Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

"Fuzz" is slang for "Police," and this song is about an incident when lead singer Gaz Coombes was caught in possession of cannabis - he was 15 at the time. Coombes recalled to The Observer May 6, 2012 that he was in an old Ford Fiesta with a headlight out when he got pulled over. "I stuck the hash down my pants," he said, "but I had it in a little metal tin. I was standing on the pavement, and the tin just went all the way down my trousers and landed on the pavement with a ting. The copper went, 'What's that, son?'"
One member of the band Presidents Of The United States Of America said, "This song is exactly what being a teenager sounds like." (thanks, jacob - waterford, CT)
I Should Coco was the biggest-selling debut album on the Parlophone label since the Beatles.

Blow is slang for cocaine (as it is often snorted), but Gaz was caught with a prescription drug, not cannabis. According to wikipedia at least.
Great song!

Isn't there a line:
"Who sold you the blow?
Well it was, no one I know"
Is it marijuana or cocaine? Or did I misunderstand the lyric?
