- LIVERPOOL OCEAN COLOURED
- (Simon Fowler)
and Report By Domanic Bonner
THE rather timely concurrence with the Liverpool clipper returning home and the arrival of Simon Fowler's 4-piece outfit proved an ocean of colour for their umpteenth Liverpool gig.
Opening to a packed house with 'Oh Collector', the atmosphere grew with greater intensity as beckoning fans stood impatiently before for the band's mid-evening arrival and proved to be a great opener to assuage the frenzy.
North Atlantic drift and the many songs from the album were obviously evident and a good base to show a solid and exciting performance that showed particular solidity during 'Traveller's tune', 'Hundred mile high city' and an inspiring oldie - 'The day we caught the train', which saw a consumed audience.
The predominating Madchester attire of many of the fans looked like a blast from the past of the mid nineties. Nevertheless, flying beer bottles and the occasional soaking from beer-rain -especially during 'Hundred Mile High city, which teamed plastic pints from fanatical fans saw a very entertaining gig and a horde screaming way past the finale for more from a band that hailed the pride of Merseyside.
