James - the comeback

Tim Booth and band 'James' are set to play a small spring tour in England.

Tim Booth : "I don't really know. If you had asked me in the summer would James get back together I would have said absolutely not, not a chance. It was a load of synchronistic events that took place over about a month. I was in Manchester where I bumped into former James guitarist Larry Gott (who left James in 1993) and founding bassist Jimmy Glennie. I found myself in a room with instruments and microphones and we just started jamming. It was really fantastic, so we said 'Alright, let's see how this goes.' We didn't tell anyone, we didn't even tell our manager. But it went so well musically that we felt we had to see how far it could go."

Since James spilt up a few years ago Tim Booth have released Bone - a brilliant solo album and been casted as evil pervert 'Zsasz' in the film Batman Begins, and as all-time super sinner Judas, in some mad Manchester theatre event. No news on Booth and the Bad Angel.

Parlophone have aparently paid £1 million to sign former Libertines frontman Peter Doherty and his band Babyshambles.

Kevin McCabe (Parlophone) : "It's true that Pete and Babyshambles have been given the record deal - I can't confirm the specific details as to whether it's a three album deal, but he has signed."

Miles Leonard (Parlophone) : “We’re extremely pleased to be welcoming such a vibrant and talented band into the Parlophone label. Babyshambles, justifiably, have a great reputation for crafting some of the most exciting music around today, and in Peter Doherty they have one of the best songwriters of his generation. Parlophone have a long history of working with the best British bands, from Radiohead to Blur to Coldplay, and we see Babyshambles very much as continuing this tradition.”
