Purple Hearts – The Artists

Purple Hearts are an English mod revival band, formed in 1977 in Romford, eastern Greater London. They were often considered one of the best English mod revival groups Originally consisting of Jeff Shadbolt, Simon Stebbing, Bob Manton, and Nick Lake but drummer Nick lake was replaced by Gary Sparks when he broke his leg. The band took their name Purple Hearts, after an amphetamine-barbiturate mixture popular with the mods of the 1960s. They changed their sound from the rough-edged punk rock, to a more mod-influenced sound, which, thanks largely to The Jam, was beginning to capture public attention. The band split in 1982 but re-formed in 2009 and played all over the UK and Europe. They continued playing from 2009 to 2014.

My Life’s A Jigsaw – The Song

‘My Life’s A Jigsaw is a song by the mod revival band Purple Hearts taken from their second studio album, ‘Head on Collision Time.’ It was written by Jeff Shadbolt.

The Jigsaw Piece – The Shape

Modelled into a silhouette of a jigsaw piece. A jigsaw puzzle is a tiling puzzle that requires the assembly of often oddly shaped interlocking and mosaiced pieces. Typically, each individual piece has a portion of a picture; when assembled, the jigsaw puzzle produces a complete picture. Jigsaw puzzles were originally created by painting a picture on a flat, rectangular piece of wood, and then cutting that picture into small pieces. Despite it being called a jigsaw, a jigsaw was never actually used to cut it. John Spilsbury, a London cartographer and engraver, is credited with commercialising jigsaw puzzles around 1760. Jigsaw puzzles have since come to be made primarily of cardboard.
