Biography

Since September 2004, Jamie has also played drums in the band Caretaker. Jamie has also performed as a guest vocalist on albums by Frank Turner, Sean Genockey and Left Side Brain. Jamie and band mate Guy Davis collaberated with yourcodenameis:milo on Milo’s Print Is Dead project.

    Actually, I think Lenman should be spoken about in the same way as Blake or Byron in 200 years or so. His way with words is insane.

    Both discs rule, some of the heavy parts are honestly some of the greatest riffs I've heard recently and the some of the softer parts are... happy, even? That said, a Reuben reunion would, of course, be the best news in the world right now. I'm not even sure that's hyperbole.

    @byron2606: That being said, I do enjoy the soft-side quite a bit. I think Pretty Please is a great example of Jamie's witty yet meaningful lyrics.

    Can we all thank Jonzo for his post back in 2011 for making this happen. [3]

    So this is grown to be one of my favourite of the year. Lenman can do no wrong. The second disc is utterly gorgeous.

    jelgerw: "Not too fond of the heavy side of the disc. What I liked about the heaviness in Reuben is that it came in doses, well balanced. You had the poppy verse and then the heavy chorus. The poppy song and then: BAM. Return of the Jedi. Epic track, BAM heavy ending (Short History of Nearly Everything). By having no balance, the heaviness weirdly enough loses its punch, its worth. But still glad to hear Jamie make music again, did not see that happening at all these past few years." My thoughts exactly, I'm so glad he's back, but it made me realise that Reuben had a way of doing things that can't be replicated. Hopefully Jim's album is the first step towards a Reuben reunion.
