The Shining In-depth Biography

After the demise of the Verve} in 1999, founding bassist Simon Jones} resorted to hiding out in his London flat. Ex-Stone Roses} guitar man John Squire} botched that in 2000 when he called on Jones} to create some new material. Squire} was also reeling from the breakup of the Seahorses} and had an itch to make music. He, Jones}, and fellow Verve} guitarist Simon Tong} joined forces with drummer Mark Heaney} and vocalist Duncan Baxter} and tagged themselves the Shining} after the Stephen King} novel and the ultramodern Stanley Kubrick} film. The association with Squire} didn't exactly form as planned, so he and Jones} amicably split early on. Guitarist Dan MacBean} was added to the group and the Shining} developed a rough-edge pop} sound. Debut singles "Quicksilver"} and "Wonder How"} emerged in early 2002 as well as an American deal with Epic}. The band's studio full-length, entitled True Skies}, was scheduled for an early 2003 release. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, All Music Guide
