I bring you good news friends, Ocean Colour Scene are touring!
You should remember these guys from the Moseley Shoals album that spawned the hit “The day we caught the train” and “Riverboat song” as well as featuring prominently in the Guy Richie produced 1998 movie “Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” with the song “Hundred Mile High City’. The movie is a personal favorite if you enjoy that mod-mobster type of movie.
Ocean Colour Scene was one of the very few bands that survived the britpop and post britpop backlash and continued to produce album after album.
Like their previous tour effort where they played Mosley Shoals tracks this time around they’ll be playing all the songs from the album “Marchin’ Already” released in 1997. I managed to see them on this tour at the Brixton Academy so i’m sure everyone who goes will have a blast. It was a great set list that night from a classic album.
The tour begins in Cardiff Nov 30 and all tickets are available for purchase by following this link. In addition to the dates listed below there are shows you can get to in August as well.
