Hey! I'm new here. My name's Sammy and I'm a sixteen year old Scot. I've loved the Verve for as long as I can remember and I've always liked Richard's solo stuff too. Went to see him a few weeks ago at the SECC and it was just amazing. He was so good! So now, I've taken a bit more interest in him and started getting involved in the Richardy goodness :D

I bring icons! I hope this isn't breaking any rules!

           

Enjoy, feel free to use, just comment and credit :D

He's Coming Back... [12 Oct 2005|11:17pm]

http://www.xfm.co.uk/Article.asp?id=130824

Richard Ashcroft has been speaking exclusively to Xfm Online about his
“raw” comeback record and 2006 headline shows, saying it’s his “duty to
write tunes”.


Returning in the coming months with the first material since 2002’s ‘Human
Conditions’, Richard Ashcroft gave Xfm an insight into the
currently-untitled record’s sound.

“It’s sounding shit hot,” the former Verve frontman explained. “I’m
pleased with it. It’s got a good mix to it: there’s some good raw rock ‘n’
roll on it, some moments of beauty and lushness, but there’re some tracks
that are pretty raw, pretty heavy."

“And I think, lyrically, for me it’s hitting the spot,” he continued.
“There’s a lot of different topics and things I’m going into, and for a
time I was thinking about that very English way of writing tunes back from
’65 and ’66. The Stones, The Beatles, [all the songs] have a bit of Dylan
twisted-ness in the sound, but they retain an Englishness to them.”

“That’s what I wanna be, a great English songwriter. I don’t want to be
anything else, I realise that now. That’s my job, that’s my duty, to write
tunes, not to f**k around.”

Ashscroft also revealed that while his past two solo albums have been
highly produced, lavish affairs, the new as-yet-untitled record (while
keeping some of the epic scale) will be a lot more rough sounding.

"There's still moments of beauty and lushness in there," he continued,
"But there's definitely some tracks there are pretty raw, pretty heavy
yeah."

And with the album set to hit stores in the coming months, naturally there
’re already plans afoot for the man to return with some special headline
live shows.

“I’ll be headlining my own shows in January, but keep your eyes out for
some very small low-key stuff and working up for a big gig in Wigan, or
somewhere in that region, in the summer.”

IGNORE THIS [04 Jul 2004|01:09am]

Hey. I'm new and fairly new
to livejournal. I don't know
when I first hear Lord Ashcroft,
as I humbly refer to him, but
I think it was at about four in
the morning when I lie awake and
I turned on my alarm clock/radio
and it went to this station that
I doubt still exists and the song
Science of Silence came on and I
just cried and cried and thought
how can someone make something
so inspiring and beautiful. That's
when my obsess launched.

Ha. Sorry for this post.
