From The Jam, and technically from The Jam
The Jam was always three guys, (Weller, Foxton, & Buckler) but From The Jam's lineup is a little different:
Bruce Foxton - Bass/VocalsSo who the hell are these two other dudes? ESPECIALLY the guy who is attempting to replace Paul-mother-loving-Weller? Here's what their website has to say about it: "RUSSELL HASTINGS ...shocked audiences nationwide this year with his authentic and passionate interpretation in performance (vocals and guitar) of The Jam's back catalogue."
Rick Buckler - Drums
Russell Hastings - Vocals/Guitar
Dave Moore - Guitar/Keyboards
Apparently Hastings & Moore were members of a Jam COVER band entitled The Gift (named after the 1982 LP). So does that make FROM THE JAM actually The Jam? I say no (no Paul Weller, no dice), but if you are so inclined, check em' out at Blender Theater on September 26th. Tickets are on sale
The Jam - "A Town Called Malice"
