White Town

The "band" White Town consists of Jyoti Mishra, who writes and records the music almost entirely on his own, with occasional help from other musicians. Although best -- in fact, almost entirely -- known for the fluke 1997 hit "Your Woman," White Town's mix of musical, political, and social influences makes Mishra one of the more intriguing, although frustratingly inconsistent, musicians in '90s indie pop.

Mishra was born in Rourkela, India, on July 30, 1966; his family emigrated to England when he was three years old. The name White Town was inspired by his experiences growing up as an Indian in a small English village. Mishra began playing the piano at age 12, and by his mid-teens, he was playing keyboards in a local band. After leaving that group, he formed a one-man synth band. Inspired by the Wedding Present and the general resurgence of guitar-based pop music in the mid-'80s, Mishra taught himself guitar and formed the first edition of White Town in early 1989. Originally, it was a four-person indie band in the classic post-C86 style, and played gigs supporting bands like the Sea Urchins and the pre-dance Primal Scream. The group released their first EP, White Town (featuring an eponymous song), on Mishra's own Satya Records in 1990. The 7" EP and a flexidisc that came out about the same time attracted the attention of Parasol Records, a northern-Illinois-based indie that was just starting out. A White Town single, "All She Said," was the label's fourth release. The rest of Mishra's band left around this time, and the next White Town release, the EP Alain Delon, was a solo recording. All future White Town records would feature only Mishra, playing nearly all the instruments with only occasional outside help.

Two more EPs followed in 1992, Fairweather Friend and Bewitched, before Mishra finally released White Town's first full-length album in 1994; the title Socialism, Sexism and Sexuality neatly encapsulated the sometimes strident lyrical concerns of the songs therein. After the release of the album, Mishra grew tired of the limitations of the indie-guitar format and started working again with synthesizers and samplers. Two years' worth of experiments linking samples and guitars were released, in 1996, as the EP Abort, Retry, Fail? One of that EP's songs was "Your Woman," a song inspired in part by Mishra's teenage infatuation with a lesbian friend, based around a nagging trumpet sample from Lew Stone's 1932 jazz hit "My Woman." This song got EMI interested enough to sign White Town to their Chrysalis label, which released the full-length Women in Technology in 1997. Though the re-released "Your Woman" was a hit in both the U.S. and the U.K., interest in follow-up singles was nil, and Mishra happily went back to Parasol, where he released the Another Lover EP in 1998. The third White Town album, Peek and Poke, received mixed reviews upon its 2000 release. ~ Stewart Mason, Rovi

Good band i like them
It always amazes me that people don't understand this is an artist bio, not the track you are listening to. Stop saying how much you 'like this song', nobody knows wtf you are talking about.
This song was inspired by an infatuation he had with a lesbian friend he had when he was a teenager read the bio makes more sense then :)
AWESOME
Brit-pop flash....*si g h * . Also, I wish there was a way to report these stupid chain mail spam posts. So bloody annoying.

Kiss your left hand say your crushes name 3x close your hand say a school day post this on 15 different songs and your crush will ask you out on that day.
Love your woman
MUST READ THIS!!!! I'd just like to say to all you people posting these comments saying your gonna die or date your crush are not true. You will not actually die or fall in love. Trust me it's only a joke and I can't believe people are desperate enough to do that. I read one and didn't die..... I mean really people are so stupid out there!!! Someone just started it to freak people out. So can you please just chill out and stop? Repost to get word round
STOP SPAM!! >:(
Don't read this because it actually works you will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life however if you don't post you will die in 2 days now you've starting reading reading this don't stop this so scary this so scary put this in five songs in 143 minutes you will f6 and your lovers name will appear on your screen in big letters this so scary because it actually works
He wanted to go out with a lesbian but he couldn't be her woman

darlenelacou r
What do you mean Greg? I thought these guys were just very interested in helping me to have the best day of my life.
Hey Pandora -- a flag button for comments would be great. The chain letter spam is getting pretty ridiculous.
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of you life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually work
Indeed as other people have said, he's singing from a girls perspective
This freaked me out This isn't fake. Apparently, if you copy and paste this on ten comments in the next ten minutes, you will have the best day of your life tomorrow. You will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain you will see a little dead girl in your room tonight.
trujake be nice
