The Verve EP (1992)

The first studio release from The Verve (way before Richard Ashcroft went solo, started sampling Curtis Mayfield, and volunteering at youth centers in a drunken haze) was the self-titled EP in 1992 (on Hut Records). It’s a swirly, ethereal bit of Brit-rock shoegaze history.

There are five songs on this EP, which clocks in at a lengthy 31 minutes (thanks to songs like the ten-minute opus “Feel”). Four of the 5 songs were never re-recorded or released on any Verve album. It’s a must-have for Verve completists, or for those of us who could use some spacey psychedelic music every now and then.

Gravity Grave – The Verve

A Man Called Sun – The Verve

She’s A Superstar – The Verve

Endless Life – The Verve

Feel – The Verve

  • Oh brilliant! I have these on vinyl, so thank you! Great as the Urban Hymns era stuff is, I just always perferred the stuff on the first few singles up to and including the A Storm in Heaven album.

    I always look forward to checking out this blog, give mine a look if you haven’t already! Ed

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
