May 16, 2024

Hi Everyone,

Since getting back from San Francisco and my album mix with Jesse Nichols, he and I have undergone 3 lots of revisions of the final mixes! Tonight is the last one!

The record will go off to Fred Kevorkian for mastering in Brooklyn, NY and be in the manufacturing plant in Poland by June 1

It sounds AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!! perfection!!!!!!!! Can’t believe it!!!!!!!!

– and the artwork is coming together beautifully too! That needs to be into the pressing plant by mid-June!

Exquisite photos taken by David Dodd (he also did Queen High Straight, my previous double album) 

I have release dates to announce! 3 singles (digital) upfront!

More elaboration on the formatting of the release! The Vinyl and CD are advertised as deluxe and boy are they deluxe

So…… I’m moving forward!

There will be q&as, signing and performance at all the ROUGH TRADE stores around the UK, Berlin and NYC too, a gig to announce in London and touring for all 2025 in support of my 10th Album 

Visuals will be filmed by Douglas Hart (originally Jesus and Mary Chain and now a fabulous video director!)

THE SHAPE OF HISTORY

April 18, 2024

April, Wednesday 17th!

I’m back at home after having been in Oakland, CA USA mixing my 10th album ‘THE SHAPE OF HISTORY’ with mix engineer Jesse Nichols (you may remember, he mixed a previous album of mine, The Price Of The Ticket).

The album is finished!!

Mastering has to happen of course, with Fred Kevorkian in Brooklyn NY. I’m going to listen to the album tomorrow and make notes! I know I have such a perfect album and I know you’re going to love it!

It’s got the mix I usually deliver: from alt rock indie punk new wave pop through to hard core guitar stomps and soft and intimate ballading….

I’ve started designing the artwork and next week 26-28 April I will shoot the photo session for the album art. 

Then the album, once mastered, will go off to be manufactured and that will determine the release date, to be announced soon!

I started tracking the recording in West London in May 2023 and I finished mixing with 2 minutes to spare, last Saturday night in Oakland! 

Recording Engineer – Tomas Gagliardo assisted by Rosendo Zinny at LeMob Studios, West London, UK, Al Lawson at Mix Studios, West London, UK, Ben Rice at Degraw Sound, Brooklyn NY, USA

Lead & Rhythm Guitar, Piano, Keys, Clarinet – Alex Ward
Additional Lead & Rhythm Guitar – Louis Eliot

THE MIX!

February 16, 2024

My 10th album ‘THE SHAPE OF HISTORY’ is moving onto the MIX STAG

– and I’ve decided to mix it with Jesse Nichols who mixed THE PRICE OF THE TICKET with me back in 2015 (released February 2016)

The Price Of The Ticket was of course, the legend filled album of #JamesWilliamson (#IggyandtheStooges) #LennyKaye (#ThePattiSmithGroup) #GlenMatlock (#SexPistols) and #JamesSclavunos (#NickCaveandtheBadSeeds) recording engineer #IvanJulian (#RichardHellandtheVoidoids)

We mixed in #Berkeley, #California at #FantasyStudios, which is now closed, so Jesse has his own place in #Oakland. My flight is booked! I go to #SanFrancisco on March 30th and we mix straight through until the 14th April….

Yes! It’s real!

So, may I extend the VIP pass to anyone in the USA (or anywhere) that fancies a little time in Oakland CA… come to San Francisco, see Alcratraz! Visit China and Japan Town, take a look around Berkeley, take in the Oakland A’s and…. come VIP with me!

VIP PASS available here: https://thewendyjames.com/store

So, it’s crunch time…… no second chances, no do-overs. Al Lawson and I have recorded exceptional music from James Sclavunos, Alex Ward, Harry Bohay, Dave The Moose Sherman and Louis Eliot and now it’s time to get those faders up and make something of it. 

13 Brand New Songs, written by me: 

1. SWEET LIKE LOVE
2. A HAPPY LIFE
3. EVERYTHING IS MAGIC
4. MAY I KISS YOU? (JUST ENOUGH TO GET US INTO TROUBLE)
5. THE CRACK AND THE BOOM OF THE CREEPS AND THE GOONS
6. A BIG VICIOUS RUMBLE
7. DO YOU DIG IT? DO YOU LOVE IT? IS IT GROOVY?
8. DON’T LET DAYLIGHT INTO MAGIC
9. THIS DECLARATION OF LOVE
10. FREEDOMSVILLE
11. STEP ASIDE ROADKILL
12. THANK YOU FOR THE TIME WE SHARED
13. THE SHAPE OF HISTORY

I am very much looking forward to reuniting with Jesse. He is a BAD-ASS!

Suffice to say, this next step brings me a massively closer to having a finished album to go to manufacture with! My 10th Album ‘THE SHAPE OF HISTORY… very happy, very excited!

Thank you all so much

and simply put: PRE-ORDER ALBUM 10 here: https://thewendyjames.com/store !!!!

and VIP in SAN FRANCISCO/BERKELEY/OAKLAND too!

THE SHAPE OF HISTORY

January 30, 2024

It is official! My 10th album ‘THE SHAPE OF HISTORY’ is finished in the recording process. What started last May 2023 and has involved about 16 weeks of recording, in 2 week increments, has now completed.

You can scroll back through my feed and see the day I caught the bus along Marylebone Road to Scrubs Lane for the first day of live recording.

I am so lucky to be surrounded by JAMES SCLAVUNOS on drums and percussion, ALEX WARD on lead, rhythm guitar and keyboards of all sorts, HARRY BOHAY on bass, DAVE SHERMAN on piano and keyboards, with guitar overdubs from LOUIS ELIOT.

Engineers Tomas Gagliardo, Al Lawson and Ben Rice. Al Lawson being the main recording engineer, on whom I relied so intensely.

I thank you all for your incredible talent and undoubtable friendship. The album wouldn’t have turned out so well as it has, were it not for you all.

I thank all the wonderful VIP guests who visited the recording process and in turn helped the recording process, it was a pleasure to meet each of you!

I thank every single pre-order and purchase from my store https://thewendyames.com/store.
I pay my own way, what I earn, I spend on the next record. I couldn’t do it without you and I thank you so much and encourage you to buy more!!!

NEXT: MIXING

I will be sorting out who the mix engineer is going to be over the next week or 2 and when the mix will happen.

Then Master!

Then Manufacture!

Then Release!

But, for today: I’ve listened to the reference mixes I walked out of the studio with at 9pm on Saturday night and they are GREAT. I am excited and confident.

So, Thank you all…..

With love
Wendy xoxo

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

January 9, 2024

I hope you all had a good old time of it!

Next week, for two weeks: 15th January – 27th January, I will be back in West London, for what I think will be the final recording session of my 10th Album. I began recording last spring and so many sessions have happened since then! Full band sessions, overdub sessions, the NY piano and keyboards overdubs and now it’s time for James Sclavunos and Alex Ward to come in and put their cherry on top: Percussion, Keyboards, Guitar and finally I will sing all the backing vocals I’ve written: not just harmonies but also whole arrangements.

So many of you have VIP accompanied me in the studio, and just like VIP gigs, it’s a pleasure for me to meet you, spend time with you and get to know you.

From POP ART, VELVETEEN, LITTLE MAGNETS VS THE BUBBLE OF BABBLE, NOW AIN’T THE TIME FOR YOUR TEARS, RACINE 1, RACINE 2, I CAME HERE TO BLOW MINDS, THE PRICE OF THE TICKET, QUEEN HIGH STRAIGHT and now… THE SHAPE OF HISTORY.

Please do pre order ALBUM 10 Deluxe CD, Deluxe Vinyl, Test Pressings, Posters, T-shirts, Artwork Proofs and all my albums on delicious vinyl and CD’s, including some box-fresh TVV vinyls and cds which can be personalized!

 https://thewendyjames.com/store

Every sale is going toward the album budget and every sale of THE SHAPE OF HISTORY adds to its first week chart position.

If you want to VIP this final session, please do here:

https://thewendyjames.com/product/the-wendy-james-album-10-vip-studio-visit/

You will, at this stage of the VIP Visit, either see me/Jim/Alex performing or you’ll literally hear multiple songs from the album!

Your own private listening party!!

Let me know what date suits you: enquiries@thewendyjames.com

My love and thanks as always…

Gosh! November! Thanksgiving for Americans….

December 1, 2023

I posted these pictures on my instagram page of the giant Snoopy balloon floating around 5th Avenue and Central Park, the aerial shot and a brilliant photograph of Snoopy’s head passing by the window of two girls’ apartment block! Captured magically by Elliott Erwitt during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. New York City, 1988.

So, thank you indeed! Just think! Transvision Vamp were already releasing records and having hits when this photo was taken!

SO! ALBUM 10 ‘THE SHAPE OF HISTORY’ 

I was in London a couple of weeks ago, doing the previous session, integrating all the piano parts I’d recorded in NYC, into the master recordings, and making qualified reference mixes, mixes I can sit at home with and hear everything going on and make detailed criticisms, knowing what needs to happen next. I can say definitively that the last recording session for ALBUM 10 in London will be January 15th-27th so for those of you curious to see and hear what happens in the studio, this is your final chance to attend a recoding session.

Here is how THE SHAPE OF HISTORY opens! Played beautifully by Dave ’The Moose’ Sherman in Brooklyn, NY the other week… it’s the opener for track 1 ’Sweet Like Love’

– Ain’t it pretty!

I think I will make the mix sessions available for VIP but I’m not yet certain who is going to be the mix engineer or where it’s going to happen, so I’d say get your VIP now! Anyone who’s attended will tell you what a pleasure it is for both them and me, (and Al, the engineer) to share the hours together, I chat and get to know you as much as work permits and at the same time, you get to hear and see my new album being made! I recommend the experience!

I’ll be singing backing vocals and Jim and Alex will be in for final guitar, final keyboards and all percussion. Plus more reference mixes.

https://thewendyjames.com/product/the-wendy-james-album-10-vip-studio-visit/

There’s a vague timeline in my mind for 2024: Finish recording in January. Find a mix engineer and mix the album in March/April-ish, Master in May, get in the manufacturing queue for Vinyl, make the artwork, whilst waiting for vinyl to press, and basically release the
album early summer, with touring to promote for the back end of 2024……

All of this is subject to change of course, one cannot predict other people’s diaries!

Either way, Album 10 ‘THE SHAPE OF HISTORY’ is rounding the last couple of corners and you’ll have it soon. It is SO musical, both direct and subtle, depending on the song and I know you’re going to be in love with it! If you’ve not yet preordered, then Vinyl, CD, Poster, T-Shirt, Artwork Proof and Test Pressings are all available for preorder here:

https://thewendyjames.com/product-category/wendy-james-album-10/

LOOKING FORWARD TO THE FESTIVE SEASON!

Decorations and trees are going up, for those who celebrate Christmas, on the streets there is an abundance of glittering lights! I love Christmas lights! I love fireworks too… Some things never change, I’ve always been delighted by the twinkling magic of nighttime lights and fireworks bursting in the sky… I hope you’ve got a few days respite from your daily routines and a plan to be with people you care about and who care about you, or… if you’re happy being alone and just need some space!! I get that too! I’ll write again in a few weeks time to say “Merry Christmas” but for now, I remind you I’ve got some seriously good quality picture discs in stock: RACINE 2 and Splatter Pattern vinyl for I CAME HERE TO BLOW MINDS reissue, I’ve got test pressings, rare and collectable, some original Transvision Vamp vinyl I can sign to you (or whomever) and really great merch: from the classic t-shirts: Kurt, Icon, Face, Tatler, to my luxurious hoodies, the ‘1989’ world tour hoodie and the ‘Revolution Baby’ image hoodie, both 4ply organic thick fleecy hoodies! From super cool stickers and patches to a preorder of an artwork proof and of course, my many albums on cd and vinyl… many, many presents for anyone who loves music, art and clothes!!

Buy here: https://thewendyjames.com/store

Here’s a promo clip of the picture disc ‘RACINE 2’ vinyl!

An update for the next recording sessions!

October 24, 2023

Hello! Love to you all, I hope all is well!

– An update for the next recording sessions!

– This time last week I was walking alongside the Hudson from Battery Park to W.14th Street, glorious it was too….

During my NYC time I recorded all the keyboards with Dave ‘Moose’ Sherman for my 10th Album ‘THE SHAPE OF HISTORY’. Wonderful work!

Now I’m headed to LDN Shepherds Bush to finish editing the lead guitar and now, all the keyboard parts. A two week stretch! You can get your VIP pass to see/hear the action from my webstore:

https://thewendyjames.com/product/the-wendy-james-album-10-vip-studio-visit/

I’m at the stage where anyone VIP’ing will hear, more of less, the entire album! It is without a doubt my most advanced record of my life, with songs and production so perfect they defy belief!!! I couldn’t be more happy or more inspired. 

After this November editing stage, strings will happen in LA, USA and then backing vocals/percussion/additional overdubs in London…… dates to be announced.

Then…………………. it’s done

Then………………….it’s mix time…..

Wow!

So come to the VIP it’s a pleasure for me to meet you and spend time with you! 

https://thewendyjames.com/product/the-wendy-james-album-10-vip-studio-visit/

– and preorder ‘THE SHAPE OF HISTORY’ every preorder goes toward week one chart position…

https://thewendyjames.com/product-category/wendy-james-album-10/

My last two albums charted at 14 and 16 respectively…. would be lovely to break the top 10……….

I Love You!!

Thank you!!

Wendy xoxo

I am MID-RECORDING!!

September 26, 2023

Hello Everyone! How has summer been for you?

I am MID-RECORDING!!

Yes, I would say I’m half way through recording ALBUM 10 ‘THE SHAPE OF HISTORY’

– AND it is MAGNIFICENT!

There are multiples of my trademark choppy, new wave, punky songs and there is a stretch too! A 7 minute 80’s dance track, no.10 ‘FREEDOMSVILLE’, combining sounds as wide as Blondie’s ‘Call Me’ to Klaus Nomi to Transvision Vamp’s ‘Trash City’ and another favorite of mine, currently trk 11 ‘THANK YOU FOR THE TIME WE SHARED’ clocking in at only 2.25 minutes but SO soulful, in the vibe of CALIFORNIA SOUL by Marlena Shaw….

BLONDIE –  CALL ME: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=StKVS0eI85I

KLAUS NOMI – THE COLD SONG: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TnkVgKzKPt8

TRANSVISION VAMP – TRASH CITY: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3ii6HRL2Vc

MARLENA SHAW – CALIFORNIA SOUL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kC2QK6KHnEA

Musicians so far:

WENDY JAMES – VOCALS

JAMES SCLAVUNOS – DRUMS/PERCUSSION

HARRY BOHAY – BASS

ALEX WARD – RHYTHM/LEAD GUITAR + WURLITZER AND PIANO

LOUIS ELIOT – ADDITIONAL GUITAR

Here are two stonking solo’s done by Alex and Louis…… I LOVE them!!!!!!!!!

GUITAR SOLO IN TRACK 11 ‘STEP ASIDE ROADKILL’ 
 

GUITAR SOLO IN TRACK 12 ’THANK YOU FOR THE TIME WE SHARED’

I’m off, in two weeks time, back to NYC to record DAVE ‘MOOSE’ SHERMAN (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds) on all keyboard instruments! From Grand Piano to electric synth sounds to theremin and harp!!!!!

I’ll return to London to edit in these parts, do some ref mixes and send them out to Hollywood where Adam Peters, (who used to remix TVV) an orchestral composer and arranger, will write some string parts for the album.

GET A VIP PASS TO THE RECORDING STUDIO! COME AND SEE/HEAR IT HAPPEN! SPEND AN AFTERNOON WITH ME IN THE STUDIO! Next sessions available: the first two weeks of November! Everyone who has done it, has loved it… fascinating behind the scenes times and we get to spend some time together too!

https://thewendyjames.com/product/the-wendy-james-album-10-vip-studio-visit/

I will then sing all my backing vocals, Jim Sclavunos will do his percussion, any other instruments will be considered at this stage: Horn Section etc or other overdubs….

– and that get’s us to END OF RECORDING!!!!!!

For this album I think I’m going to go looking for a specific MIX ENGINEER, someone who specializes in mixing hit records… it is my 10th album, it is full of musical arrangements and needs to show itself off in the very best way. Mix engineers tend to have different ears to producer ears.

So, all things being said and done, expect to have a finished album by springtime 2024, in manufacture for 3 months and a release date of early summer 2024!

*****Please do preorder, I think I’ve said before, as well as the obvious help it gives me, paying for everything, every preorder is chart eligible so the more I sell before release date the more it helps a healthy chart position.

There is a deluxe VINYL w/ download and a deluxe CD, there are test pressings, artwork proofs, an official tshirt, an official poster – all signed by me xo

ALBUM 10 ‘THE SHAPE OF HISTORY’ will be a brilliant bit of work and I am proud to say, marks my 10th album release in all glory for the long, long journey it’s been! So many adventures, trials, jubilations, lessons, struggles, obstacles, life lessons, time changes (from 1987 to 2024!) and yet… of all the things that remain constant: YOU, ME, MUSIC – it hasn’t changed. It remains so joyful and lovely to see you at gigs, hear from you by email and know you via social media posts…… I am so, so, so, grateful and I love you all so much!

Thank you

Love

RECORDING ALBUM 10! ‘THE SHAPE OF HISTORY’

May 15, 2023

Well, the first session is complete! We tracked drums, bass and rhythm guitar… plus guide vocals.

What an incredible session is was…. Smooth, stress free, and full of great music and incredible playing! All 13 songs, each with their own personalities starting to show themselves.

It’s interesting, I have no plan when I write, I look at my large collection of lyrics, pick up the guitar and start playing around, until something, a melody, a rhythm, a lyrical hook develops. I never know what direction the song is going to go in until the chords start suggesting a vibe to me, and then I pick up the trail and start pursuing it!

James Sclavunos joins me on Drums (again), Alex Ward on Rhythm Guitar and Harry Bohay on Bass. All three played on Queen High Straight (although Alex was saxophone on that album, not guitar…)

I shall be playing rhythm guitar too, plus a lead guitarist, a lead piano and organ player, strings, who knows what else!

I can already tell, the album will be incredible… there’s a way to go but it is going to be incredible. Not one detail will be compromised and I shall give everything I have to achieve the very best piece of music.

Having my VIP guests was a delight… you know I relish the chance to meet you, know you, become friends with you and this opportunity I opened up in the studio was just that. I welcomed people into the studio where they watched us rehearse, create and record whichever track we were doing on the day they visited. Thank you all for your presence, we all loved having you with us.

The VIP sessions will continue during the overdub stage so, if you feel like witnessing my work in progress, please do buy here: https://thewendyjames.com/product/the-wendy-james-album-10-vip-studio-visit/

There will be many, many dates, so you can find one that works for you. I will announce the next session dates soon.

So! 13 songs – these are the song titles:

WENDY JAMES ALBUM 10 ‘THE SHAPE OF HISTORY’

1. SWEET LIKE LOVE

2. A HAPPY LIFE

3. EVERYTHING IS MAGIC

4. MAY I KISS YOU? (JUST ENOUGH TO GET US INTO TROUBLE)

5. THE CRACK AND THE BOOM OF THE CREEPS AND THE GOONS

6. A BIG VICIOUS RUMBLE

7. DO YOU DIG IT? DO YOU LOVE IT? IS IT GROOVY?

8. DON’T LET DAYLIGHT INTO MAGIC

9. THIS DECLARATION OF LOVE

10. FREEDOMSVILLE

11. STEP ASIDE ROADKILL

12. THANK YOU FOR THE TIME WE SHARED

13. THE SHAPE OF HISTORY

We worked 10 days straight per 10 hour days, I’m a little burnt right now, but after a couple of days recovery I shall be ‘up and at ‘em’. It was a fun routine catching the bus along Marylebone Road on the way to the studio, past Regents Park into Harrow Road and my original area, Ladbroke Grove, West London… and at night, taking an Uber back along the Westway, lights and tower blocks twinkling in the night.

So! Onwards… the next stage will be master lead vocals and that will happen in a few weeks time

My 10th Album will be everything you want it to be!

Thank you so much for all your love and support

‘I CAME HERE TO BLOW MINDS’ SPLATTER PATTERN COLOUR VINYL REISSUE IS NOW IN STOCK!

August 30, 2022

*STOP THE PRESS!

Hello everyone!

This newsletter was scheduled for last Tuesday. However, when the vinyl for ‘I CAME HERE TO BLOW MINDS’ splatter pattern reissue arrived in the UK, ready for distribution, I discovered that the colour choice I’d ordered was not the same as the vinyl delivered. 

I do love the new one, I approve it, so it has immediately become a collector rarity, because I’ve held back 45 copies and the rest are being swapped out for my original colour choice. So, the 45 additional very rare copies are now up for grabs……

For all of you who preordered, your record is on the way and you have something special!

For all you who who did not! Please order a copy! You will briefly (as long as stock lasts) have the choice to receive the Pink/White version in 4 weeks time or the specialty Red/White/Blue now…

 RED/WHITE/BLUE Rarity:

Buy here:

PINK/WHITE Original:

Buy here:

As for the vinyl package itself:

This is my ‘break-out’ LP and features 13 original compositions.The songs are typically ranging from my love of New York New Wave Rock n Roll through to more Country Ballad and Phil Spector ‘Wall Of Sound’ production. Reissued now as a Special Edition Colour Splatter 12” vinyl. Not only that… the artwork: jacket, inner-sleeve and labels have been re-envisioned and updated, clearly this is a one-off run of vinyls!

IN OTHER GOOD NEWS…

ALBUM 10

Here is a video message I prerecorded at the end of last week! Not only announcing ‘I Came Here To Blow Minds’ availability but also the fact that I’ve finished demo-ing Song 9 of The Wendy James Album 10, it’s called ‘This Declaration Of Love’.

I know I’ve said all along that there would be 10 songs for Album 10 but I do have 2 further ideas so it might be that Album 10 has 12 songs on it!

Either way, the wait for the writing stage is nearly over and I’ll be able to start scheduling the recording sessions and therefore the VIP studio visits too! Don’t worry – the recording process will stretch out over half a year I’m sure, so there will be many dates to choose from!

ALBUM 10

Song Titles so far are:

1. SWEET LIKE LOVE
2. A HAPPY LIFE
3. EVERYTHING IS MAGIC
4. MAY I KISS YOU? (JUST ENOUGH TO GET US INTO TROUBLE)
5. THE CRACK AND THE BOOM OF THE CREEPS AND THE GOONS
6. A BIG VICIOUS RUMBLE
7. DO YOU DIG IT? DO YOU LOVE IT? IS IT GROOVY?
8. DON’T LET DAYLIGHT INTO MAGIC
9. THIS DECLARATION OF LOVE

– and they’re all great!!

Preorder Album 10 at https://thewendyjames.com/product-category/wendy-james-album-10/in a handful of different formats, some of which will include extras and bonuses too (to be decided!)

So, I hope you’re all good and Thank you as always and Love as always

I CAME HERE TO BLOW MINDS 12” VINYL REISSUE

The splatter pattern 12” vinyl reissue of I Came Here To Blow Minds is in the final stages of manufacture, I should have the artwork proofs ready to send out to those of you who’ve bought them, very soon! The vinyl itself was approved a while ago, but because of Brexit, Covid and a general shortage of Pressing Plants around the world, the queue for vinyl has been more lengthy than usual! My eta for delivery is the summer months… none-the-less, when I do have the vinyls and you have them in your hands, it will have been worth the wait! Not only is it a great album, containing some of my favorite songs, but the look and quality of the vinyl will be so nice! I think there is a test pressing still available for ICHTBM and there are a couple more artwork proofs too…..

I think there is a test pressing still available for ICHTBM and there are a couple more artwork proofs too….. so get those!

PS. I forgot to mention (!!!)

January 14, 2022

Also, with this new pressing of ‘I Came Here To Blow Minds’ color splatter 12” vinyl, comes a couple of 12” Vinyl Test Pressings and five full Artwork Proofs!

As you know, the manufacturers and pressing plant send the test pressings to me to check that the master vinyl is correct, before the full run goes into production and ditto the artwork proofs, so I can check every detail/color and also give them the green light to go into production

Both of which I will sign, number and personalize to you!

Both such lovely things to own and frame! I would buy all three, if this is one of your favorite albums, or if you’re a collector! The splatter color vinyl 12”, the test pressing and the artwork proof!

Two very desirable collectors pieces along side the special edition splatter vinyl!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! VINYL REISSUE NEWS!!

January 14, 2022

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you’re all great!

– I have vinyl reissue news!

I CAME HERE TO BLOW MINDS is in production for vinyl reissue! Not only that… it’s had an upgrade! 

It is now as a special edition color splatter 12” vinyl and the artwork: jacket, inner-sleeve and labels have been reimagined and updated! This is a one-off run of vinyls! I love this splatter vinyl color choice and the artwork looks wonderful! I’m very pleased! I love it! 

– I love this album so much, it contains so many of my favorite songs, ranging from my love of New York New Wave Rock n Roll through to more Country Ballad and Phil Spector ‘Wall Of Sound’ production, and it also brings me so many great memories! I wrote the album in my apartment in Greenwich Village, NYC, I recorded it with French indie musicians in the left bank of Paris in the tiny and brilliant basement recording studio of the atelier clothing label APC! Such good times! Getting the metro to Rue de Rennes from Trinité – d’Estienne d’Orves on line 12, each morning, grabbing a coffee and pastry and heading in for whole days of magic with the French Musicians: Jeremy Orsel – Rhythm & Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar, Hadrien Grange – Drums.

However! One of the songs, ‘Speedball’ didn’t get done in Paris! It was done in Sydney, Australia in the Surry Hills Area… I was over there DJ’ing and I met a Sydney Indie Band and we decided to go in the studio where one of them worked! It happened to be the studio belonging to Scott Horscroft, a known and successful Australian record producer… we all mic’d and amped up and the whole song was recorded live, including my vocals… Sydney Musicians: Brock Fitzgerald – Guitar, Wade Keighran – Bass, Sam Pearton – Drums, 

The whole atmosphere was so enjoyable and yielded such great results that I decided to have Scott co-mix the album with me and wow, it came out great. I actually re-recorded and played everything on ‘These Beggar Memories’ in the control booth of Scotts studio and it is naturally so personal and up-close in it’s sound. 

When the whole mix was complete I awoke the next morning and stared out of my warehouse window, across the rooftops of Surry Hills, I put on Nina Simone’s ‘Mr Bojangles’ and was filled with one of those magic moments, where life feels perfect. I love a good rooftop view across a city and it felt so joyous to have made a record I knew was great and which I’d love for ever!

The photographs were taken early, early in the morning by my friend James Traill, outside, on the curb, waking up, going into a photo session by a different photographer. I was barely awake, in my socks! Smoking (I’ve since given up!!) and drinking coffee. The artwork layout was done by the people who’s warehouse loft I was staying in, called China Heights. 

Finally the record was mastered for vinyl, expertly by Fred Kevorkian back in NYC, he has mastered all my music for me ever since!

Thank you to all involved!

WHAT A GREAT TOUR!

October 12, 2021

Hi Everyone!

How are you all? I hope very well!

The Tour

It is now 9 days after the final show on my 28 date UK tour with THE WENDY JAMES BAND!

My first two days home were spent unpacking and sleeping! I’m just about getting back in the swing of things but there is so much to do!

I’m desperately trying to reach an empty headspace and calendar where I can just immerse myself in the constant writing of my ALBUM 10. Next week I will listen to the songs I had demo’d before setting out on tour and then move on from that. I want to make Album 10 as spectacular as I possibly can, something that will musically and lyrically amaze both you and me. I have my sights set high and my ideas are coming together for both the direction and production. 

*Please do preorder all manner of ALBUM 10 items: Vinyl, CD’s T-Shirts, Posters, rare Test Pressings, Artwork Proofs etc, as before, limited numbers apply, there are finite amounts of test pressings and artwork proofs I can receive… 

Order here: https://thewendyjames.com/product-category/wendy-james-album-10/

Playing all my varied songs on this tour The Wendy James Band has just done made me so, so happy, to play, to sing, to hear and feel all the music I’ve written and then to see you all react to it, older songs and newer songs, favorites alike. I tend to live in the moment, not the past or the future, and so it’s been exhilarating and really life affirming to meet you all and hear your stories of how you first saw me perform a gig or on television, where you were, how old you were and what it meant to you. The history I now carry with me, and in you, all the emotions and stories, I am so lucky to have lived my life like this. Thank you! 

Thank you for your reactions to the shows! To see you loving the music and the performance is everything I wish for.

Thank you for all those brilliant after-show merchandise signings/selfies/stories! Wow! … And my V. I.P. guests, who are now part of our traveling Rock n Roll family! So many faces to names have been synched! I recognize many of your names from social media comments or when you buy something from my store, but not really what you look like, now I know and it’s wonderful! We can greet each other with very happy familiarity next time! 

The Wendy James Band are so very good! We had the best fun touring around the UK (I love motorway stops and cheese sandwiches!), of course we worked very hard in rehearsals and arrived at our first show in Blackpool match fit. We rehearsed 10 hours a day for 2 weeks and then the shows themselves! Our gigs reached a level of quality you can only get when you do a lengthy tour, when you hone the music perfectly, hit cruise control and really enjoy it. You’ve now all witnessed Jordan Cook on Drums, Leo Kurunis on Bass, Andrew Saunders and Alex Ward on Guitar and Keyboards and Pip Stakem on lead Guitar! It’s a very good band! A band that can handle and achieve anything!

I have a big touring idea, which I am now, just beginning, to explore with an agent and a promoter. It would get me into international territories and bring both my old music and new music to countries outside of the UK. I will make this announcement when it’s ‘for sure’. Toward the end of this tour we just completed, I did start telling people my idea! So I know some of you know and I know it was met with 100% approval!

THANK YOU!

Mission Accomplished

So! Mission Accomplished! After 3 Covid delays my tour happened without any hitch, without anyone getting ill and in some amazing venues! Thank you to all the bookers and promoters who brought my band into their venues!

I’m just so grateful and happy to have played for you all, to have met so many of you and for it to have been such a success. We all needed this to happen, after such a long wait, missing live shows for so long and having been away from gatherings, it was so exciting, so necessary for us to all be together again. It felt so good!

Once again: Thank you.

There will be more news soon! 

So… take care, tons of love

Always

THE IMPRESSION OF NORMALCY

July 29, 2021

Shot in Rome last Saturday… Here is the video for… 

THE IMPRESSION OF NORMALCY

‘The Impression Of Normalcy’ is track 16 of my 20 Track Deluxe Album ‘QUEEN HIGH STRAIGHT’. It is a perfect speed-punk moment in the last quarter of the album! Originally I’d written it more in the vein of Nirvana: quiet verse, loud chorus and I guess it was mid-tempo. Having started in on recording rehearsals, James Sclavunos put his sticks in the air, from behind his drum kit, and said “Can we speed this fucking song up?”

So… we went to the extreme and basically thrashed and shredded this song out, I then edited it down so it’s a perfect three and a half minutes of pop speed punk!

Video by Doddywood

QUEEN HIGH STRAIGHT is out on Deluxe Double Vinyl, Deluxe CD, Standard CD and Download

Plus there is a 15% discount offered throughout my webstore: https://thewendyjames.com/store until this coming Saturday night! Code at checkout: AllJuly15

WENDY JAMES WILL (FINALLY) TOUR THE UK AUGUST, SEPTEMBER + OCTOBER 2021

July 2, 2021

TOUR PREVIEW:

When Wendy James released her 5th solo album QUEEN HIGH STRAIGHT on 1st May 2020 to critical acclaim, she was supposed to be heading out on a UK tour. But as Covid-19 hit and the world went into lockdown, Wendy had to reschedule her tour three times.

Reflecting, Wendy says, “The venues, who’ve been under extraordinary pressure to stay afloat, were inundated with every single band rescheduling! But! We did it… Thank you to the venues, the promoters and of course thank you to the National Health Service, my love to anyone and everyone who has lost someone to this pandemic, thank you to you all for getting vaccinated and helping open our collective lives again! And… Thank you to THE WENDY JAMES BAND! Most musicians have had to find other ways of money earning because they simply couldn’t work their chosen vocation… very hard indeed, but my band did what they had to do, and we’re still standing and happier than ever to be heading into rehearsals to get this mammoth setlist learnt and then hit the road! Finally!”

She will embark on a whopping 28-date tour of the UK on 26th August. “From Truro to Paisley and from Norwich to Swansea and everywhere in between!” she exclaims with her infectious enthusiasm. “Not only are we celebrating a return to live venues, we are celebrating my No.16 album QUEEN HIGH STRAIGHT, and also a different set list every night, from Transvision Vamp through all my albums! It’s a tour not to miss, and one which will not happen again, like this!”

An English singer-songwriter born in London, Wendy exploded onto the British music scene in 1988 as the fearless front woman of chart-topping alt-rockers Transvision Vamp. When the band broke up Wendy went on to collaborate with Elvis Costello, James Williamson (Iggy & the Stooges), Lenny Kaye (The Patti Smith Group) and James Sclavunos (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds), who joins her on drums and percussions for QUEEN HIGH STRAIGHT. Also joining her on this album are James Sedwards (lead guitar), Harry Bohay (bass), Alex J. Ward & Terry Edwards (horn section) and Louis Vause (accordion).

Wendy began writing QUEEN HIGH STRAIGHT after a long stretch of writing/recording/delivering/touring her previous album ‘The Price Of The Ticket’, which charted in the UK at No.14. Wendy says of the title track, “I gravitated toward some jazzy type of chords which lent a gentle lilt to the song, it sounded smooth and it reminded me of when I was a young child listening to Sergio Mendes ‘Brasil ’66’! Some of those lovely chord progressions, some of that lovely harmonizing the singers did and of course Bacharach and David.”

“Overall, my taste and style have not changed with time,” Wendy says. “The music that excites me now, ultimately, is the same as when I was starting out songwriting and back through my days in Transvision Vamp. I continue to marvel at Lou Reed and The Velvet Underground, I continue to be blown away by The Stooges, I continue to be everlastingly enthralled by Bob Dylan, but of course, the older one gets the more one discovers and I am now informed more cohesively and fully by all the music, new and old, which settles into my consciousness.

“My track listings are never altered from the order in which I write the songs, maybe it’s because it’s too tangential for me to try to shuffle songs around but really I think, in some kind of holistic way, the order in which the songs are written must surely be the very most natural order for them to be listed in. Around song 14 ‘Bliss Hotel’ I hit a wall. I did not know where the inspiration was going to come from! But then somehow, miraculously, it comes again and one pushes on through, as it turned out, to some of my favourite songs on the entire album. My perfect moment? song 18 ‘Cancel It… I’ll See Him On Monday’; it was a ‘Eureka’ moment. I ran outside and started dancing, “I’ve got it! I’ve got it!!!”

Elsewhere on the album, Wendy embraces Motown with ‘Here Comes The Beautiful One’ and ‘Little Melvin’, she returns, once again, to her favourite guitar guttural filth and sex for ‘Perilous Beauty’ and an unlikely sounding love song in ‘Chicken Street’, 90’s pop groove in ‘Ratfucking’, melancholia in ‘Testimonial’, Django Reinhardt whimsy in ‘I’ll Be Here When The Morning Comes’. On ‘The Impression Of Normalcy’, Wendy says, “Thanks to James Sclavunos, who told me to “speed the fucking song up”, I have a proper speed punk song.” Finally, track 20 ‘Kill Some Time Blues’ is the ultimate 60’s girl group number.

Wendy last toured the UK in 2019 with THE WENDY JAMES BAND opening for The Psychedelic Furs, and was a huge success.
