5860438From The Jam
DateThursday 24th October 2019
DescriptionLegendary former "The Jam" bassist Bruce Foxton and vocalist & guitarist Russell Hastings will be joined alongside their band mates Mike Randon (drums) and Andy Fairclough (Hammond & piano) on a UK tour this spring/summer. From The Jam is comprised of legendary former 'The Jam' bassist Bruce Foxton, vocalist & guitarist Russell Hastings, drummer Mike Randon, and Andy Fairclough on Hammond and piano. Over the past 11 years From The Jam have toured relentlessly, having played almost 1000 headline shows in the UK since their inception in 2007. Throughout this time, they've gained a reputation for the kind of incendiary live performances that sealed the reputation of The Jam all those years ago, being described as "incredibly exciting" by the Daily Mirror and "sounding dynamic as ever" by the Daily Record. In 2007 Russell Hastings was fronting 'The Gift' (which featured Rick Buckler) when he was joined on stage by Bruce Foxton (who was touring with Casbah Club) for a 'one off' performance. This performance sparked the genesis of From the Jam, and an enduring partnership between Foxton & Hastings. Off-stage Foxton and Hastings wrote the album, 'Back In The Room' released in 2012, which received critical acclaim and solidified Foxton & Hastings as an excellent and contemporary song writing duo. They then returned to the studio in 2016 to record and release 'Smash The Clock', which reached number 31 in the UK charts. The album also entered the independent album chart at number 4, whilst the vinyl edition entered the vinyl chart at number 7. On December 1st 2017, to celebrate 10 years since From The Jam formed, Bruce Foxton and Russell Hastings released From 'The Jam Live!', featuring songs performed at various venues across the UK.
