Mansize Rooster b-sides
Sitting Up Straight
I guess the idea behind putting these album tracks on as B-sides was to give people a taster of just how good the album would be. It may well explain why so many people rushed out for I Should Coco.
I remember hearing that this is essentially Mickey's song and it's a cracker. Could of easily fitted onto Coco in terms of quality and there is a fine live version of it on the Japanese Alright single. This was the first song to suggest that Supergrass would become a 'great B-side band' and they needed to be, as Blur and Oasis were already establishing that tradition which was crucial for single sales.
