THE WENDY JAMES ALBUM 10 RECORDING STUDIO VISIT
Of course any purchase you make goes toward the enormous climb it is, each time, to afford to record an album… I don’t have a record label or a huge amount of savings to make this easy! It’s purely down to what I earn… so, I Thank you in advance and I promise the music will not disappoint, I’m sure you know that!!
Yes, indeed! I have added to the store 2 Hoodies! The ‘1989’ Wendy James/Transvision Vamp Tour Hoodie and the ‘Revolution Baby’ Wendy James / Transvision Vamp Hoodie AND the Wendy James / Transvision Vamp ‘Icon’ T-Shirt! They are amazing! The ‘Icon’ t-shirt is rapidly becoming a best seller, along side the ‘Kurt Shirt’ and the hoodies are just so luxurious! The ‘1989’ is incredible, in as much that with your help, my agents, my old managers help and various online data bases, I managed to compile every gig we played in the breakout year of 1989 – a full world tour! So for all of you who attended one or more of these shows, then this hoodie is for you! The ‘Revolution Baby’ hoodie is in black and I love it so much! I love the shot of me and I love the logo on the back with lyrics from the song ‘Revolution Baby’.
The other two new items in the store are 2 companion posters!
The Wendy James / Transvision Vamp ‘If Looks Could Kill’ poster… this is the image which is on the ‘Kurt Shirt’ and was Transvison Vamp’s tour t-shirt in 1991 to promote Little Magnets versus The Bubble Of Babble. The ‘Icon’ poster is literally the companion to the ‘Icon’ T-Shirt and is simply one of my favorite photos of all time. Both posters in ‘silk matte’ finish and A2 in size… WONDERFUL!

In case you’d forgotten (!!) Here are the reviews for QUEEN HIGH STRAIGHT:
“packed with 20 songs, remarkably filler-free, brimming with colourful vocabulary, catty character study (a Supremes-y Little Melvin), melodic excellence and stylistic dexterity… There’s everything from Bitter Sweet MOR (Testimonial) to kitsch-pop (Ratfucking), but few nail flat-out punk rock as convincingly as does James on Perilous Beauty and The Impression of Normalcy. She means it, man, and it’s a joy throughout.” – 4/5 MOJO
“A superior collection of cosmopolitan pop music, the 20-song set is both catchy and complex. “I spend each day in splendid isolation, the quintessential intersection of nothing,” she sings on the waltz-time wonder that is Free Man Walk. In doing so, she might just have written the anthem that best describes the lives of everyone who hears it.” – The Telegraph
“A Motown flecked ode” (Little Melvin) – The Times
“A characteristically ambitious album, a double, 20 songs… a varied retro-pop clutch; James knows her way around the chords, and how to keep things moving. But the charm lies in their personality…” – Metro
“Written, produced and mixed by (ex-Transivision Vamp) Wendy James fronting a strong band and dabbling in a dizzying variety of styles.” – Classic Rock
“stylish, vintage sounds, in thrall to the Velvet Underground, Bob Dylan and 1960s pop.” – 4/5 Mail on Sunday
“Wendy gets the last laugh with an up-for-it 20-song double album of punk, rock & roll and general mayhem. Just as energetic as the Vamps, the songs are sharper than ever.” – Daily Star
“James specialising in a Stooges belligerence as she rampages across half the album as if about to wreak terrible vengeance on the speakers. There’s an insouciant poise throughout, as James ensures her devilment is backed up by strong tunes… It’s impressive, showcasing what an under-rated writer and producer James has matured into.” – Classic Pop
“Reflective music from a real queen… an album for James fans and newcomers alike.” – Vive Le Rock
