During their 24 years in the industry, Britpop legends Ocean Colour Scene have released nine albums, three of which went top five, have had several successful singles and toured with the likes of Oasis and Paul Weller. is an understatement.

2016 marked the 20th anniversary of their critically acclaimed and career defining album Moseley Shoals, which saw the band celebrate by playing the album in full at a series of epic shows across the UK.

Their up and coming support act, Gerry Cinnamon, also deserves some appreciation; a rising star from Castlemilk who has been making waves in the Scottish music industry over the last few years. If you haven’t had a chance to see him in action yet, he’s one to watch in 2017.

Ocean Colour Scene kicked off their set with an energetic cover of ‘Day Tripper’ by the Beatles, followed by the triumphant opening tracks from the Moseley Shoals album, ‘The Riverboat Song’, ‘The Day We Caught the Train’ and ‘The Circle.’

Nostalgic vibes were firmly in the air as the crowd mellowed for the slower tracks, confirming the limitless versatility of the band. Over the years, Ocean Colour Scene have generated fierce loyalty and an enviable bond with their fans, demonstrated as the crowd’s vocal chords were stretched to sing along with the classic tracks ‘Traveller’s Tune’ and ‘Profit in Peace.’

As always, they ended the show on a high with acoustic solo songs from Simon Fowler, ‘Robin Hood’ and ‘One-Hundred-Mile-High City,’ which were followed by rapturous applause.

One thing is for sure, the legendary band still sound as fresh today as they did in 1996 when Moseley Shoals was first released.
