Below is a review of From the Jam’s performance on Saturday by the Surrey Comet’s Tom Ambrose (photograph above by Derek D'Souza).

Bruce Foxton rolled back the years as From The Jam celebrated 35 years of the LP “Setting Sons” at Kingsmeadow on Saturday.

Lead singer Russell Hastings told the crowd the band always look out for their date at AFC Wimbledon each year and it is clear why.

Few bands can provoke such a vibrant reaction from its fans, a healthy mix of ageing mod revivalists and pockets of twenty-something’s.

Foxton and his band rattled through Setting Sons, igniting the crowd with tunes such as “The Eton Rifles” and “Smithers-Jones”.

It was hot, it was sweaty, it was frenetic and that is everything you would come to expect from the intimate Kingsmeadow venue.

By the time “Down In The Tube Station At Midnight” was played as part of the follow on greatest hits set, the room was rocking.

 “Town Called Malice” closed the sell-out show and the majority of the sweaty, exuberant crowd stayed around to dance to the great tunes played by the DJ.

Perhaps, given the rise in the music and fashion, we could be on the brink of the third wave of British mod?
