Hey Ma: Waterfall.

Hey Ma is the tenth studio album by Mancunian (Manchester England) rock band James

It was released on April 7, 2008.


Curious facts:

A somewhat dubious honour that can be attributed to James is that many of its support acts went on to find great success of their own, eclipsing that of James itself.

In 1988 it was supported by The Stone Roses and the Happy Mondays (James went on to support the Happy Mondays only two years later).

Nirvana was the support act for a show in 1991 - only a month later, Nevermind reached number one in the Billboard Album Charts.

For their 1993 tour, Radiohead was the support.

After James' hiatus, the trend continued. Third Eye Blind supported in 1997; The Corrs, Theaudience and Stereophonics in 1998; Supergrass, Cast and Doves in 1999.

In 2000 they were supported by Coldplay: a month later its breakthrough single Yellow was released; a month after that its debut album Parachutes went to #1 in the UK album chart. In 2001 it was supported by Turin Brakes.
