Biography

Velvet Crush is a power pop band from Rhode Island that achieved prominence in indie-rock circles in the early and mid-1990s. The band broke up in 1996 but re-formed in 1998 and has continued to record, releasing their most recent album in 2004.

Vocalist/bassist Paul Chastain and drummer Ric Menck are the band’s core members, and they share singing and songwriting duties. Guitarist Jeffrey Borchardt played on the band’s first two albums which were produced by Matthew Sweet and Mitch Easter respectively.

    I saw Chastain and Menck touring in the US in October, as part of the backing band for the mighty Matthew Sweet. Just amazing. I want Ric to play on my records; can't think of a drummer I'd want more!

    Teenage Symphonies To God does exactly what it says on the tin. Pop classic of the 90's.
