'The Jam 1982 celebrates the fire and skill of (in the words of John Weller) “The Best Fucking Band In The World” and should be an essential purchase.' Louder Than War
This richly illustrated oral history account of The Jam’s rollercoaster final year, led principally by the voice of Jam drummer Rick Buckler, contains a number of previously unseen images and takes in everything from the recording and release of final studio album The Gift and the rigours of the road to the announcement of the split, the final tours, The Tube and more.
In addition to Buckler’s memories of this final year, The Jam 1982 also brings together testimonies from Gary Crowley, producer Peter Wilson, A&R manager Dennis Munday, photographer Neil ‘Twink’ Tinning, Eddie Piller, Paolo Hewitt, Mat Osman, Belle Stars singer Jennie Matthias (‘The Bitterest Pill’), touring musicians Jamie Telford and Steve Nichol and others, to tell the tale of a single, fateful year: the year The Jam, for better or worse, went out at the very top of their game.
'Mod icons' swansong year. This superbly illustrated book makes me want to go and listen to The Jam from 1982 (like I have every year since). That's a helluva recommendation.' Classic Rock
