Rent The Flat From ‘The Verve’ Video
Back in 1997 popular beat combo The Verve wrote themselves into rock history with their acclaimed third album, Urban Hymns.
It’s probably best know for the anthemic “Bitter Sweet Symphony” and the equally cheery “The Drugs Don’t Work” but Richard Ashcroft was obviously in a happier mood when he wrote “Lucky Man”, the third single …maybe the drugs had started to work by then?
Why am I telling you this? Because, music fans, you can now rent the amazing flat that featured in the “Lucky Man” video. It was designed by the Richard Rogers Partnership and is, apparently, a particularly fine example of the High Tech style.
High Tech, it seems, means big and shiny, lots of steel and glass, industrial pipes and girders and plenty of severe black chairs.
In the video Ashcroft rambles down that incredible staircase, strums his guitar, looks out the windows, and trys, without much success, to encourage the rest of the band to stop lounging around and pitch in. No wonder they kept splitting up.
Anyway, the tenant who moves in here will need to stump up £6,933 pcm for the privilege. Lucky indeed…
