‘Your Woman’, 1997

White Town (really one-man-show Jyoti Mishra) found hit success in the US and UK with ‘Your Woman’, a song that partially recounted his youthful obsession with a lesbian. Despite EMI signing him to their Chrysalis subsidiary, no amount of backing could conjure interest in his subsequent releases, and so White Town quickly went to recording for indie labels, with a new album allegedly scheduled for 2006.
