Uma banda powerpop na tradição de Raspberries e Big Star, a Velvet Crush formou-se em Rhode Island, EUA, em 1989, embora suas raízes, na verdade, provenham do oeste de Champaign, Illinois, EUA, onde o vocalista e  baixista Paul Chastain e o baterista Ric Menck se conheceram e começaram a se apresentar juntos. Lá, Menck fundou sua pequena mas própria gravadora, a Picture Book, pela qual ele e Chastain gravaram material solo, bem como singles, por trás de grupos de variadas denominações, como Springfields, Choo Choo Train, Paint Set e Bag O’Shells. A Picture Book também lançou discos da White Sisters, banda de Milwaukee, Wisconsin, EUA, liderada pelo guitarrista Jeffrey Borchardt, com quem Menck mantinha amizade. Quando Borchardt finalmente mudou-se para Providence, em Rhode Island, no ano de 1988, ele encorajou Menck e Chastain a acompanhá-lo; eles fizeram isso, e a Velvet Crush logo começou a realizar seus primeiros shows.

Em 1991, Matthew Sweet, um amigo de longa data, produziu o primeiro disco do grupo, "In The Presence Of Greatness"; um sucesso perante a imprensa musical britânica, o álbum granjeou à banda um contrato com a Creation, uma influente gravadora inglesa. Para a gravação de "Teenage Symphonies To God" (o título foi retirado da descrição de Brian Wilson para o idealizado som do lendário LP "Smile", dos Beach Boys), de 1994, a Velvet Crush recrutou o produtor Mitch Easter, conhecido por seu trabalho com a REM e como líder da Let's Active. Os membros do grupo também continuaram a trabalhar em projetos individuais, com Menck lançando a coleção solo "The Ballad Of Ric Menck", em 1996. O muito aguardado terceiro disco da Velvet Crush, "Heavy Changes", finalmente apareceu pelo próprio selo da banda, Action Musik, em 1998. Sem Borchardt, o grupo ressurgiu em 1999 com "Free Expression". "Rock Concert" foi lançado no outono de 2000 (nota minha: a banda ainda lançou "Soft Sounds", em 2002, e "Stereo Blues", em 2004) (Jason Ankeny, AllMusic; tradução livre do inglês).
