Biography

More recently he has worked in various guises, (including Forbidden Planet and Darcadian), gradually moving away underground club music.

His interest in the authenticity of song and musical expression led him to turn his back for a while on all forms of computer trickery, concentrating instead on the development of a unique style of guitar playing and a distinctive approach to the crafting of lyrics and vocal melodies.

James' new material brings together these separate threads, drawing on his solid electronic pedigree and integrating these elements with his unusual guitar work, unique quirky videos and imaginative and meaningful lyrics.

Watch this space for news and sneak previews of James' forthcoming album 'Illusion of Liberty .

Redemption

Musket Pipe and Drum

Diamonds in the Dirt

Caught in the Crossfire

To the dirty mean streets I was called when I was very young
But I see beauty in the desolation
Wild flowers greet my eyes with colour
As I wait for you by the old canal

Heaven sparkles in the muddy water shining in my eye
Migrant birds will land here from great distant shores
To breed again by the old abandoned mill
Hope lives here still

I remember when I felt so low
I stared at the water and I heard it call
But hear my ideology
That strength is born of adversity

Like diamonds in the dirt
We're like diamonds in the dirt

And when you're approaching senses keen and troubled waters stir
I sense momentum in your movements here
Green things growing from the walls
Of abandoned mills as I wait here still

I remember when I felt so low
I stared at the water and I heard it call out

Diamonds in the dirt
We're like diamonds in dirt
We are diamonds in dirt
And there's gold beneath the earth

We're in the same boat you and I
Caught in the crossfire aftermath
Of each other

Seems like yesterday's over
Feels like tomorrows on hold yeah
Time stands still with you drifting like
Spirit on the face of troubled water

Meet me by the graves in the church yard
We'll sit beneath the trees and talk like nothing matters
We reach the same point, no turning backwards
And I can see no harbour for safe returning

We're in the same boat you and I
Caught in the crossfire aftermath
Of each other

But time moves on regardless
Of all that's been and had it'd day now
There's no black cat crossing my path
There's no reason for suspicious eyes and superstitious ways
All these things I hate
If we could change this double minded point of view
Telling you that we deserve the things we think we need
But you criticize cos that's what you do
Just don't tell me I'm the only one to bear the blame cos . .

We're in the same boat you and I
Caught in the crossfire aftermath
It's time to take our baby steps on the stormy sea, the stormy sea

A Wind Blows Softly

Ship of Dreams

Late and out of time but by design with perfect measure
Pure and crystalline the water holds a precious treasure
The eyes show signs of life the light is there but she's evasive
Maybe I'm mesmerised but I see before me many changes

A wind blows softly over me I feel it

Ten thousand satellites and people are manipulated
Tell a million lies to shield the real illusion
We're anesthetized to bleed the hype and toe the line but
Baby it's crystallized that I see before me many dangers

A wind blows softly over me I feel it
Change brings the answer for those who seek it

A season is here
Analyze this
As rain draws to the sea
A river flows through me

Pure and crystalline the water holds a holy treasure
To quench and purify the brightest and the worst offender
To feel their cords unwind is so sublime a perfect pleasure
Late and out of time but by design and so untainted

A wind blows softly over me I feel it
Change brings the answer for those who need it

Sailing the sea
And the rolling ocean
In a ship of dreams
A ship of fools, a ship of fools

Its teaming with rain
And the waves are calling
To Jonah the brave
But the prophet's sleeping

And in a dream he hears a call
'Man overboard, man overboard!'
Is this ship of dreams this ship of friends,
Sailing right off the edge . . of the world

Of the world, of the world
Of the world, of the world

Rain turns to hail
And raging ocean
The billows will roll
The ship is failing

A song on the air
Sirens beckoning
The prophet will wake
The sea is calling, calling

And in a dream he heard a call
'Man overboard', when the tempest rolled again
Is this ship of dreams this ship of friends,
Sailing right off the edge . . of the world

Of the world, of the world
Of the world, of the world
