June 13 [12:00 EDT] -- The late Ronnie Lane will be honored with a tribute EP organized by Birmingham band Ocean Colour Scene and featuring Noel Gallagher, Paul Weller and Primal Scream.
The New Musical Express reports that Noel Gallagher joined OCS on a cover of Ronnie Lane's "The Poacher," and former Jam man Paul Weller contributed to Lane¹s "Done This One Before" and the Faces song "Debris." Primal Scream have also recorded a track according to the magazine.
Ocean Colour Scene bassist Damon Minchella said in an interview that they would be donating all the money to Lane's family. Minchella said they had planned on recording a tribute later this year anyway, but the death of the Small Faces/Faces co-founder from MS last week caused them to act on the project more quickly. No release details were available at press time.
