Supergrass - Alright

Is it me or am I hearing a lot of bbs references in this song. Guitar strumming very much like Don't worry baby's guitar break, lyrics somewhat like Mike Love's (It's Ok Vibe) & background vocals in the second verse is very much like 'You're so good to me'. Love to hear what you guys think.

Did a search for "Bochner" and nothing came up...very interesting snapshot of that brief moment when everything and anything seemed possible.

Well what do you know. It puts quite different light. In fact, it clarifies everything. Still doesn't justify "despicable". Thank you, valuable info.

Yes, zero intent to belittle Surfer. In the videos Surfer posted, he looks very young, like indeed teenager, with youthful voice. He genuinely looked to me cute & I said as much. Sth. about people with Down's syndrome is cute, to my eyes anyhow. That's really about it.
Bottom line: b4 hallucinating that ANYthing I say is *every*time bad, think that it could be, in fact, good.

An alternate lyric version with Brian singing "that holds me up" and "I found my way" on the refrains does still exist, because I've been lucky enough to hear it, but it definitely sounds like a rough mix. The vocals are dry and instead of fading the coda keeps going until it hits a dead stop. So something is still in the vaults, wherever it came from.

COMMENT to wjcerar:  Good, glad to hear something is still around. Nevertheless, it would be a ruff mix that I made very early in the song's beginnings. AND I've just forgotten about it. The song was in the works for months, but then left alone for a long time. In other words, it as in a finished form on the multi-track so no one paid attention to it, working on other songs. Then when it came time to properly mix it down . . .    ~swd

I would call this a bullet dodged, but I'm not certain this was the only tape, nor was this a release:  I was at Tandyn Almar's and he told me he had a box of audiotape of Brian doing a vocal with lyrics to "Passing By," developed after it was released without lyrics. He knew that I was an uber-fan who might take on putting the tape back together. I actually spent 2-3 days splicing the wad of tape to put back on the reel. It worked and I got to hear it. I was told by someone here that they had a copy of that tape. I have no idea if it came from the tape I spliced back together (have no idea what Tandyn did with it) or another copy. In any case, it was worth all the work just to hear it.

Wow, great story Deb. What I wouldn't give to hear THAT! Remember much about it in any way, shape or form?? I always wondered if there were, in fact, lyrics for that song. Were they Brian's or did Mike try to turn it into a surfing song?

COMMENT to The LEGENDARY OSD: I always prefered the original set of lyrics to the one Brian eventually came up with. Don't misunderstand, both are quite good, but given a choice . . .  ~swd

Thanks to Stephen "I was there" Desper . Will we ever hear these things?

As you are not a native English speaker it’s harsh for someone to call you “despicable” for calling someone with Down Syndrome “cute.”
Cute is not a word I use as an adult to describe good looking or nice guys. I did use that word as a teenager. When I use that word now it’s usually when discussing babies or animal behavior - “oh look at that little kitty playing with the ball. That’s so cute.”
Cute is not a “wrong” word per se, But I think the guy thought that by calling Surfer “cute” you were belittling him, being condescending towards him. I know that wasn’t your intention.
I’m answering on my phone as there isn’t any WiFi where I am tonight so it’s too difficult to read your entire post. I can read it tomorrow when the hotel we’re at will have WiFi so I can read on my tablet,

Yes, I dig the track -- dig the video too.  Shoulda been a hit.  One more thing -- I always felt a poignancy in Brian singing "I said it rescued me and it'll rescue you".  Sort  of a Higher Power tip of the cap to Brian being up and at 'em and not where he was.  Well for me anyway.
