The English band James has been around since the early 80s. They are one of those British bands that is exceeding well-known in their home country but only have a cult following in the US. With over ten studio albums to their credit, the band is best known for the song “Laid” produced by Brian Eno. Through the years they have been through various personnel changes and the lead singer, Tim Booth, left the band for awhile to pursue solo projects. A few years ago they reunited and this year released two mini-albums: The Night Before and The Morning After. In the states the two have been combined as The Morning After the Night Before! “Crazy” is from this album, available as a free download from iTunes and is the Song of the Day.

The Future of the Recording Industry

“I think records were just a little bubble through time and those who made a living from them for a while were lucky. There is no reason why anyone should have made so much money from selling records except that everything was right for this period of time. I always knew it would run out sooner or later. It couldn’t last, and now it’s running out. I don’t particularly care that it is and like the way things are going. The record age was just a blip. It was a bit like if you had a source of whale blubber in the 1840s and it could be used as fuel. Before gas came along, if you traded in whale blubber, you were the richest man on Earth. Then gas came along and you’d be stuck with your whale blubber. Sorry mate – history’s moving along. Recorded music equals whale blubber. Eventually, something else will replace it.”
