James

Profile:
Formed in Manchester in 1982 by Jim Glennie, Tim Booth, Larry Gott and Gavan Whelan. Signing, a year later, to Anthony H. Wilson's Factory label, before being snapped up by the Sire Records Company. Their folksy/indie sound found early cult status, before they became big chart toppers. Well almost, 'Sit Down' reached no. 2 in the UK singles charts, quickly followed by a no. 2 album, 'Seven'. The band split up in 2001, before re-forming some years later.

Seven is a masterpieces of gritty, intelligent British alt rock replete with grooves, horns and brilliant evocative lyrics. The music is intense without being overly preachy and alternative enough not to be sh*t like Nirvana which I cannot stand. They where leagues more talented as far as alt rockers of the 90s where concerned.

Tim Booths project with Angelo Badalamenti is also something of worth titled "Booth and the Bad Angel". I think James hit a pinnacle with Seven Born of Frustration is a real high energy number. I miss the 90s!
