Ocean Colour Scene by Ocean Colour Scene

I first saw Ocean Colour Scene supporting Jesus Jones (along with Ned's Atomic Dustbin) and then again at ICA Rock Week, where I took a bunch of black and white photos. They also appeared on SnubTV, though I never thought they'd become as popular as they eventually did.

I spent a fair while searching for the original version of the song Sway several months after it was released, but I evidently missed the boat. The album was disappointing, attempting to ape some of the baggy and Madchester trends happening at the time. The band agreed.

Sway still sounds great though. And the album version turned out to be the same one they released as a single.

Perhaps they should've released a live version.
