Simon Fowler (Ocean Colour Scene)

‘One For The Road’

In conversation with Daniel Rachel, audience Q&A and acoustic set.


Discussing his extraordinary book, One For The Road, Simon Fowler recounts his life and songwriting through the prism of 69 songs from all stages of his career, from the first song he wrote when he was sixteen, through his formative groups, The Great Betrayal and The Fanatics, to Ocean Colour Scene and their multi-platinum selling albums in the mid-nineties. Revealing a panoply of disparate influences from William Yeats and Cole Porter to David Bowie, Lou Reed and Neil Young, the book reveals the stories behind the songs, the people and the places that inspired them and how Simon feels about them now.

Following the discovery of a cassette tape recorded in 1986 featuring over 20 previously unreleased songs, including a handful later recorded by Ocean Colour Scene, Simon will play a selection of these songs in public for the first time.

Simon will be joined by his lifelong friend, Daniel Rachel. Having grown-up three doors apart, Daniel lived with Simon through the heyday of the nineties and witnessed first-hand the writing of the multi-platinum selling Moseley Shoals. Discussing their adventures from forming bands in the eighties to the Cool Britannia revelry of the nineties, An Evening with Simon Fowler promises to be a unique and heartfelt journey into fame, friendship and era-defining music.


Daniel Rachel is a musician turned bestselling author, and winner of the Penderyn Music Book Prize for the best music of the year. His previous books include Isle of Noises, Walls Come Tumbling Down, Don’t Look Back in Anger and Like Some Forgotten Dream, as well as the co-authored books When Ziggy Played the Marquee (with Terry O’Neil), I Just Can’t Stop It (with Ranking Roger) and Oasis: Knebworth (with Jill Furmanovsky).
