While The Jam were firmly embedded in Punk from a music perspective they stood apart from just about all of their contemporaries by wearing smartly tailored suits; the very epitome of a Mod revival band, in looks, if not in music. With Paul Weller's song writing ability and guitar playing, along with Bruce Foxton's clever driving bass lines they had a sophisticated sound that seemed deceptively simple, yet was complex in thought and style.

The Jam signed to Polydor on 25 February 1977 to record their debut album In The City, which was also the title of their debut single. Their second album This Is The Modern World, followed just seven months later. In the Autumn of 1978 out came the single, Down The Tube Station At Midnight that made the UK Top 20 and it was immediately followed by All Mod Cons which became their highest placed to that point when it made No.6 on the album chart.

It was a year later in November 1979 that things really took off for the band. The Eton Rifles made No.3 on the UK singles chart, which was followed by Going Underground that topped the charts early in 1980. The former track is on the album, Setting Sons that reached No.4 on the UK album charts. Going Underground is on the album, Snap, a two CD collection of all the Jam's best singles. . . there's an awful lot of them. Their follow-up single Start also topped the charts in the UK while That's Entertainment only got to No.21  something of a surprise - both are included on their 1980 studio album, Sound Affects, which made No.2.

The band's final studio album was The Gift in 1982, which includes the Jam's third No.1 A Town Called Malice; the album went on to top the charts and in 2012 was reissued in a super deluxe format. Soon after The Gift came out Paul Weller left to form The Style Council and later, of course, he had his own very successful solo career.
