The Jam had amazing chart success with 18 singles and 7 albums to make the top 40 in the United Kingdom from their debut in 1977 to their break up in 1982.
From The Jam have gained a reputation for the kind of incendiary ‘live’ performances that sealed the reputation of The Jam all those years ago.
Audiences can expect to hear classic Jam hits such as Down In The Tube Station At Midnight, Going Underground, Town Called Malice and The Modern World as well as some live favourites and songs from Bruce’s solo career.?
From the Jam features Bruce Foxton from the original Jam line up. In The Jam, he and drummer Rick Buckler were the driving force, power and rhythm section behind singer, guitarist, and songwriter Paul Weller. Bruces versatility is evident, taking lead vocals on David Watts (The Kinks) and News Of The World, which was one from his catalogue of own compositions. Foxtons most notable work being Smithers-Jones, done with bass/guitar/drums.
After The Jam split in '82, Foxton pursued a solo career. He had a hit with the single Freak and collaborated with other musicians, until he got the call from Stiff Little Fingers' Jake Burns,staying with with SLF for fifteen years, recording four albums.
In 1994 Bruce toured with Bruce Watson, Mark Brzezicki (Big Country) and Simon Townshend (The Who) in 2006 as The Casbah Club supporting The Who in the U.K and Europe.
In From The Jam, Bruce is joined by Russell Hastings on lead vocal and guitar. His passion and understanding of The Jam's history is second to none and has toured the world playing to packed houses of Jam fans for years.
The Jam fans have openly accepted Russell as the man that fills Paul's shoes admirably and respectfully!
