REWIND: Booth And The Bad Angel - 'I Believe'

Time once again to rewind back exactly 20 years ago for more of the wonderful music that graced the charts in 1996. If you weren't around or were too young to remember the mid 90s, consider this a lesson of enlightenment. If you (like me) were lucky enough to experience it all first time around, then these posts make a fine nostalgic blast from the blast. 

Booth And The Bad Angel was a project that saw Tim Booth of the legendary Manchester band James join forces with American film score composer Angelo Badalamenti. Their self-titled 1996 album also featured ex-Suede man Bernard Butler on guitar. After a number of live performances, Butler apparently offered Booth the chance to form a new band with him, but the singer declined, opting to spend his time recording new material with James instead. The majestic, strident 'I Believe' reached number 25 in the UK singles chart.
