You’ll think by bearing James as a name for your band you’re more likely to be associated to a Pete Waterman’s solo artist or pop-ish group than an acclaimed and serious indie rock band. Confusing. Well this Manchester lot prove to us that not everything is in a name and that the songs and attitude prevail above all. Who can forget the infectious tunes of All Sit Down, Lose Control and She’s A Star.

This shot for the sleeve of She's A Star was taken on the fourth floor of the Chelsea Hotel, New York. It had been raining for most of the day but while the planned outdoor location was being rearranged, and during this break in production, Ian Davies decided to use the opportunity of working outside his room and from this bit of improvisation, this shot was taken. 

'The mask was made by the superb New York based artist Greg Wittrock who is a friend of James lead singer Tim Booth. The model was a dancer named Rebecca.'
