THE COMPLETE JAM
FEATURING ADAM BARTON, MARK STELFOX & MIKE GREATBANKS
A pre Christmas Special - One of the leading Jam Tribute Bands will be paying homage to The Three Kings FOXTON, WELLER AND BUCKLER.
The Jam in their day, they were legit superstars-- bigger stars than the Clash and nearly on par with them as populist standard bearers of the punk movement. In a broader sense, they're the band most responsible for carrying the torch of concise British guitar pop from its near-death in the early 1970s into the 1980s, where they passed it to the Smiths and ultimately on to the legion of Britpop and trad-rock bands that mushroomed in the 1990s. Their place in the punk pantheon is unique, too: They were well-dressed and skilled at their instruments, played Rickenbackers, and took most of their cues from 60s mod rock and soul, spawning a legion of revivalists in the process. Most of the credit these days goes to the band's primary guitarist, singer and songwriter, Paul Weller, but drummer Rick Buckler and bassist Bruce Foxton were at the very least as responsible for their sound, providing an uncommonly muscular foundation for Weller's piercing examinations of youth in a collapsed empire.
Tonight, Without a doubt, you will hear the most comprehensive Jam live collection. The Complete Jam will perform a large selection of their single A- and B-sides.
