    im still right. the strings make the song what it is. if you disagree, i pity you.

    I think coolguy would be a lot cooler if he used some critical thinking and reading comprehension skills.

    http://www.theverveonline.com/videos.html has an incredible collection of Verve footage, everything from concerts (1992 - 2007) to TV appearances. This is great place for newbies to start. At least 30 live tracks.

    Here's a live video of Rolling People from their 1997 US Tour: http://youtube.com/watch?v=5SM8jxP2s7w&feature=related

    Part of the fun of Coachella is checking out bands that you've heard of but don't know everything about.

    I would suggest to people who don't know much about The Verve beyond "Bittersweet Symphony" that they at least try and catch some of their set. They are *amazing* live. And if you want to do some listening beforehand, "A Northern Soul" is a good place to start - it's halfway between their earlier spacey sound and later more straightforward rock (I hate to say "pop") stuff.

We could all watch the clouds and drink vitamin water while listening to the soothing cool music of JJ! What were you thinking. Verve? That music is too mellow for me. Coachella needs a badass.

    The Verve are genius, but not Brit-pop.

    Urban Hymns is one of my favorite albums of all time. Genius. But it may go over the heads of pop "top 40" listeners...but those sorts might still be snuggling a fake eyelash from the Spice Girls Reunion tour...

    The Verve are incredibly well-suited to turning in an absolutely epic performance in that setting. I saw them in 1993 and 1997, and there's no place I'd rather get the opportunity to see them once again than Coachella.

    Ashcroft in full-on Captain Rock mode, McCabe sounding like he's got ten guitars going at once, and one of the great underrated rhythm sections in rock - Can't wait!

    A few songs I'm hoping for on Friday...


    "And if someone hears me scream, put it in a letter to me..."


    "To me you're like a setting sun, you shine then you're gone..."


    "In the dirty half-light where time means nothing at all..."


    "I wanted to tell you my story, how my life seemed to change in a matter of days..."


    "Been circling round for 20 years, and in that time I've seen all the fires and all the liars..."


    "I was thinking maybe we could go outside, let the night sky cool your foolish pride...Don't you feel alive, these are your times and our highs..."



    "This is a big FUCK YOU!!! COME ON!!!"
