Verve were the first English band of note since the Bunnymen to cultivate their own brand of northern psychedelia, though more likely fuelled by ecstasy than acid. Verve’s first album A Storm In Heaven captures a delirious moment conveyed by oneiric soundscapes, the invocation of shimmering celestial phantoms from the ashes of a deathstar. After this Verve changed their name to The Verve, a symbolic rebirth which saw them turn their focus to the pop charts.
