‘There may never be a Jam reunion but it’s reassuring to see someone as talented and passionate as Bruce Foxton being able to take these wonderful old songs out on the road and communicate so successfully with this Modern World’ - LOUDER THAN WAR
From The Jam have gained a reputation for the kind of incendiary performances that sealed the reputation of The Jam all those years ago. They will be performing ‘Sound Affects’ followed by a selection of the classic hits and great album tracks from across the fantastic catalogue produced by one of Britain’s’ seminal bands.
In November 1980 The Jam released their fifth studio album ‘Sound Affects’ featuring their second single to reach the number one spot ‘Start!’ and the acoustic masterpiece ‘That’s Entertainment’ (“It’s a piece of urban art in league with Banksy” The Quietus) considered to be one of the 500 greatest songs of all time by Rolling Stone (2004). This album often competes for the title of their best record due to its mix of 60s psychedelic rock and funk alongside a political commentary that was innovative for its time.
Celebrating the album’s 35th anniversary From The Jam, featuring original The Jam member bass player Bruce Foxton, guitarist/vocalist Russell Hastings & drummer Steve (Smiley) Barnard, will perform the album in its entirety. As well as a thrilling performance of ‘Sound Affects’ the audience can expect From The Jam to perform a selection of hits and album tracks from The Jam’s back catalogue and songs from Bruce Foxton’s own solo career. Bruce said, “The whole idea of playing an album in full has really taken off for us and has brought back so many great memories. We will also, of course, play the hits and more to make what I think will be a great night.”
