All Mod Cons – 35th Anniversary Tour

The Picture Dome, Holmfirth /
Following 2012’s ‘In The City’ tour, Bruce Foxton and From The Jam announce the ‘All Mod Cons’ 35th Anniversary Tour - September–December 2013.
On Saturday 5th October The Picture Dome, Holmfirth will be pounding with the sound of 1978 as The Jam bass player Bruce Foxton and his band From the Jam perform the classic album ‘All Mod Cons’ in its entirety. The gig is part of a 3 month tour that celebrates the 35th anniversary of All Mod Cons.
As well as ‘Down In The Tube Station At Midnight’ and ‘A Bomb In Wardour Street’ the band are also excited about playing ‘Billy Hunt’, ‘Mr Clean’ and the second single released from the album ‘David Watts’ originally penned by Ray Davies of The Kinks. “The energy in rehearsals is great and we’re really looking forward to getting back on the road!” says Foxton.

The Jam exploded onto the punk scene in 1977 delivering their ferocious mission statement - debut single ‘In The City’ – and in 1978 released their third album ‘All Mod Cons’. The Jam became the sound of The British youth and one of the greatest and biggest selling bands in British history. In 2000, Q magazine placed ‘All Mod Cons’ at Number 50 in its list of the 100 Greatest British Albums Ever.
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. From The Jam will be performing All Mod Cons in its entirety followed by a selection of the classic hits and great album tracks from across the fantastic catalogue produced by one of Britain’s’ seminal bands.
Talking about the tour singer and guitarist Russell Hasting says “Bruce has often commented on the general vibe in the studio and the feeling that "they were onto a good thing" as every track stood out and was fun to do!When we were recording his ‘Back In The Room’ album, the recording process was likened to that of All Mod Cons and we thought, why not play the album front to back as it had never been done before. Also tracks like ‘The Place I Love’ and ‘Fly’ were never in the live set.“

“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” LouderThanWar
