Supergrass: More Cock Than Doodle-Do

David Bennun, Everett True, New Musical Express, 10 February 1995

Oxford's SUPERGRASS put the POP! into apoplexy and inject hyper-charged glam into the Nineties Brit guitar thrill. Plus! Their second single — and first hit — 'Mansize Rooster' is the most obscenely catchy teenage anthem since 'House Of Fun' or 'Ballroom Blitz'. DAVID BENNUN and EVERETT TRUE get very excited (and very drunk) with the youngest, prettiest, sexiest, cheekiest, finest new band since, since… Menswear.
