Ocean Colour Scene – The Riverboat Song (1996)


My wife and I travelled through Moseley yesterday en route to Birmingham to see my daughter in a concert. I don’t know the area, save it being a hangout for artists and the inspiration for OCS’s second long player Moseley Shoals. The album’s opening track was ‘The Riverboat Song’ inspired by the river journey from Apocalypse Now and clearly the riff and all from Led Zeppelin’s ‘Four Sticks’. Have a great week.
