The Verve were formed in Wigan in 1990, releasing their debut album “A Storm In Heaven” three years later. It was followed by the hugely acclaimed “A Nothern Soul” in 1995. In the summer of 1997, The Verve established themselves as one of the most crucial English rock bands of all time with the release of “Urban Hyms”, a worldwide success containing the landmark singles “Bittersweet Symphony”, “The Drugs Don’t Work” and “Lucky Man”.
