MORE than 40 years on from The Jam’s penultimate album, the original bassist Bruce Foxton will be celebrating its legacy in Warrington.

Led by Bruce and his long-time collaborator Russell Hastings, From The Jam will roll back the years with songs from Sound Affects that took the 80s by storm.

They will visit the Parr Hall on Thursday, April 7, 2022.

Featuring two of the band’s most-loved singles – Start! and That’s Entertainment – Sound Affects reached number two in the charts, left an indelible mark on popular music and is said to be Paul Weller’s favourite.

Chris Persoglio, venue and events Manager at Parr Hall, said: “It’s incredible to think that The Jam’s Sound Affects record is more than 40 years old now.

“Talking about passing the test of time – iconic songs like That’s Entertainment have become all-time favourites and when you go to a show like this you instantly see what The Jam’s music still means to people even decades on.”

From The Jam launched in 2007 as a way to both revisit the group’s classic songs and work on new material.

Since then they have performed around the world to sell-out crowds and reached the UK album charts with 2017’s From The Jam Live.

From The Jam will be joined by very special guests The Selecter led by Pauline Black and original member Arthur ‘Gaps’ Hendrickson. Pauline is one of the very few women in the 2-Tone scene.

She is often referred to as ‘The Queen of Ska’ and her band will be marking the 40th anniversary of the album, Too Much Pressure.
