Retro Saturday: Hurricane #1

Hurricane #1 was a band from the post-Oasis Britpop era, formed by ex-Ride guitarist Andy Bell, who later (ironically) joined Oasis of course. I wasn't really familiar with much of their music although they had a couple of songs which made the UK top 30 - "Step Into My World" and "Only The Strongest Will Survive" but my favourite Hurricane #1 song was the less successful "Just Another Illusion" which had a nice Charlatans-type vibe to it and built up over its 5 minutes 40 seconds into a major forgotten classic record IMHO.

No video for this one, but just enjoy the audio anyway at
