Profit Is Overrated presents
St. James Infirmary, of Ashington, Northumberland was formed in the mid-1980s by songwriter and multi-instrumentalist g.w.lang and has been active ever since. Over the last 25 years SJI have released untold numbers of cassettes, CDRs, and 7" and 12 vinyl records; a legacy of DIY music production that has few equals anywhere in the world.
SJI performances can consist of g.w.lang on his own, or with a floating roster of collaborators (the number of present and former members of SJI stretches well into the thirties). Being in SJI is a bit like being in the Hotel California: you can check out but you can never leave.
"Sometimes whimsical, sometimes melancholic, sometimes abrasive, but always following their own star; SJI are the baby, pet, and brainchild of g.w.lang, and he is the one consistent element of everything they produce."
