From the Jam featuring former The Jam bassist Bruce Foxton, legendary vocalist and guitarist Russell Hastings, and drummer Mike Randon, are celebrating 35 years since the release of The Gift, The Jam’s sixth and final album with a special series of shows, in which they will be playing a selection of songs from ‘The Gift’.
Released in 1982 on Polydor, The Gift was one of The Jam’s most successful albums, reaching No 1 in the UK album chart. Produced by Peter Wilson, the album contains one of the band’s most well-known hits, ‘Town Called Malice’.
Bruce Foxton’s new album ‘Smash The Clock’, released in May 2016 was co-written with From The Jam band mate Russell Hastings and featured guest appearances from Paul Weller, Wilko Johnson and Paul Jones. The album debuted in the UK Top 40 chart and was recorded at Paul Weller’s Black Barn studios.
Like Bruce’s previous full length ‘Back In The Room’ (2012), the album was crowd-funded through Pledge Music, with a campaign in which fans could purchase items such as handwritten lyrics, signed CDs, LPs, artwork, etc.
The band say:
“Its success was made possible by you the public getting involved, for which we can’t thank them enough.”
