JAMES GETS 'LAID' IN AUSTRALIA FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME
"This bed is on fire with passionate love, The neighbours complain about the noises above, But she only comes when she's on top...."
These memorable lines from James' 1993 hit 'Laid' defined a decade becoming the soundtrack to early 90s alternative radio and then finding a second life through its use in teen hit American Pie. Now the band are heading to Australia for the very first time in their career to celebrate the release of their fourteenth album 'Girl at the End of the World', presented by MJR. JAMES had already had a decade of hits by the time Laid arrived, having risen from Manchester's legendary Factory Records scene into one of the biggest UK bands in the world by the dawn of the 90s. With alternative hits in Australia including Laid, Sit Down, Sound, Getting Away With It (All Messed Up), She's a Star and Just Like Fred Astaire, the band were triple j staples for over fifteen years, yet never ventured downunder.... Until now.
James are visiting Australia this November for four special shows. After internal struggles kicked off a long hiatus in 2001, the band reconciled in 2007 and continued their prosperous career, getting back on the live trail. Their new album 'Girl at the End of the World' has become their most popular in over a decade, debuting at #2 in the UK charts (only behind Adele!). The accompanying live shows just finished across the UK have been the bands broadest ever tour, receiving rave reviews - "It's not hard to grasp the enduring appeal of James... With a hit album, a sellout tour and no sign of the tunes running out, James are, without a doubt, the indie rock dream made flesh" The Observer.
