Shout To The Top By Dennis Munday

Dennis Munday’s Paul Weller biography is reminiscent of a Jam seven-inch single. A new song by The Jam was not just another record from the hit parade. It was an event, kids would bunk off school, and workers would phone in sick, just to purchase the newest release from Woking’s finest.

Dennis Munday on Setting Sons and The Jam

The Jam Live - Paul Weller - Bruce Foxton - Rick Buckler.
