“Away From The Numbers” by The Jam

15 09 2013

Here’s one of my favourite songs from the first wave of punk and new wave in Britain. “This link’s breaking away from the chain.”

The Jam were from Surrey, and featured front man Paul Weller. After they disbanded in 1982, he played in the Style Council and then on his own.

What was interesting about reading about The Jam was that they were originally a four-piece band, before guitarist Steve Brookes left. I wonder how he feels now, given that the band went on to be so successful. Does he have any regrets, or is he happy with his life?
