Ocean Colour Scene have a truly devoted following.

Their rip-roaring live shows have long been one of the most extraordinary sights in modern rock - communal outpourings of hope and joy which boast the most life-affirming sing-a-longs you’ll ever hear.

However, their upcoming tour promises to be their most emotionally charged yet, as it marks 30 years since the release of the band’s debut single, ‘Sway’.

“I remember thinking back then that we were in it for the long haul, purely because we didn’t have a plan to do anything else,” says the band’s singer Simon Fowler. “Of course, we had no idea that we’d still be here thirty years later!”

OCS remain one of the most successful -and most loved- bands of the modern era. Having spent six years fine-tuning their sound, they lit up the Britpop party, chalking up three Top 5 albums- 1996’s Moseley Shoals, 1997’s Marchin’ Already and 1999’s One From The Modern and a run of nine successive Top 20 single’s including the immortal ‘The Riverboat Song’ (in total they have seventeen Top 40 singles and six Top Ten singles).

In the years since they’ve honed their craft in the spirit of the soul, folk and blues greats who inspired them- returning the favour in 2018 when they took Martha Reeves and The Vandellas out on tour. “We couldn’t quite believe that Martha Reeves was supporting us, it seemed absurd,” says Simon. “But our crowd loved it, she went down really well.”

While 2019 saw the band only play a handful of festivals and a low-key six date tour of Scotland (“We wanted to do something a bit different- go back to being The Beatles”) the tour dates in 2020 will see them back in their element- reaffirming a kinetic bond with their audience which grows stronger with each passing year.

“It’s great playing live these days because the mums and dads are at the back and their kids are down the front singing all the words,” says Simon with a smile. “We can’t wait to get back out there.”

Buckle up, it’s going to be quite a ride.

Ocean Colour Scene tickets are now available.

Artist Bio

Mod revivalist indie band Ocean Colour Scene can boast an impressive ten studio albums. The band are currently enjoying the twentieth anniversary of their huge hit album Mosely Shoals.

Ocean Colour Scene currently include drummer Oscar Harrison, ace guitarist Steve Craddock, lead vocals from Simon Fowler and they are joined by Raymond Meade.

Their beginning was somewhat of a false start, as they signed to indie label Phfftt Records in 1990 after they heard the EP Suburban Love Songs. The band recorded their eponymously titled debut album but were dismayed after the label forced a remix deemed to sound more like the emerging Manchester sound resulting in a confused finished product that failed to make any impact. They soon found themselves back on the dole and continuing to write music without any means to release it to a wider audience.

Relief came when they were invited by Paul Weller to play support at a number of his dates. The prominent gigs combined with the rise of Britpop created renewed label interest in the band who then signed to MCA Records. They then released their best known album Moseley Shoals in 1996 which hit #2 and continued to stay in the UK Charts for 92 weeks. The definitive nineties album featured the tracks The Day We Caught The Train and The Riverboat Song which came to be used whenever a guest would arrive on cult show TFI Friday. The follow up album Marchin’ Already topped the charts at #1 and even displaced Oasis album Be Here Now in 1997.

Their further studio albums include One From The Modern, Mechanical Wonder, North Atlantic Drift, A Hyperactive Workout For The Flying Squad, On The Leyline, Saturday and Painting.
