About this deal

Inspired by playing the new songs live, the band decided to gather in a circle and record live-in-the-studio [8] at Ridge Farm Studios in Capel, Surrey with engineer Gary Langan. In March 2000, the band revealed they had been writing new material and planned to record later in the year, with the aim of releasing an album in January 2001. He expanded: "It's their tightest, freshest, most contemporary batch of songs, weatherproofed to stand the test of time.

Two versions were released on CD: one with "Make It Alright" and "So Swell", and the other with "Stand" and a live version of "The Shining". ChartAttack wrote that fans of the band's earlier hits, such as "Sit Down" and "Laid", would be "disappointed with this disc," however, "longtime James fans should find much to enjoy.English Beefcake" stars a man who ends relationships, while being hesitant in causing pain as a result of them. English Beefcake" and "Getting Away with It (All Messed Up)" were included on the band's third compilation album The Collection (2004). Playlouder's Sarah Bee considered it a "more low-key" affair that was "less brash" than Millionaires.

A year after its release, it occurred to Booth that the song was about his son, whose middle name was Daniel, and his goddaughter Grace.Vocalist Tim Booth left the band after their December UK tour; the final show of which was released as the Getting Away with It. Although he doesn’t play any instruments, he’s so life-like that there’s already speculation about his “personality”.

Andrew Paine of NME considered it the "best James record in a long while and there are some near-inspirational moments. Getting Away with It (All Messed Up)" premiered on BBC Radio 1 on 18 May 2001; the band appeared on Later. Though noting it wasn't as "adventurous" of a release as Wah Wah is, the band made a record "whose songs are often times spacious and funky at the same time. At the end of November, the band played a few shows in Spain and Portugal, [36] leading up to a UK tour in December. Getting Away with It (All Messed Up)" was released as a single in late June, followed a week later by Pleased to Meet You on 2 July through Mercury Records.This is about finding a way to represent our collective spirit,” says James frontman Tim Booth, discussing the band’s curious new figurehead. The Shining", "Getting Away with It (All Messed Up)" and "Alaskan Pipeline" were engineered by James Loughrey.

Fine" is a percussion-led song that is followed by "Getting Away with It (All Messed Up)", a slow-building indie rock track with a psychedelic bridge section. The Shining", "Senorita", "Gaudi", "What Is It Good For" and "Getting Away with It (All Messed Up)" were recorded at House in the Woods in Bletchingley. Most of the finished album was made up from live takes and demos that were made before recording with Eno. The following month, the band revealed they were in the process of recording with Brian Eno, [4] doing pre-production.The UK special edition included the bonus songs "Gaudi" and "What Is It Good For" as 9th and 10th tracks. Though the band had planned to use a different producer for the main sessions, [3] Eno and guitarist/violinist Saul Davies were enlisted to produce most of the recordings.
