A band featuring the former bassist from the original Mod group The Jam – which took music by storm after exploding on to the punk scene in 1977 – are set to play in Hitchin this week.

From The Jam including Bruce Foxton will be playing at Club 85 this Friday as part of their ‘That’s Entertainment’ acoustic tour.

Foxton, who was an integral part of the The Jam, will be joined in stage by pianist Tom Heel and Russell Hastings.

The Jam were the sound of the British youth in the late 70s and this intimate show will be a rare opportunity to hear classic songs in a stripped-down way – while the audience can expect to hear classics such as Down In The Tube Station At Midnight, Going Underground, Town Called Malice and The Modern World as well as favourites including Strange Town, When You’re Young and Start.

He said: “We played some acoustic shows last year and it was a revelation how well the songs work acoustically.

“It’s a testament to a good song that they have stood the test of time and don’t need a full band and big production in order to work so well.”

Foxton also returned to the studio to record a new album titled ‘Smash The Clock’ for release on Friday, April 22.
