The Jam in Paris.

Very nice messages and I feel "up" again! Thank you mates!

Well, actually, when we listened the Jam in the early 80's, it was, in France, a well kept secret and we had maybe more pleasure to be the happy few, really. All started for me with the brass riff of Boy about town in a public Library. I was listening the record because a friend of mine bugged me with TheJamTheJamTheJam... and this riff crashed my head. I borrowed the record and when I went out, I didn't know it yet but my life was changed for ever! :) I found a style, a tribe, clothes, attitude, political views, etc.

Splendid art cover by Manu. Please, check his site and Thank him.
