|Contribution/Role/Speciality:||Guitarist with Orange Juice, Influence|
Guitarist with Orange Juice, favourites of Jim, Paul and Tim. They gave James many support slots in the early eighties including some of their first shows outside Manchester. It is rumoured that part of the reason James got the name they did was in deference to Kirk, who was idolised by Paul Gilbertson.
