The Verve reuniting

The VerveOf all the brit pop bands to have gone away, The Verve were a great one, and a fitting one to reunite. “Silent since 1999, U.K. rock act the Verve is reuniting for a new album and fall live dates. According to a post on the group’s newly launched Web site, Richard Ashcroft, Nick McCabe, Simon Jones and Pete Salisbury were in a London studio last week laying down tracks for the album, which will be completed in the fall. […] It appears guitarist/keyboardist Simon Tong, who was last heard from in the Good, the Bad and the Queen, is sitting out the reunion.” I have all of their cds, but the only time I saw them live was a tour for their first cd, back in ‘94. At the time I think some in the band were only 19…great, great set though. That first cd takes me back to working in the art gallery, at a time where I was drinking too much (coffee and beer) while making no money, but having the time of my life seeing bands.
