An iconic piece of Verve memorabilia: the Space Echo t-shirt – on sale for £14.99


You can now buy this wicked reissue of the 1997 classic designed by Brian Cannon at Microdot. The Verve ‘Space Echo’ image was originally applied to a t-shirt when the band reformed for the first time in 1997.

Simon Jones would often be seen wearing the garment and indeed sported it at the first gig on the comeback tour at the Sheffield Leadmill on the 9th August 1997.


The Space Echo itself was a piece of equipment used by Nick McCabe, the device records incoming audio to a loop of magnetic tape, then replays the audio over a series of several playback heads before it is erased again by new incoming audio.

The sticker on the front of the machine which reads ‘The creative answer – The Verve’ originally read ‘The creative answer – Roland’.

Each shirt is screen printed by hand in Wigan, Lancashire onto 100% cotton pre shrunk premium heavyweight garments.

It’s now on sale and available for purchase here.

Available as per the 1997 original in black only.
