    Default James

    I am stoked to see James. They have a lot of very catchy songs from their earlier albums. I wonder if there new songs are good. Nice to see them added, but I wish Coachella would give the Doves another chance after they cancelled some years back.

    I went from having never heard of James before to having them in my top 5 must see. So fucking happy Coachella brought them into my life.

    I remeber when the Poorman on KROQ analyzed the lyrics to "Laid" on an old Loveline episode.

    Saw them summer of 2010 at the House of Blues. A very solid show and the vocalist has a great voice and his yodeling is sick!

    They've sold 25 million records worldwide...I bet you they are the lowest billed artist ever on a line up with 25 million records sold.

    It must have been the House of Blues in Anaheim, as the House of Blues in West Hollywood NEVER books any Coachella type bands.

    Why does Anaheim get better shows than HOB West Hollywood? HOB West Hollywood seems to opnly book rap, R&B, death metal, hardcore punk and emo bands, and blues on Sunday. Almost as bad as the Whiskey, the kings of pay to play.

    I'm very excited about James. I've only just started listening to them when they had been confirmed via that radio interview. I had listened to that singles compilation a few times, but now I am getting into the actual albums. I am most excited about Pulp, Mazzy Star, and them, so I hope there is no conflict between the three. Also, Madness. Please.

    Ha! I knew there would be one mistake in there. I have only just heard of them last week. The other day my cousin and I were IMing and I typed fIREHOUSE. He made fun of me for wanting to see hair band Fire House. I can be such a flake.

    So I saw James in like 1992. Whatever year Laid came out. I liked the mesmerizing shit they were doing with Eno, like on "Sometimes".

    I had no idea they were an MTV darling and that they had some hit song that thousands of teenage girls loved. Never felt so out of place at a concert in my life.

    I was wondering if this was the same "James" from years back. I don't remember anything about the track MTV overplayed except that it bugged the shit out of me. Thanks to this thread, I'm somewhat curious. However, the bad taste in my mouth that still resonates from 20 years ago has caused me to type this rather than click a video.

    I was surprised to discover James has a double-cd best of. I guess one CD for each of their hits. It will be fun to check them out.

    "Sit Down"



    this seems less annoying now than it did 20 years ago.

    anyway check out Laid, which came a little later and was a lot more interesting.

    It's a very good compilation. At least, from where I stand, having not listened to James before. It certainly intrigued me and shot them up the priority list.

    But one thing I've noticed, according to setlist.fm, they play a lot of songs that aren't on the best of. It seems I'll have to dig into the albums in a more proper way, as well.

    From Seven through Millionaires – basically the whole of the 1990's – the band amassed a really, really deep catalog. I don't have much use for what came before or after (although their most recent stuff is surprisingly good, and they're still an exciting live act), but they had a decade-long run of terrific albums, most of which sounded nothing like "Laid." Try not to let that song or "Sit Down" dissuade you from checking them out.

    After a couple hiccups in the early 2000s, the last two albums (Hey Ma and The Morning After the Night Before) have been excellent. Folks who only know them from Laid need to check out Sometimes from the Laid album and Tomorrow from Whiplash. Tomorrow will having you pumped from now until Coachella.
