Britpop: Supergrass – I should coco (1995)

„I should coco“ is the debut album from britpop band Supergrass and was released in 1995 by Polophone. It reached the top spot of the UK album charts and platinum.

 

I anticipated some very annoying shit but the first few songs called me a liar with some pretty tight riffs and the yelling „1,2,1,2,3,4“ and the drum intro at the beginning of „I´d like to know“ sounding all in all very similiar to Dead Kennedys (just not so aggressive and pissed).

On „Mansized rooster“ the trouble begins. Some riffs are still pretty cool but the sound start to get worse.

„Alright“ is a classic and I thought at first that it was a cover. 

 

The rest of the album is horrible at best. The guitar tone get´s more and more strange and the riffs annoying, more like some pseudopunk like Blink 182.

 

Overall would it be good if the first 4 tracks were released as an EP. The rest is just pure bullshit.
