James Biography (Wikipedia)
James is an English rock band from Manchester, which was formed in 1982 and enjoyed popularity throughout the 1990s. The band's best-known singles include "Come Home", "Sit Down", "She's a Star" and "Laid", which also became a hit on American college radio.
Following the departure of lead singer Tim Booth in 2001, the band became inactive, but reunited in January 2007 and has gone on to produce a further three albums, cementing their reputation as one of the most iconic live British bands. James's hit single Come Home was voted the greatest ever Manchester anthem in a radio poll. Live performance has continually remained a central part of the band's output.
As of 2010, the band had sold more than 25 million albums worldwide and are regarded as one of the most influential non credited pioneers of the Manchester music scene, having had bands The Stone Roses and Happy Mondays as support acts during the 1980s.
