Ocean Colour Scene : Crazy Lowdown Ways

Good to have you back fellas...

Ocean Colour Scene  :  Crazy Lowdown Ways

Alas poor Britpop, I knew thee well. Drinking warm beer with the bassist from
the Boo Radleys. Sharing dreams and philosophies with Alan from Shed Seven. Aah, there were times
when you almost believed Bonehead could play a solo.

A welcome
return then, for the much maligned 'Scene - the Stereophonics of their day - whose combination of insane mod bluster feels
like a thing of joy compared to their surly replacements.
This time around the lads widen their horizons by turning their attentions to
the Free songbook, rewriting 'My Brother Jake'
as part of their masterplan to dislodge the usurpers of their Bloke Rock crown.

Guitars howl wildly, distraught to be back in the arms of Steve
Cradock, England's reigning Windmilling champion. Good to have you
back fellas.
