Overview

Wendy James is a rocker who doesn't deserve the type of obscurity she has known. In the late 1980s and early '90s, she served as lead singer for Transvision Vamp, an excellent new wave-ish band along the lines of the Divinyls and Siousxie & the Banshees. Unfortunately, Vamp never broke through commercially in the U.S., and James didn't become any better known when she pursued a solo career with Now Ain't the Time for Your Tears, composed in its entirety by Elvis Costello. Quirky power-pop numbers like "Fill In The Blanks," "London's Brilliant" and "Puppet Girl" fall short of the excellence of her work with Vamp, but they're fun, clever and appropriate for her colorful personality. For those who have never experienced either Vamp or James, Vamp's MCA release of 1991 Little Magnets Vs. the Bubble of Babble would be a better starting point. But this neglected CD isn't a bad listen at all.
