Supergrass I Should Coco on Limited Edition 180g LP + 7"
2015 Remastered Edition in Celebration of the Album's 20th Anniversary!
Includes the Bonus 7" Single "Stone Free" / "Odd?"
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Brit-pop forerunners Supergrass' chart-topping platinum 1995 debut full-length, I Should Coco, Parlophone Records is reissuing the time honored classic on 180g vinyl with remastered audio complete with a copy of the 7” single "Stone Free" / "Odd?" which was originally released with the album.
Supergrass burst onto the UK music scene in 1994 with the hit singles "Caught By The Fuzz" and "Mansize Rooster." Their infectious blend of power-pop melodies, youthful punk attitude and wicked sense of humour set them apart from their Britpop contemporaries. Their sound was not tied to a particular artist or era, so has allowed their music to remain timeless. When I Should Coco hit the shelves in 1995, it was an immediate smash, reaching the #1 spot on the UK album chart making it the biggest selling debut album for Parlophone since The Beatles' Please Please Me.
The album featured two Top 10 hits: "Lenny" and "Alright," the latter becoming one of the defining songs of their career. These young men devoured a lot of music in their youth; combining the melodicism of The Kinks and The Beatles, the ferocious rhythms of The Who, the Anglo-centric vocals of Madness with the punk/pop energy of The Buzzcocks into a musical stew that sounded like no one but Supergrass. They delivered a nearly perfect album to kick-start their career; a record that still resonates and charms two decades on.
The LP includes a special bonus: The original 7” single of "Stone Free"/"Odd?" with a reworked red/yellow classic Parlophone 45 label but in its original retro 'Parlophone' housebag. "Stone Free" was originally recorded during a long night at Falconer Studios on April 12, 1995 just after the band returned home from their first American tour. "Odd?" was recorded at BBC Maida Vale on January 10, 1995, as part of their first John Peel session which was initially broadcast 4th Feb 1995. It was also Rob Coombes’ first appearance on keyboards with the band.
