About the show

“The great thing about writing and compiling Thick As Thieves is meeting not only people who had a massive hand in The Jam story but also meeting the fans and like-minded souls with similar views and beliefs. Yann is one of those people who is a genuine, warm and engaging guy whose love of The Jam and Soul music is inspiring. Same with Mark Baxter. A lovely big hearted fella although from the wrong side of the river, he’s the right side of the passion and respect for all things Modernist “ (Stuart Deabill). We paid him a lot! 45 minutes full flow interview about...everything Weller!

Interesting stuff, humorous stories. Classic the one in the Dominion Theatre, I think that Mod had to 'eat his words' when the SC came on stage with their pastel 'clobber' on. The violence side is interesting. I have teenagers that don't believe me about the tension, fractions and tribal atmosphere growing up that time. Late 70's. 80's wasn't like the 'spirit of 69' where you read it was predominately about the music, clothes and black and white coming together. Later on these were still important factors but it was a shame there was a small racist faction - National front - who also recruited at the football grounds tool. I had a few ICF (West Ham) thugs in my class at school.

I bought every Jam 45 from 'Our Price' records usually the day it came out. I was 13 in 1979 when 'All Mod Cons' came out. I've followed Weller every since. Still remember a fight with a racist school mate in the school toilet over 'Down in the Tube Station at Midnight'. He reckoned the song and The Jam were racists - we come to blows over it. This was usual school life with National Front members. So you can see The Jam, Weller was solace and retreat for me at that difficult time.Weller is a prolific genius and a 'blue eyed' soul Boy. His soul knowledge is amazing too - you can hear this influence in all his songs too.

Book sounds great too. Thoroughly enjoyed this and the insight. THANKS FOR THE SHARE :)
