Hurricane #1 were an English indie rock band, formed in Oxford in 1996. The band were formed by former Ride guitarist Andy Bell, along with vocalist / guitarist Alex Lowe, bassist Will Pepper and drummer Gareth Farmer.

Signed to Creation Records (along with fellow bands such as Oasis, The Jesus and Mary Chain and Primal Scream) they released their debut album in 1997, entitled Hurricane #1. This included their first single, "Step Into My World", which reached number 29 in the UK Singles Chart (and a remix of which reached number 19 in 1997),[1] and other less successful singles "Just Another Illusion" and "Chain Reaction".

In 1999, follow-up album Only The Strongest Will Survive spawned the band's other highest charting single, also called "Only the Strongest Will Survive". The song reached number 19 in 1998.[1]

Bell quit the band in 1999 to become the new guitar player for Gay Dad. Shortly after joining Gay Dad, Bell split from the band to become the bass player for Oasis. In 2004, a double disc compilation of their songs was released, entitled Step Into My World.

Former Hurricane #1 vocalist / guitarist, Lowe has pursued a solo career, and has released three albums to date. In 2007, Lowe announced a new project called Garage Flowers, and a single, "Where To Begin", was released via iTunes.
