The Photography Of Devorah Ostrov:  11. Brian James - Lords of The New Church
The Photography Of Devorah Ostrov


11. Brian James
Lords of The New Church

I was introduced to Brian when he was in the Damned. I was introduced to him again when Nicky Turner confided to me that he was leaving the Barracudas to join Brian and Stiv in the newly formed Lords of the New Church. But it wasn't until the Lords were in the studio, recording Is Nothing Sacred?, that I actually spoke to Brian. For years I'd been scared to death of him. What do you say to someone this cool that won't sound completely stupid? Apparently, when you're alone with him in a sound booth and you've had one too many cups of tea, "Excuse me, do you know where the bathroom is?" works as a good ice-breaker. Turned out Mr. James was the nicest guy on the planet, and I've been privileged to call him a good friend ever since. I'm only mentioning all this because I don't know when or where these photos were taken. During the '80s I saw the Lords a dozen or more times all over the world but never took notes.
