Additional information about this The Jam vinyl art.

The Jam – The Artist

The Jam were an English Mod Revival/New Wave band during the 1970s and early 1980s, which formed in 1972 at School. While it shared the “angry young man” outlook and fast tempo of the contemporary mid-1970’s 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. 

The Bitterest Pill (I Ever Had To Swallow) – The Song

The Bitterest Pill (I Ever Had To Swallow) is a song written by Paul Weller of the Jam.   The backing vocals are provided by Jenny McKeown, lead singer of The Belle Stars
