What happens when you take the original lineup from the legendary UK group The Jam, remove their brilliant frontman and reform with the bassist and drummer left intact. The non-Paul Weller version of the group is called From The Jam, featuring original Jam members Bruce Foxton and Rick Butler, along with musicians Dave Moore and Russell Hastings. To me this is like seeing The Smiths without Morrissey, but hey, I guess it is better than nothing.
From The Jam is now scheduled to his our shores in January for a thirteen date US tour. One point of interest is that their opening act is Hugo Cornwell from The Stranglers. You'll be getting a good dose of UK flashback hits from this tour.
