[old interview] The Skinny on Art, Fame and Nike Ads

2016-3-3 22:18:56 阅读114 评论0 32016/03 Mar3

Background note: Favorite band of the ’90s. First ever cover story. A little lengthy, but I think it still holds up (does any music mag run 5000-word features these days?). Classic cover photo and interior shots by the incomparable Ms. Heidie Lee Locke. Still love this group.

“For me to sit here and analyze my whole fuckin’ life is just… I made a great record; I don’t need a lot of fuckin’ shrinks with tape recorders. Do you know what I mean?”

He’s not here to have his head examined, but under different circumstances, the man at the window might seem paranoid. He speaks of clearing up “misinformation.” He describes himself as a voyeur who’s become the spectacle. He senses people

[old interview]Still crazy

2016-3-3 21:32:47 阅读143 评论0 32016/03 Mar3

When the Verve imploded, Richard Ashcroft - icon of rock'n'roll madness - found himself working with the only artist he wanted to share the spotlight with. He has finally produced an album to match his ego. Interview by Craig McLean

There is a classic photograph of Richard Ashcroft. It was taken in Kansas City in the summer of 1994. His band, the Verve, were taking part in Lollapalooza, a huge, extravagant touring festival. The Verve – four dissolute Wigan upstarts in their early twenties playing incendiary rock – became legendary for their ability to outdrink and out-party all the other bands.

Ashcroft was at it all night, whooping it up with the roadies and drivers. The singer

Richard Ashcroft: A Legend Returns - The Full NME Cover Interview

2016-2-27 9:51:57 阅读228 评论0 272016/02 Feb27

The shamanic Richard Ashcroft fronted one of the most iconic – and successful – bands of the ’90s, The Verve. Then he went solo, then disappeared. After six years in the wilderness he’s back – and he’s pumped, finds Mark Beaumont.

When rock stars disappear into their wilderness period, they might barricade themselves in remote drug shacks, suffer breakdowns in expensive celebrity rehabs or backpack around the world saving endangered mealworms. But few go as off-grid as Richard Ashcroft.

“I didn’t have a mobile phone for four years,” says the conductor of ‘Bittersweet Symphony’, choirmaster of The Verve’s 10 million-selling ‘Urban Hymns’ and rock’s eternal cosmic question mark. “I’d

Youth On Urban Hymns

2016-2-24 11:08:28 阅读91 评论0 242016/02 Feb24

The producer and Killing Joke bassist has produced everyone from Alien Sex Fiend to Bananarama. He recently gave an interview and talked about his time when he worked on Urban Hymns:

"There’s something very wonderful about being part of a band’s adventure as they break through. I don’t know what happened to Richard Ashcroft just before Urban Hymns: the band had been this very jamming, psychedelic act on the gigging circuit for two albums – then the songs seemed to just come to him from above, absolutely perfectly formed, with the knowledge of how to sing them. Recording his vocal was probably the easiest I’ve ever done, but the challenge then was to make the music and production reach

Why We Need The Brilliant Richard Ashcroft Back In The Game

2016-2-24 10:44:29 阅读89 评论0 242016/02 Feb24

The last time we saw Richard Ashcroft, the former Verve frontman was touting his rock-soul collective United Nations of Sound. After four solo records, the once-indefatigable Ashcroft looked and sounded defeated, like a boxer who'd gone one too many rounds. After, he more or less disappeared from view, playing only a handful of low-key acoustic shows and releasing no new material for the next six years. It was, to say the least, an ignoble note for an artist as talented as Ashcroft to disappear on.

That exile officially ended yesterday with 'This is How it Feels', the first single from surprise new album 'These People', and a tantalising return to form for one of British rock's most mercurial

'These People' - the former Verve frontman's fourth solo LP - isn't out until May 20, but we're already excited about Ashcroft's first album since 2010's 'United Nations Of Sound', which tackles topics such as the war in Syria and the Arab Spring uprisings.

Richard Ashcroft has been part of the British musical landscape for almost a quarter of a century, and after six years of silence, it's more than good to have him back. Here's a quick timeline of his biggest moments. Welcome back, Dickie.
