Mishra was born in Rourkela, India, on 30 July 1966, and has lived in
England since the age of three. White Town is often regarded as a one-hit wonder
for its 1997 song "Your Woman", which reached #1 in the UK Singles Chart in
January of that year, and #23 in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.
"Your Woman" is a reworking of the 1932 Bing Crosby song "My Woman", composed by
Crosby (lyrics), and Irving Wallman and Max Wartell (music and lyrics).[citation

version of "My Woman" on 29 November 1932 with the Lew Stone and the Monseigneur
Band in London. The Bowlly version was featured in the Pennies from Heaven film
White Town were formed by Mishra in 1989 after he saw The Pixies play. Initially
there were other members on guitar, bass and drums playing support gigs for
various bands including Primal Scream. In 1990 he released his first, self
financed, record, White Town EP on 7" vinyl. This featured Nick Glyn-Davis on
drums and Sean Deegan on bass with Mishra on guitar and vocals. Glyn-Davis left
and was replaced live by a drum machine and Leon Wilson on guitar. The rest of
the band drifted away in Autumn 1990 and from then on Mishra mainly worked on
his own, using other musicians to record with, including Gary Thatcher on guitar
of the Derby band The Beekeepers.
Mishra, a straight edger and ex-Marxist, often incorporates political concerns
in his songs veiled in terms of personal relationships (as in his only hit).
After a troubled working relationship with EMI, Mishra was dropped from the
label in 1997. Since then, he has gone back to working with indie labels such as
Parasol Records. His album, 2000's Peek & Poke, received moderately enthusiastic
reviews but sold poorly compared to his major label work.
In 2005, White Town contributed the song "The Pnac Cabal" to the charity album,
Voyces United for UNHCR.
The "A New Surprise" EP was released in September 2006 by the Swedish indie
label Heavenly Pop Hits, and was followed up by the album Don't Mention the War,
which launched Mishra's own Bzangy Records label. Mishra currently lives in
