Oh no, I got it all wrong
Spoken out of turn, again
Sold myself too short, not long
I’ve broken out and burnt.

Bitch.

Sleeve art number 23, released 25.07.2016, reworked 13.05.2019, starring Sam Paul as cover model. louderthanwar.com : Opening with Bitch, a track so groovy that it oozes from the speakers is a masterstroke. It pulls the listener into a different world; throbbing bass and thumping keys propel the funky, neo-punk riff – which has a twang reminiscent of Joy Division’s Transmission – for almost half the song before any vocals come in. It makes it all the more frustrating that just as we’re getting into it, it’s over. Could we have a 12” extended version, please? https://www.musicomh.com : Bitch is a great opener. With the vocals not entering until about halfway through, the track is driven by Jim Glennie’s pulsing bass and Mark Hunter’s shimmering synths. It has a krautrock/early New Order feel, fizzing with nervous energy as Booth characteristically gives vent to his self-directed frustrations. http://www.theyorker.co.uk : The album kicks off with a heavy bass riff by Jim Glennie lasting two and a half minutes. This song Bitch is a combination of electronic and rock with Tim Booth providing aggressive vocals. Tim Booth, Even The Stars 2016 : « I think there’s some really killer live songs, I think Bitch will sound great live and something like Waking, which isn’t a traditional James song, has a lot of room for trumpet to have fun, there’s a lot of joy in the music, it’s very uplifting. I can see us doing nearly all of them live. » More information about the project here : www.weallarejames.com #girlattheendoftheworld #gateotw #weallarejames #jamestheband #sleeves #design #art #graphicdesign #virtualsleeve #artwork #artworks
