* ''Ichabod & I'' (1990) - limited-run debut, dismissed by the band as an LP of DinosaurJr rip-offs but not without its fans

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: ''Ichabod & I'' had one official release, vinyl-only, 500 copies. The band seemed to regard it as OldShame though one track, "Catweazle", was eventually included on the career-spanning ''Find The Way Out'' compilation.

* ExecutiveMeddling: Carr admits that this usually made their records stronger, and that he regrets the times he resisted it (such as when he insisted on "Free Huey" as the lead single from ''Kingsize'' when Alan [=McGee=] wanted... anything ''but'' "Free Huey", basically).

* CreatorBacklash: Carr and Sice both reckon fan favourite "I Hang Suspended" was mere AlbumFiller. Their commentaries on the ''Giant Steps'' reissue website also reveal a shared dislike of "Spun Around", while Carr says "'One Is For' is shite."

* ChorusOnlySong: "Wake Up Boo!", leading to the misconception that it's about spring or summer even though the verses make it quite clear it isn't (the very first line is "Summer's gone").

!Tropes in evidence:

* BlackSheepHit: "Wake Up Boo!" is uncharacteristically jolly, and the parent album ''Wake Up!'' (a number one and easily their biggest seller) gets very little love these days.
