Love with a Passion Called Hate
Paperback (Author Sean Egan) Apr 2018
THE JAM WERE THE RUNTS WHO BECAME KINGS. Initially derided by New Wavers for being uncool suburbanites, Paul Weller, Bruce Foxton and Rick Buckler unexpectedly proceeded to fulfil every promise ever made by punk as they took social protest and cultural authenticity to the top of the charts. The three-piece from Woking, Surrey racked up 18 hits, among them the timeless likes of In the City, Down in the Tube Station at Midnight, Going Underground and Town Called Malice. Their classic albums included Setting Sons and Sound Affects. Yet their musical excellence was only the half of it: they prided themselves on remaining accessible to their fans, disdaining Americanisation and spurning commercial compromise. Although it was a blow to their army of followers, their split at the end of 1982 was hailed as the perfect illustration of their integrity: a bowing out at the top, regardless of financial temptation. Their story, though, was more complicated and sometimes less honourable than how it appeared from the outside, with the group’s vaunted values contrasted by private recrimination and duplicity. Sean Egan has spoken to a raft of insiders to provide the definitive Jam biography. Via access to recording producers, music label staff and all three members of the Jam, he has uncovered the full truth about a remarkable band.
This Day In Music’s guide to The Jam (Paperback) October 2018
Signed by Rick Buckler
Jam drummer Rick Buckler was one-third of the powerhouse sound of The Jam along with Paul Weller and Bruce Foxton. The group had 18 consecutive UK To 40 singles from their debut in 1977 to their break up in December 1982, including four No 1 hits. More than any other group, The Jam kept the tradition of three-minute, hook- driven British guitar pop alive providing a blueprint for generations of bands to come. Rick talks to us through the formation of The Jam and their early days - being signed by Polydor, their first No 1 record, the video shoots, tours and beyond. Buckler also picks the 50 greatest Jam tracks and tells us how they were written, recorded and the stories behind every one of these classic songs. This book also critiques every Jam studio album as well as listing every Jam tour, The Jam on TV, Awards, video locations and more.
