'Urban Hymns' shouldn't have happened, not really.
The Verve split after their second album, drained by continual pressure and self-medication.
But then the gravitational forces that first pulled them together took hold once more, bringing the band back into contact.
What happened next has gone down in the history books, with The Verve's 'Urban Hymns' becoming a defining British rock record.
Chris Floyd accompanied the band during that tumultuous period, a photographer keen to document one of the most exciting young groups in the country.
A new book gathers the bulk of these photographs in one place, a lavish tribute to a unique moment in British music history.
Clash has obtained a copy of this beautifully pieced together tome, signed by Chris Floyd.
