A Hyperactive Workout for the Flying Squad is the seventh album by Ocean Colour Scene (OCS); Hyperactive Workout was originally due to be released in September 2004 but Sanctuary Records requested the band record a live album instead and pushed the release back to 'early 2005' (the album finally arrived on 21 March). The album was produced by Dave Eringa who has previously worked with Manic Street Preachers, Idlewild and Massive Attack amongst others. The album was recorded at a hunting lodge near Kirriemuir, Scotland. The album's unusual title was a phrase the band heard on BBC Radio 4 and decided they liked. Critical reception to the album generally agreed that the album would please OCS fans, although the album charted lower than previous albums at number 30 in the UK album chart compared to number 14 for the previous album North Atlantic Drift. A Hyperactive Workout for the Flying Squad was also the first studio album not to feature the band's original bass player, Damon Minchella, who left the band in 2003.
