from band’s Myspace:

“The Black Ships is the new band by Verve’s guitarist Nick McCabe and bass player Simon Jones, together with electric violinist and arranger Davide Rossi and drummer Mig Schillace. Nick and Simon met Davide during the making of The Verve‘s last record Forth, where he helped with the string arrangements and some electric violin playing. They eventually joined on stage for some of their headlines at Glastonbury, V Festivals and Summercase, plus other appearances on TV and radio in the UK. After the Verve finished touring in August 2008, it was decided that something new should emerge from such a meeting. That took shape in November 2008 in Copenhagen, Denmark, where the band met for the first time to play and record new material straight away. It was then that Nick brought with him long time friend and collaborator Mig Schillace, to complete the rhythmic section and with it the core line-up of the band. ” Nothing can change the shape of things to come. Kraut, Kraut, baby.
