  • James are an English rock band from Manchester.
  • They formed in 1981 and were active throughout the 80s, but most successful during the 90s. Their hit singles include "Sit Down" and "Laid".
  • Following the departure of lead singer Tim Booth in 2001, the band became inactive but reformed in January 2007, returning for a nationwide tour and a new album.
  • Laid was released in September 1993 to positive reviews. As well as being a success in the UK, the album also broke the band in the US, shipping over 600,000 copies and charting at #68, propelled by the immense popularity of its risqué title track on US student radio.
  • In March 1998, a greatest hits album, The Best Of, was released, compiling all the band’s hits since their signing to Fontana. The album reached #1 in the UK album charts and sell-out tours throughout the year followed.
