Watch new Supergrass video for the demo version of Sitting Up Straight

Supergrass have created a video for the demo of ‘Sitting Up Straight’, ahead of the release next month of their The Strange Ones 1994-2008 box set.

‘Sitting Up Straight’ is an album track from their debut I Should Coco and in fact this same demo was actually on disc 2 of the three-CD reissue of that album that was issued back in 2015. The video syncs the audio to grainy, early live footage of the band.

The Strange Ones 1994-2008 box set features all six albums on vinyl picture disc and on CD, along with four further CDs of live material, a two-CD set of remixes, B-sides and rarities and a final CD of unreleased demos, outtakes and ‘oddities’. That last disc is where you will find this demo. It’s called Roots & Vines and has been compiled by Mick Quinn & Gaz Coombes. There is still no further details on the track listings of the non-album CDs in this box set.

The Strange Ones 1994-2008 will be released on 24 January 2020.

Demos can often be an interesting listen, but this is so lo-fi and poorly recorded that it was almost too painful to hear all the way through. It sounds worse than Radio Luxembourg on Long Wave! If much of the rare material sounds like this, I’d want them to pay me £150!


No multi CD set yet (equivalent to the vinyl box) on Amazon. The link seems to be for a 1 CD version.


Has there been a full track listing published yet for the multi disk set? Would like to know exactly what the unheard material is. Can’t seem to find it anywhere.


There is duplication from the deluxe of the debut? Booooooo!

Seeing them on the reunion tour next year have ordered the single cd of the best of despite already owning supergrass is 10.


I am waiting for Amazon UK to reduce its price to something sensible, why is it so high compared to the other offers (other than Japan)? It will no doubt drop to a lower price than the others a day before or after its release as happened with the Origins of Muse set (I got mine for £103). I will enjoy looking at the LPs rather than listening to them but will enjoy the mass of music on the CDs. They were a fun band and it’s a fun looking box set.

Hi Rareglam,

I ordered the box set from Amazon Germany a couple months back and paid 123 Euros at the time. The price now is 150 Euros, but I often find I receive additional price discounts after adding to my cart, maybe that would be the case for you as well.

Never happened to me on Amazon and I’ve been ordering from them for nearly 20 years.
