"Some Other Sucker's Parade" is the fifth studio album by Del Amitri, released on June 24, 1997. It reached number 6 in the UK Albums Chart.


The album's recording was characterised by changes in personnel. Drummer Ashley Soan had joined the band soon after the release of "Twisted" (1995), and following their 1995 US tour the group parted company with guitarist David Cummings, who left to become a television scriptwriter. Jon McLoughlin was drafted in to replace him, and would co-write "Some Other Sucker's Parade"'s title track with Justin Currie. Both Soan and McLoughlin left soon after the album's recording.

Intended to communicate the band's live sound, the album deliberately used few studio effects in favour of a "raw" feel. "Absolutely as few overdubs as possible," confirmed Iain Harvie in an October 1997 interview with "Guitarist" magazine. [ [ Official Del Amitri website] , which cites interview with Iain Harvie and Justin Currie (title unknown) (October, 1997), "Guitarist" magazine.] "Probably about 80 per cent of the songs on this record don't have overdubs, apart from the vocals obviously, with all the harmonies, and maybe the guitar solo if there was a really dreadful mistake in the middle that we just couldn't live with. Wherever possible, we recorded with our live format of bass, drums, two guitars and keyboards for most of the songs."
