Gig Archive: 2010 - Ocean Colour Scene acoustic (Simon and Oscar) - Swindon, May 2010

Returning to see Ocean Colour Scene play live for the first time in ten years was a real treat. Except this wasn't the whole of OCS, this was an acoustic performance from Simon Fowler and Oscar Harrison in an intimate atmosphere, providing the crowd with a memorable night of musical excellence. As you can see from the videos below, they got the whole place singing, including me (yes that is my over-excited voice you can hear yelling along to 'Profit In Peace'), and the enthusiasm of the crowd is most evident on the mass singalong of 'The Day We Caught the Train', which can be viewed below.....

Simon and Oscar did upset certain members of the audience by agreeing to return to sign autographs and meet some of their loyal fans, but they made us wait for over half an hour before we found out they'd actually left the venue through the back door. On the upside I got my copy of 'Saturday' signed by the band's second guitarist Andy Bennett (who most people don't recognise because he only joined in 2005) but it would've still been nice for Simon and Oscar to stick to their word.....
