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.

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. Some[who?] have contested this move as censorship which entirely misconstrues the tongue-in-cheek humour of the original.
