The Jam's 'Setting Sons' was originally planned as a concept album about three childhood friends who, upon meeting after some time apart, discover the different directions in which they've grown apart. Only about half of the songs ended up following the concept due to a rushed recording schedule, but where they do, Paul Weller vividly depicts British life, male relationships, and coming to terms with entry into adulthood. Weller's observations of society are more pointed and pessimistic than ever, but at the same time, he's employed stronger melodies with a slicker production and comparatively fuller arrangements, even using heavy orchestration for a reworked version of Bruce Foxton's "Smithers-Jones."
Despite whatever mitigating circumstances might have affected Setting Sons reaching its conceptual ambition, it often reaches brilliance and stands among The Jam's best albums. The likes of Girl on the Phone, Thick as Thieves, Private Hell, Wasteland and Little Boy Soldiers among the band's most vivid, poetic and critically acclaimed compositions.
This show represents an annual highlight of The Grand's rock and pop schedule. It sells out faster every year and fans are urged to not delay in purchasing tickets.
From The Jam features original songwriter and bass player Bruce Foxton, Russ Hastings (vocals) and Mark Brezezicki (drums).
