IN THE CITY - THE JAM
In The City, The Jam’s 1977 debut album serves up the world’s first taste of Weller, Foxton and Buckler’s firebrand punk-rock fusion.

Blending political statements with sounds influenced by ‘60s favourites like The Who and Motown, all underscored by a million-mile-an-hour urgency, it remains a superb introduction to a band who became the voice of a generation, presented here on shiny vinyl.

All the more impressive given that Paul Weller was just 19 years old when he penned its tunes, The Jam’s In The City is a bold statement both musically and ideologically.

Tapping into the attitudes of punk’s disaffected youth, it was this combination of blistering rhythms, political fury and twisted English patriotism that made them one of music’s hottest properties.

The album includes one of their best-loved tracks, the explosive debut single, ‘In The City’, which paints a raw portrait of urban dissent.

Recalling writing the song, Paul Weller says, "It was just a question of when I did go to London, and I saw things like the punk thing was just starting to happen, it just sort of inspired me a lot. And I just knew that there was going to be a real change in music, which in a way there was and a way there wasn’t. It's come to a sort of paradox really."
