The Birmingham band’s story is already the stuff of legend: a rip-roaring rock’n’folk odyssey set to a backdrop of 21 years of UK pop culture at its very best. In this 23-year existence, Ocean Colour Scene have notched up nine albums, three of which went Top 5 – 1996’s Moseley Shoals, 1997’s Marchin’ Already and 1999’s One From The Modern – and a run of nine successive Top 20 hit singles commencing with 1996’s The Riverboat Song. They supported Oasis at their massive Knebworth shows that same year, and two years later helmed the biggest arena tour of any UK band to date. Their achievements have been nothing short of phenomenal.


The Fratellis are back, toting a vibrant, typically tune-rich new album, Eyes Wide, Tongue Tied. They’re also back from a year-long tour. Another one. Nine years on from the release of debut album Costello Music… eight years on from winning the Brit Award for Best British Breakthrough Act… Seven years on from Costello Music finally exiting the Top 100 after 83 weeks in the charts… Six years on from recording second album Here We Stand in their own freshly-purchased Glasgow studio… Three years on from returning after a break in which frontman Jon Fratelli released two side-project albums (one under the name Codeine Velvet Club, one a solo joint) and releasing third album We Need Medicine… and zero years on from the last time ‘Chelsea Dagger’ was lustily sung by the crowd at a sports event somewhere in the world (as global event-sized anthems go, only The White Stripes’ ‘Seven Nation Army’ rivals the ongoing ubiquity of the The Fratellis’ deathless 2006 Top Ten single)… … after all that, the trio spent much of 2013 and 2014 gigging internationally. The momentum, again, still, was with Jon (vocals/guitar/piano), Barry (bass) and Mince Fratelli (drums).
