Music Groups - Verve, The

The Verve (originally Verve) were an English rock band formed in Wigan, Greater Manchester, in 1990, by vocalist Richard Ashcroft, guitarist Nick McCabe, bassist Simon Jones, and drummer Peter Salisbury. The members had met at Winstanley Sixth Form College. Simon Tong later became a member. Beginning with a psychedelic sound indebted to shoegazing and space rock, by the mid-1990s the band had released several EPs and two albums. They also endured name and lineup changes, breakups, health problems, drug abuse and various lawsuits. Filter referred to them as "one of the tightest knit, yet ultimately volatile bands in history".[1] The band's commercial breakthrough was the 1997 album Urban Hymns and its single "Bitter Sweet Symphony", which became a massive worldwide hit. Soon after this commercial peak, the band broke up in April 1999, citing internal conflicts. By then, The Verve had become one of the most influential English alternative rock acts in years.

Verve, The Comments (You must Login to Comment)

1 Their one hit was a song with a very annoying sample of an elevator version of an early Rolling Stones song. I wonder if they ever got confused with the Verve Pipe? -- Submitted By: (JayD) on August 2, 2012, 1:11 am - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 The Verve boned in 1999 when they broke up after their third album. The reunion album of 2008 was the merest echo of the band's former greatness; it told me they had long since said everything there was for them to say. Wisely, they appear to have called it quits yet again. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 28, 2011, 3:20 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
