27 years ago the band released their debut album “I Should Coco”

On May 15, 1995 the English band Supergrass released his debut album I Should Cocowhich went to number one in the UK.

The album includes their most popular song: alright.

The group broke up in 2010 and was reactivated in 2019, with a reunion tour that was suspended due to the pandemic.

In the year 1995, Supergrass was made up of the very young Gaz Coombes (guitarist and vocalist, barely 19 years old) Mike Quinn (bassist) and Danny Goffey (drummer).

Released during the heyday of Britpop, it reached number one on the UK Albums Chart.

the simple Lenny (released May 1, 1995) climbed into the Top 10 of the UK Singles Chart, and the single alright (released July 3, 1995) peaked at #2, and became the band’s best-received single on the charts.

Album with marked influences

The album features a total of 13 songs heavily influenced by British groups such as buzzcocks Y The Kinks. A casual and youthful attitude predominates in them, very much in keeping with more successful contemporary groups such as Oasis.

In Caught by the Fuzz, the voice of Gaz Coombes She sounds nervous and hysterical. On an electric guitar that plucks chord arrangements at high speed.

This added to its lyrics makes this song closer to pop punk. While Sofa (Of My Lethargy) presents a lazy voice in the verse accompanied by a relaxed base in which the sound of piano and acoustic guitar predominates.

Lenny is the clearest and most shameless reference to its influences, being composed of a riff very similar to the song Whole Lotta Love.

I Should Coco was included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die (1001 albums you must listen to before you die).

It is considered one of the best British rock albums of the 90s and one of the most representative of Britpop.
