Not sure it’s getting him hoards of new fans,

She didn’t say ‘hoards’.
people have watched the Simpsons and out of curiosity head over to Sp9tify to have a listen to the music. Some may become fans of course.
:rolleyes:

In the scheme of things though the numbers aren’t great. James for example who aren’t particular well known outside of Europe, have over 2 million monthy listens and New Order have over 5 million.

Yes but they write pretty safe music, so of course they are more popular, which doesn’t mean they’re actually good.

WTF is James? Keeps getting mentioned. A British thing?
Yes made in England. Fairly big in the 80s and 90s, less big now, naturally, but still making good music regularly, they scrambled together a nice album a few years ago (2014) La Petite Mort, worth an hour of your ears.

They are pretty prolific nowadays, they tend to release a new album every 2 years which chart pretty well and then (last couple have been 2 and number 6 ) they do an arena tour off the back of it. Personally I think La Petite Mort is their best album.

Yes he is dreadful and he knows he's dreadful but when Ian died they didn't want to bring in a replacement and he was the best of the rest of them.

Like marr bernard makes his voice work best he can. I liked it very much on the first electronic album and the bad lieutenant stuff

Thanks, is there a particularly good song I should listen to?
Admittedly my knowledge of James doesn't run that deep, but I've been partial to the hits: Laid, Say Something, Born of Frustration, Sit Down, She's A Star... I'm sure there's more.

Interesting bit of trivia, in 1985 The Smiths did a live cover of a James song called "What's the World?"

I've always loved "Hymn From a Village" (1985) - see what you think!

Yeah, that and the first album Stutter is great. But they went down hill awhile after, going a more conventional route, I believe a change of band members may have been an issue too regarding the lack of interesting songs.

I'm sold at Laid.

And wow, totally embarrassed about not recognizing the name from What's the World?. I guess it wasn't on an original 7" or 12" (at least that I have) so I rarely saw the credits. And a name like James doesn't stand out.

Will definitely listen to more, thanks for all responses!
