Slow Down

On this day in 1977 Polydor Records signed up and coming Mod revivalists The Jam; whether or not the suits journeyed out to Woking to get the lads' signatures isn't documented. A handful of weeks later they recorded and released their debut single In The City; the album of the same name quickly followed with ten more amphetamine fuelled R'n'B nuggets. This footage shot at Manchester's Electric Circus captures them at precisely that time.


  1. Cor, Paul Weller when he was a sexy little thing! Lovely.

    The Jam were one of the best bands I ever saw live.

  2. I feel knackered just watching it. Brilliant.
