British rocker TIM BOOTH is still coming to terms with his shock decision to reform his band JAMES.
The LAID singer insists he had no intention to reunite the band, and the decision was only taken after the original members started jamming together again.
He explains, "If you had asked me in the summer would James get back together, I would have said absolutely not, not a chance. It was a load of synchronistic events that took place over about a month."
The band will play a string of dates in the UK, starting on the 21 April (07) in Glasgow.
The SIT DOWN anthem makers aren't the only band to reform this week (begs22JAN) - Rage Against The Machine, Crowded House and THE JESUS + MARY CHAIN have also announced plans to perform live again.
