The sounds of The Jam’s heyday will be resonating around The Meres leisure centre next month when their bass player’s band From The Jam take to the stage.
The band will be performing the classic 1978 album ‘All Mod Cons’ in its entirety at the gig on Friday, November 15, as part of their three-month tour that celebrates the 35th anniversary of The Jam’s third LP issue .
As well as ‘Down In The Tube Station At Midnight’ and ‘A Bomb In Wardour Street’, the band are also excited about playing ‘Billy Hunt’, ‘Mr Clean’ and the second single released from the album ‘David Watts’, originally penned by Ray Davies of The Kinks.
Bruce said: “The energy in rehearsals is great and we’re really looking forward to getting back on the road.”
The Jam exploded on to the punk scene in 1977 with their debut album ‘In The City’, which was followed by ‘This is The Modern World’ and then ‘All Mod Cons’.
In 2000, Q magazine placed ‘All Mod Cons’ at Number 50 in its list of the 100 Greatest British Albums Ever.
From The Jam have gained a reputation for the kind of incendiary ‘live’ performances that sealed the reputation of the original trio all those years ago.
From The Jam will be performing All Mod Cons from start to finish, 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.
