À propos de moi

White Star Liners formed in the summer of 2006 after Jim Duncan and James Harvey spent a week in Ted Hughes’s Yorkshire Farmhouse on a songwriting course with Ray Davies. Yes, that Ray Davies. The week was spent productively writing some new songs, drinking ale and befriending a wild haired scouse called Paul Cullen who promised to offer his services when required. In a moment of euphoria they decided it was the right time to form a band. The first obstacle they had to overcome was the fact that despite playing an epic version of Shangri-la on the final night of the course, complete with Ray Davies humming the brass parts, the chief Kink declined the offer of being rhythm guitarist in the group. They have since found out he may have had slightly bigger fish to fry, like a basking shark.

Undeterred the band pressed on, knowing that they needed a name before the magic could happen. After discarding many monikers they named themselves after a now defunct company who specialised in grand ideas and noble efforts that tended to end in disaster. “A sure fire recipe for a successful band” they were heard to tell anyone who would listen.

Now armed with a name, and more time after the sad demise of their previous rock and roll band Winteria (R.I.P), the James' began work on songs for their debut album. This was to be called The Rural Electrification because they thought that was a good name. Whilst working on the songs White Star Liners made their live debut, and as they do not do things by halves it was decided that they would hop over the Atlantic and play their first gig in New York. The band have subsequently performed at the Cavern in Liverpool and have tested the water of local opinion by playing some of the songs at various open mics around both East and West Sussex, which is technically two counties.

In the summer of 2008 the band decamped to Tumbo's Pipe Studios (Harv's house) and recorded 12 songs. These were then whisked off to Liverpool to be mixed and mastered by the multi talented John Murray. A good friend of the band Gareth "the chat" Wellock kindly did some lovely artwork, for no personal gain other than beer, and the record was ready to be unleashed on the world. The two James' were joined by Dan "the Winteria Thunder" Sinclair and Simon "Villareal" Parker onstage at the Prince Albert in December for their album launch show. A member of the audience was heard to say “That was the best thing I’ve ever heard and I’ve seen Chris de Burgh live.”

The band are now buying Christmas presents and coming up with a fiendish plan for the New Year. Keep checking the myspace and this website for more details…See you in 2009.
