An American released EP from the Verve before they sold out & became mainstream, this brings together 2 of the band's early pre-album singles and their corresponding B-sides. Gravity Grave is a groove-worked piece of ambience, She's A Superstar a sprawl of Nick McCabe's whirring psychedelic guitar landscape,(accompanied with its unedited B-side Feel), both of these have been edited to bite-size proportions for those who find the originals too self-indulgent. A Man Called Sun and Endless Life only serve to prove that the Verve's ideas and soundscapes from the early Nineties stretch far beyond the "safety" and mainstream narrow-mindedness of the vastly overrated Urban Hymns. Indeed it has been quoted in the band biography Star Sail that the Richard Ashcroft of 1992 would never have dreamed of writing daytime radio friendly fodder such as Sonnet, this EP just goes to prove how deeply underground & far-out (the)Verve were. I definitely recommend this, A Storm In Heaven and the later A Northern Soul, listen to the band's back catalogue & you'll find songs (& experiences) far more rewarding than the overplayed Bitter Sweet Symphony.
