One of the best Alternative Indie Rock bands of the ’90s!

The Verve was a British alternative rock band that formed in Wigan, Greater Manchester, in 1990. Among their bigger hits, you find Bitter Sweet Symphony, Lucky Man and The Drugs Don’t Work.

Since their full-length debut album, A Storm In Heaven, critics always favoured The Verve as one of the best British bands of the ’90s.

Alongside bands such as Radiohead, The Stone Roses, Happy Mondays, My Bloody Valentine, Primal Scream, The Charlatans, Blur, Oasis, and Elbow, the Verve was the soundtrack of the ’90s in the U.K.

Following ten years of success, various lawsuits, internal conflict, and plenty of drug/alcohol-fueled misadventures, the band broke up in 1999.

After The Verve dissolved, Ashcroft pursued a solo career but didn’t reach the same heights as the band had with their best album, Urban Hymns.

In 2007, when they reunited, all seemed to fall into place again. When tickets for the tour became available, they sold out in twenty minutes.

As late as 2021, Richard is back with a new album. But instead of recording new songs or releasing the greatest hits, he’s re-recorded his best songs in a collection dubbed Acoustic Hymns Vol 1.

On the song C’mon People (We’re Making It Now), he’s teamed up with former Oasis frontman and close friend, Liam Gallagher.
