Album of the Week: Gaz Coombes

World’s Strongest Man Out Now via Hot Fruit/Caroline International

For old school fans of the band it’s hard to believe that Supergrass’ debut album is now 20 years old. I Should Coco was released in May 1995 and possessed such a youthful energy (Supergrass’ members were still in their teens when it was recorded) that it’s hard to imagine the record ever aging. It remains one of the classics of the mid-‘90s Britpop movement and now the band (who formed in Oxford, England) are reissuing it on June 15 via Parlophone. More
