Universal Has Released The Jam's "All Mod Cons" via Their "Back To Black" Vinyl Series!

The Jam All Mod Cons Original Release: 1978

Synopsis
An album that, according to Mojo magazine, “encapsulated life in dull mid-'70s suburbia with sharp, faintly surreal character songs”, the Jam’s 1978 album for Polydor is considered by many to be their finest achievement. Their third record within 18 months, the LP’s title might be meant a little ironically considering Messrs Weller, Foxton and Buckler are featured on the cover in a near empty room, this after having inadvertently kick-started a mod revival across the UK.

WOKING’S Modfather returned to his hometown on Friday (August 8) to attend a private view of a photographic exhibition at The Lightbox.

Paul Weller was back in Woking for one night only when he was a guest at the museum and gallery for a Town Called Malice, Stanley Road Revisited: Photographs of Paul Weller.

Portraits by Weller’s favourite photographer, Lawrence Watson, adorn the walls of the upper gallery in the exhibition that runs until September 25.

The last time Weller made a public appearance in Woking was when he did a gig for Woking Hospice at Woking leisure centre, which raised more than £60,000 for the cause.

Paul, who was born at Woking’s Victoria Hospital, chatted to the Surrey Advertiser about the exhibition and music.
