Ocean Colour Scene: Camden Electric Ballroom, London

Jim Irvin, MOJO, July 1996

OCEAN COLOUR SCENE have got booking the supports sussed. Liverpudlian veterans The Real People turn in a tuneful set. Good call. The DJ gets the teens going with Modtastic faves like 'I Can't Explain', 'Understanding' and 'Soul Finger'. Safe! Then the killer, temperature-upping stroke: OCS guitarist Steve Cradock appears and announces that two blokes want to play a few tunes. "Please welcome The Gallagher Brothers!"
