History: James through the years
2006: A New Day Dawns
In a Victorian warehouse just around the corner from the now defunct Hacienda Club, Jim, Tim and Larry jam together for the first time in 10 years, they find something that they had mislaid. Unfinished business.
2007: The Improbable Return Of The Magnificent 7
Tim, Jim and Larry continue to write lots of new material and even get to record a couple of new tracks for a proposed re-package of 1998's 'Best of'.
A nationwide tour to promote the album is suggested but the three will only tour if Mark, Dave and Saul will join them. Wonderfully all six agree and the gigs go on sale and unexpectedly sell out in a couple of hours. Offers from Festivals all over Europe start to fill up the Spring and Summer of what was intended to be a year of writing and production.
How can we make the festivals special? They wondered. Andy Diagram, who always enjoyed a good festival, was asked if he fancied it and lo and behold the 7, of 'Gold Mother' and 'Seven' fame, were once again re-united.
2008: Hey Ma The Boys Are Back!
Album released 7th April, what happens next I wonder? . . . . . watch this space.
