The Jam - live performance on the tv show Something Else.
Still sounds effin' great!
Definitely my favorite band, though not my favorite song of their's. Great energy, as always. This is from the period before Bruce Foxton dropped the Rickenbacker basses for the Fenders.
“Any guitar and any bass drum.” Sums up first attempts at being in bands as a kid.
This is also the period where Paul Weller used a Peavey Backstage 30 as his main recording and gigging amp. It was borrowed from Status Quo and never given back. The Marshalls are for show.
One can see it behind the Marshall in some angles.
yes. Not the only only clip on You Tube either. From 1979 much of the studio recorded electric guitar was also from the Backstage 30. He did use the big Marshalls for the tours and the the backstage 30 was also there blended in the mix.
I remember buying this single from the bargain bin back then. Great band.
Never got the fuss about his solo stuff, though.
Weller’s guitar playing and tone were sometimes the main weak link the Jam live recordings. The energy was always fantastic, but the playing sometimes sloppy and the tone a trebly blurred mess. Rick and Bruce pretty much always totally nailed the rhythm section and Foxtons bass tone was so big and percussive it’s less noticeable.
