Ocean Colour Scene
Ocean Colour Scene had the most success with their 1996 album Moseley Shoals. The album contained the band’s three biggest hits The Riverboat Song, The Day We Caught The Train and You’ve Got It Bad.
Spytunes has recorded one of Ocean Colour Scene’s B-sides Robin Hood, a song that has become a classic among their loyal fan base. Songs reaching the masses through underground demand like this are not as rare as you may first think.
It’s worth noting how songs that reach legendary status like this always have a very simple harmonic and melodic structure. The message is clear, the chords are simple. The lyrics are direct and all rhythmical patterns are always easy to follow.
After the huge success with the ’96 Moseley Shoals, OCS has released a new album every two years between 1997 and 2007.
The latest release from Ocean Colour Scene appeared in 2010. Named Saturday, it marked the 21st birthday of the band.
