Description

Signing to The Sisters Of Mercy''s own Merciful Release record label, James Ray And The Performance released three cult EPs between 1986 and 1989, before James Ray left to form James Rays Gangwar at the end of 1989. Making an immediate impact with their visceral live shows, and taking a far more rock orientated approach than the industrial/dance/rock hybrid pursued by The Performance, Gangwar released ''Another Million Dollars'', backed by ''Hell Blonde Chiara'', at the end of 1989. "Without Conscience'' backed with "Destination Assassination'' was released by Merciful Release on 12" in 1990, and continued many of the themes developed by The Performance, but with a more brutal, and aggressive guitar based attack, joining the samples, sequencers and relentless drum machine. James Ray finally issued his full-length debut album in 1992 with "Dios Est De Nuestro Lado" (Spanish for ''God Is On Our side''), kicking off with the seven minute single, ''Rev Rev Lowider'', an electronic ''Born To Be Wild'' for the end of the millennium. Inevitable comparisons were made with label boss Andrew Eldritch and The Sisters Of Mercy, but fans and critics alike were at last recognizing the singer''s unique talent, with positive press from everyone from Melody Maker to The Times.
