Info

Mavericks and survivors, James have sold +25 million albums, had 19 top 40 UK hits, toured with Neil Young, released the hugely successful 'Laid' (theme to the American Pie films) and rave-era anthem, 'Sit Down'

Formed in 1982 & signed to Factory in ‘83, they toured with The Smiths, who formed after James, with Morrissey calling them 'best band in the world.' Two years later they released Lenny Kaye-produced debut Stutter

In 1990 they became a septet with Mark Hunter (keyboard), Saul Davies (violin), Dave Baynton- Power (drums) & Andy Diagram (trumpet)

Catapulted into the mainstream in 1991 with 'Sit Down', the track became so ubiquitous they rationed playing it live, choosing to take risks and change setlists nightly.

With that success came Brian Eno, producing the next 5 albums, Laid, Wah Wah, Whiplash, Millionaires and Pleased to Meet You before a six-year band hiatus

They returned to form with 2008’s Hey Ma, followed by The Night Before & The Morning After, La Petite Mort, Girl at the End of the World and 2018’s Living in Extraordinary Times - all Top 10s, their gigs now selling out faster than in the 90s as a new audience rediscovered them

All The Colours Of You marks a new chapter for one of Britain’s enduring gems
