The VERVE--> Storm In Heaven.

Hi John,

Massive fan of your work and a warm welcome to GS. ( Radiohead, Ride, Muse etc.. which I am sure will be covered in threads of their own)

Im of the opinion that 'Storm' is the quintestential 'Verve' album from a band perspective.

Its so slow, murky, euphoric, ethereal, challenging and sounds like a new band just playing their music with a real 'Fark you' sort of attitude, purely as a function that they sounded so different to many other bands at the time. I like to think its the closest the 90's got the Neo-Psychedelia.

Whilst i know 'Sawmills' plays a big part in the tone.. as I feel a lot of other albums from there share that tone i guess I'm more interested in the production aspect.

What got you interested in them and how did you approach the production?

Was there much input from the band? As from what i have gathered speaking to people and from interviews the focus changed somewhat after that album with all the strife inside and out of the band.

Keen as Mustard Verve fan
