Bloody Aus is the boondocks arse end of the world. Next thread I'll say we're miles ahead, but with James we're still stuck on Laaaaaaaaaaid, which is an awesome song. I have the single somewhere

Kills me every time

Carrieluvv....a very merry christmas to you and yours! Born of Frustration is indeed one of theirs. If you can, find a track called 'Just Like Fred Astaire' from the 'Millionaires' CD. My favourite track of James. x

'Laid' is the only popular one in the US and think that is primarily due to American Pie.

Yep, they've split up. They did release a live CD and DVD of their last concert together as well as another greatest hits.

James-->Eno-->U2 connection...

hence why i fell in love with 'em...
Seven is a great album....
Laid... also great, only one that got exposure here in the US...
Whiplash... DAMN! Was happy to see some tracks from the Wah Wah release brought to term here especially 'Tomorrow'...

Sadly missed, will be forever bummed I never got to see them play live. I have a bootleg called "Sounds & moods" with a KILLER version of Born of frustration, absolutely the best version ever, if ppl want it let me know..

Have only got the 'Best of' album but One of those rare 'Best of's that can be listened to the whole way. Every single is amazing. So, as you may have guessed, I like James too!

I listened to them for the first time this last weekend (thanks to HG), I enjoyed what I heard.

What would you recommend, getting the album 'Laid' first or the 'Best Of'?

I'll throw in a monkey wrench and say that if you want to try an album first, try 'Seven.' I think it's a bit more accessible than 'Laid,' even though 'Laid' was the first album I had. Then again, going with their best of is a good choice as well. Lots of great songs on there. I'm glad you liked what you heard.

James is in my top 5 list of favorite bands. I was lucky enough to see them live 4 times before they called it quits.

I recommend anything and everything by them. Their live album is amazing.

I worked in a music store when Laid first came out. I remember getting the promotional materials for the album - they said "Get Laid by James" Most people thought it was funny but I remember one day an older woman who was shopping saw the poster and complained that it was indecent. Needless to say, she didn't buy it.
