If she's not on the five-nineteen,
Then I'm gonna know what sorrow means.

Sadly they've gone their own separate ways but you can still listen to Gaz Coombes solo stuff which sounds a bit like Supergrass.

My recommendation to these guys is START DRINKING HEAVILY!

In their defense, if I got a gig at Chuck-e-Cheeze I'd rehearse this song until I killed it, like they do...  Its got that line and the hook from 'As Tears Go By' doesn't it? For my Chuncky-Cheeze show I'd want to do the entire Stones' "December's Children" as zippy little bluegrass covers. Then I'd go drink heavily to forget how I had to wear a costume.

Really love this song, still... It was one of only a few of theirs I liked at the time, but wow, their Road to Rouen — a frickin' masterpiece!

Whenever I hear it I want to hear 10:15 on a Saturday Night by the Cure and then 5:15 by the Who.
 
For some reason.

You are a real energetic bumper. From 7 to 8...? Woow - that would be too much a step for most!

Musically, it doesn't sound very similar to me, but since the first lyric line of that song is also the first line of this song, that's probably where the recognition comes from.

It's further confused by the melody line there being so close to Chicago's "25 or 6 to 4" or however you spell that.

That goes for the Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa....anywhere. A little surveying of people's reactions to songs that are just a little non-traditional should give evidence to that. Any woman who doesn't sing like a Top40 drone is ripped. Any quiet music is ripped. It all crosses national boundries. Incidentally, when I had cable, they played Supergrass videos on VH1 nearly every night. (Thank the evil corporations that I got a chance to hear them!) I don't think it's the Corporations that wreck music. People are addicted to medocrity and listen to music as a passive activity. So, the labels and radio stations stoop to the level. There is plently of blame to go around :)
Intersting post...almost four years ago this was posted..now look at the record lables... there going broke, distribution of music is changing, for the good, I hope so, the lables have been ripping off the artists for years. I have some friends that have given there best shot in the music business, only to be shot down or ripped off by the record lable executives. Times...they are a changing...for music that is...Thanks RP for what you do!!!!

Yeah, I remember those days - at one point I had this tune playing in my head over and over at around 3 am ("If she's not on that 3:15 then I'm gonna know what sorrow means.") I just got into Supergrass and I didn't realize until know that this was they're song. They're really versatile - this doesn't sound much like anything on Road to Rouen.
