The Jam – The Artist

The Jam were an English mod revival/punk rock band during the 1970s and early 1980s, which formed in 1972 at Sheerwater Secondary School in Woking, in the county of Surrey. The group consisted of Paul Weller on bass and lead vocals, guitarist Steve Brookes and drummer Rick Buckler. While it shared the “angry young man” outlook and fast tempo of the contemporary mid-1970s’ British Punk Rock movement, in contrast with it the band wore smartly tailored suits reminiscent of English pop-bands in the early 1960s, and incorporated mainstream 1960s rock and R&B influences into its sound, particularly from The Who’s work of that period, and also drew influence from the work of The Kinks and the music of American Motown. This placed the act at the forefront of the 1970s/1980s nascent Mod revival movement.

Beat Surrender – The Song

“Beat Surrender” was The Jam’s final single, and was released on 22 November 1982. It became the band’s fourth No. 1 hit in the UK Singles Chart for two weeks in December 1982. The song’s title was a play on words combining the title of the 1979 Anita Ward disco single Sweet Surrender with the British traditional military term of Beating Retreat signalling a withdrawal. “Beat Surrender” was not included on any of the band’s six studio albums.

The White Flag – The Shape

Modelled into a silhouette of a flag as used to symbolize surrender. The white flag is an internationally recognised protective sign of truce or ceasefire, and request for negotiation. It is also used to symbolise surrender, since it is often the weaker party which requests negotiation. It is also flown on ships serving as cartels. A white flag signifies to all that an approaching negotiator is unarmed, with an intent to surrender or a desire to communicate. Persons carrying or waving a white flag are not to be fired upon, nor are they allowed to open fire. The use of the flag to request parley is included in the Hague Conventions of 1899 and 1907.
