Biography

There are several artists in this entry:
1) a British indie rock band formed in 1981 in Manchester
2) the vocalist of popular Bangladeshi band Nagar Baul
3) a Dutch rapper connected to the Fakkelteitgroep.

1) James (formed 1981 in Manchester, England) are a popular band that were at the forefront of the indie rock movement, releasing a string of hit singles and maintaining popularity through the ’90s.

The band’s sound is mostly defined by their lead singer Tim Booth’s resonating vocals and emotional lyrics, as well as a spirit of experimentation that they held onto throughout their active career. The band’s most well-known songs include the hits “Sit Down” and “Laid”, the former marking the band’s rise to popularity.

Although James predate the ‘ scene’ of the late 1980s and their sound was never “baggy” nevertheless their Mancunian origins and their more commercial releases were appropriated by the scene. For many reasons, including the departure of lead singer Booth, the band’s final album became a struggle to record. This departure occurred in 2001 and the band has been inactive since, though they never officially declared a breakup. In 2007, the band was reactivated when Booth returned to the band.

2) James is the vocalist of popular Bangladeshi band Nagar Baul. He was a member of the band Feelings and later formed the band Nagar Baul. James was raised in Chittagong and later moved to Dhaka for his singing career.
