More than 400 fans recall The Jam in action in the latest in Richard Houghton’s ‘people’s history’ series, retelling the story of iconic bands in the words of fans.

Breaking through as part of the British punk scene and topping both the UK singles and album charts four times, The Jam’s commercial success is matched by the affection in which the band are still held. Mourned by some who think Paul Weller’s decision to break up the band in 1982 was rash, and celebrated by those who think the decision was courageous, The Jam remain musical heroes for thousands of British music fans. This is their story.
