Nick McCabe & Peter Salisbury reunite at Kendal Calling Festival 2017

Kendal Calling festival saw members of The Verve and The Charlatans play at Tim Burgess' Tim Peaks area.

The Verve's lead guitarist, Nick McCabe and drummer Pete Salisbury performed together for the first time in almost 10 years, with help from Charlatans bassist Martin Blunt.

They played Funkadelic classic "Super Stupid," alongside instrumentals of classic Verve tracks at the festival.

Also joined by 90s soul singer, Denise Johnson - who is credited with appearing on Primal Scream's Screamadelica - the musicians performed a rousing rendition of The Verve's Rolling People.

Meanwhile, former Verve frontman Richard Ashcroft has been just as busy this summer, touring his These People album and treating fans to a career-spanning set.
