From The Jam
Dave’s Stage (Main Stage), Saturday 2016
Original The Jam bassist Bruce Foxton and guitarist and vocalist Russell Hastings now tour as From The Jam. Bruce’s power and force still drives the classics with the same fullness and intensity as they have for the last three decades. Russell Hastings is the only frontman other than Weller to have worked with both Bruce and Rick Buckler (former The Jam drummer). His passion and understanding of The Jam has entitled him to be credited by fans and critics alike as the perfect candidate to respectfully and admirably slip into the shoes of former The Jam frontman Paul Weller.
Following on from the 2012 release of the critically acclaimed Back In The Room, Bruce and Russell have been back in the studio. They’ve recorded a new album titled Smash The Clock, which will be released in 2016. As with the last album, there will be more exciting guest appearances. You can expect to hear a mixture of new material and Jam classics at Wychwood next Summer on the Saturday of the festival.
