Having celebrated The Jam’s musical legacy by touring the classic albums All Mod Cons, Setting Sons and Sound Affects, Bruce Foxton and co, From The Jam, are back with a set that will feature all of the greatest hits.


“There may never be a Jam reunion but it’s reassuring to see someone as talented and passionate as Bruce Foxton being able to take these wonderful old songs out on the road and communicate so successfully with this Modern World” – Louder Than War (photo by Derek-D-Souza).

It will include rare B sides that Bruce says will give “the most ardent fans what they want”.

The new tour will start on September 30 in Birmingham and will include Guildford at G Live on December 2, 2016.

Original Jam bassist Bruce Foxton and guitarist/vocalist Russell Hastings tour as From The Jam bringing The Jam experience to fans worldwide.

The ‘As and Bs’ tour plans to include all the fans’ favourites, as well as rare tracks such as Just Who Is The 5 O’clock Hero, Carnation, Aunties and Uncles and Life From A Window.

The band say that they are looking forward to playing The Dreams of Children, the B side to Going Underground that was originally intended to be an A side, were it not for a mix up at the pressing plant.

The crowd funded album Smash The Clock is to be released on May 20, and it features guest appearances from Paul Weller and Wilko Johnson.

With Smash The Clock, Bruce and Russell are said to have captured From The Jam’s inimitable live energy on record.

Bruce said that the meaning of title track Smash The Clock is simply that “good music is ageless and timeless”.

Like Bruce’s last full length album 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 says: “Its success was made possible by you the public getting involved, for which we can’t thank them enough.”
