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.
The Gift’s rad single ‘Town Called Malice
In addition to Buckler’s memories of this final year, The Jam 1982 also brings together testimonies from producer Peter Wilson, A&R manager Dennis Munday, photographer
Neil ‘Twink’ Tinning, NME journalist Paolo Hewitt, Belle Stars singer Jennie Matthias, 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.
