Supergrass: I Should Coco

David Quantick, MOJO, July 1995

I Should Coco begins with one bloke muttering "know wot I mean?", another shouting "ONE TWO FREE FAW!" and an almighty shower of drumming. It ends with dreamy harmonies and someone singing "Thanks to everyone for all you’ve done/But it’s time to go". In between – all 40 minutes in between – Supergrass’ debut album covers every point in British pop rock that geezers with Mockney accents can cover.
