Described by the website IndieLondon as « a clever stop-start track that’s delivered with verve », Chameleon, one of the obligatory two new songs included on the singles compilation « Fresh As A Daisy ».
Starring the gentleman Chris Golding as cover model, a title that perfectly fits with his discretion, the song is worthy of inclusion and points to an equally interesting future at the time of its release in 2007, in conjunction with James’ 2007 reformation.
It was first played live at the reunion show at Hoxton Bar And Grill on March 16, 2007.
Live review : “It’s called Chameleon,” explains Tim, just as this splendid racket stops dead for a few seconds, before suddenly resuming.
“It’s fucking great, isn’t it?”, says Jim, tapping both feet with an enthusiasm that makes it clear that, as far as he’s concerned, the question is rhetorical. Chameleon is one of the brace of new songs that appears on the reissued Best Of.
