The Verve & Goldfrapp Rockers Team Up For New Band

Rockers from British bands THE VERVE and GOLDFRAPP have joined forces to form a new music group.
The Verve's Nick MCCabe and Simon Jones are rocking out with Goldfrapp violinist Davide Rossi after forming The Black Ships.
The musicians have recorded their first track, Black Ships On Auto, which is available for download via social networking website Myspace.com.
Rossi writes on the site's blog, "After The Verve finished touring in August 2008, it was decided that something new should emerge... 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.
"Since then the boys have been and are still working on it! It's a slow process, which needs the care and time that it needs, but music fans out there should expect some teasers real soon!"
The band has yet to announce a schedule of live performances or recording plans.
