James William Hindle - Five digressions

James William Hindle

"Five digressions"

We bought James William Hindle's debut album on trust in his record label (Badman, which had just released albums by Mark Kozelek and Paula Frazer) and in the beautiful sleeve à la Red House Painters. When we got home, we looked at the booklet and found out that the artwork was done by our comrade Matt Dornan from Comes with a Smile (fantastic English music magazine). That was definitely a very good start. As for the music, we totally fell for James's folk songs with direct catchy melodies and we loved his very soft voice, and his cover of the Bee Gees' "I Started A Joke" was such a gem! We've followed him since then.

These are the five words that James William Hindle picked:

Cats is love is love is cats. Cats is my beautiful brother and my lover and my special little bonnie.

Something I do badly but love to do. I don't do enough of it; spend the day looking forward to doing it and then get frustrated when I can't and then when i wake up, that I can't keep doing it!

Swimming in Vermont, bus rides in the peak district, sitting in my garden, cornish sea breezes, walking with Haggis, snorkling in Angelsey...not being sat in an un-air-conditioned office building!

I always sing about them for some reason, and I take them obsesseively. Think it's cos I am scared to let memories fade away. But then I end up not being able to get rid of memories I don't want to keep, and lose countless photgraphs... is that ironic? probably... according to a good friend I also always sing about the corners of furniture...

Obvious I know, but not to be undersetimated. To paraphrase will oldham - 'am song, and song is of me'.
