Biography

Before they started The Verve, Richard Ashcroft, Simon Jones, Nick McCabe and Peter Salisbury used to gather in an old car, high above the hillsides around Wigan, gazing down over the town and wondering how they could avoid the anonymity that destiny seemed to be presenting them with. Their solution was to form a band, but even the wild-eyed dreamers couldn’t possibly have guessed just ... Read more in Amazon's The Verve Store

Format: Audio CD
This is gorgeous 'Verve' (from 1992 not the re-release in 2004 under the evolved name 'The Verve') pre-commercial 'success' back when they were rightfully beloved all the more by the devoted few. The album cover intimates exactly what's to come, Dali-esque dramatism, mystic and solitude. On 'Gravity Grave(extended version)', the heady mix of incessant backbeat disintegrating, awash with McCabe's typically lush soundscape of their early period and the mesmerising "to me you're like the setting sun" vocal (before Ashcroft's ebullient later years) combine to pull the listener in to make you do just that - listen. The additional tracks, 'Endless Life' and the two live tracks are hardly classics in their own right but nonetheless cluster jewels to hold the greater magic of the title diamond aloft. This is music to drive by night or winter light to, over great distance, towards the one you love. You will get there, she'll be waiting and oh so happy to see you. Glorious.

(Check out 1993's full-length album debut 'A Storm in Heaven', if you haven't already, if you like this....well, let's just say it gets even better.)

I heard this coming over the sound system in a pub one wet afternoon in Cornwall. I was having a solitary pint and feeling somewhat despondent when this beautiful music came on and lifted my spirits. The melancholy feel and words of the song seemed to match my mood and yet, as I listened, I started to find it uplifting, and my mood was transformed. I was already familiar with 'A Storm in Heaven'; this is along the same lines, but really special. Ashcroft's wistful melancholic singing, the psychedelic echoey shoegazey guitar, and ethereal plaintive flute-playing - really great stuff. The cover art work is great too, and what with the sound of the sea at the beginning, the words about his life being a boat etc., and the knowledge that Verve recorded 'Storm' at the Sawmill Studios in Cornwall it felt like a Cornish thing for me. The other tracks are good too, such as 'A Man Called Sun' - more sun imagery. Highly reccomended.

fascinating retro-driven pop 17 Aug. 2000
By aaron - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
on this record the verve sound an awful lot like a looser, funkier version of barret-era pink floyd. each of the songs is a little gem save for 'endless life' goes precisely nowhere. the shorter version of the title track on the group's eponymous EP is probably more satisfying, but the other numbers are exciting ('man called sun' is a vast improvement over the studio version).
