up to the extent that it came to be disowned even by members of the group itself, So a new approach was taken and it was to develop the delicate touches of those Aforementioned X-Ray Album tracks, blast them with an aura of sci fi and funk with influences of groups like Byrds, T.rex and even Beatles and Presley, having re-established their reputation as four Groovy Dudes, they felt not only compelled to build their own studio and travel abroad, they had gained enough confidence to work out a path of their own, which was groovy to but not according to the common usage of the term. Looking ahead you must know they also promoted the Road to Rouen album with a short and sweet tounge in cheek almost surf esque instrumental with an infectious hey - hoe catch phrase thrown in this a release I will return to comment on later, but taken was that the listener critic as well as layman should prepare to expect the unexpected when it came to Supergrass.
I was taken by st Peterburg straight a way, in saying this is how my favourite bands new tune sounds and it was Profound at the time and still is, it is as concerted as it is delicate, just listen to the delivery of these words:
"Set sail for St. Petersburg
Making use of my time
Cause in three days I'll be out of here
And it's not a day too soon"
This was their first self production and it has a nice rustic organic feel about it. It's doesn't scream Smash Hit, but it is all the better for it. I guess neither critics nor the band them selves realised how good their material was at this point. Many who saw only their potential as 'Those Wacky Kids' might have seen this release as their demise, but it was really the start of something new.
