Disgraceful was Dubstar's debut album. It was released in October 1995 on the Food Records label, a division of EMI that was also home to Blur.

The album features two covers; "Not So Manic Now" which was originally recorded by Brick Supply on their 1994 EP Somebody's Intermezzo, and "St. Swithin's Day" which was originally recorded by Billy Bragg on his 1984 album Brewing Up with Billy Bragg.

Artwork censorship[edit]

Disgraceful's cover underwent a revision after some time on general release. The original cover—pictured here—contained a furry blue pencil case with a balloon inside, creating a somewhat labia-like effect. This was later revised to the current, slightly less blatant bunny slipper design.
