E JAM’S classic album Sound Affects can be heard in full at Leamington’s Assembly on Saturday October 24.
To celebrate the album’s 35th anniversary, From The Jam, featuring original Jam bassist Bruce Foxton and guitarist/vocalist Russell Hastings, will perform the album in its entirety.
The Jam’s fifth album was released in November 1980. It features their second single to reach number one spot Start!, the acoustic favourite That’s Entertainment, named one of the 500 greatest songs of all time by Rolling Stone, and Pretty Green,
which former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher named his clothing label after.
The album has maintained its popularity down the years and along with All Mod Cons is hailed among the best of the group’s six studio outings.
From The Jam will also be perform other hits from The Jam’s back catalogue, together with songs from Foxton’s own solo career.
Foxton 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.”
From the Jam are busy preparing to return to the studio to record a new album titled Smash The Clock. The news was announced on crowdfunding site PledgeMusic.
Foxton said: “The success of our most recent album ‘Back In The Room’ was made possible by Pledge Music and, in turn, by you the public getting involved, for which we can’t thank you enough. The initial demos are sounding great and Russ and I can’t wait to start recording in early January. As on the last album we will have a few guest appearances, which we’re really excited about.”
