The Jam – Strange Town (1979)

The third post on Bradley Wiggins’ “mod night”.

By 1979, The Jam were my favourite band and obsession.

I’m going to make the case for 1979 being their peak year. Sure, 1978 with All Mod Cons (“Down in the Tube Station” and the rest) has a strong claim but the next year is the killer.

“Strange Town” and “When You’re Young” are two of the greatest records of all time and “Setting Sons” never fails to hit the mark (for two examples check here and here).

The original single then an unbelievable live version from Bingley Hall on their last tour in 1982!
