|Dates connected with James:||1980s|
Orange Juice were a band that massively influenced early James (and previous incarnations). They had a number of albums in the early 1980s, the best known probably being Rip It Up. It’s rumoured that their singer James Kirk was part of the reason James chose that name. They were the band that Model Team supported in Sheffield when Tim first joined the band as a dancer in 1982.
