This event has been and gone.
To commemorate 50 years of mod culture in Brighton, Bruce Foxton's From The Jam perform The Jam's Greatest Hits along with a host of special guests including Secret Affair, The Chords, and a rare chance to see the original line-up of The Truth, plus DJ's playing all types of Scooter Boy sounds from 60's til present!
From The Jam
From the Jam features Bruce Foxton from the original Jam line up. He also spent 15 years playing bass with Stiff Little Fingers. Bruce is joined by Russell Hastings on lead vocal and guitar. From The Jam have gained a reputation for the kind of incendiary ‘live’ performances that sealed the reputation of The Jam all those years ago. Audiences can expect to hear classic The Jam hits such as Down In The Tube Station At Midnight, Going Underground, Town Called Malice and The Modern World as well as some live favourites and songs from Bruce’s solo career.

The Truth was a British rock band, who existed from 1982 to 1989. They re-formed in 2012 for occasional live performances. The group was formed by Dennis Greaves, formerly of Nine Below Zero, and Mick Lister in the early 1982. They went through several line-up changes, but Greaves and Lister remained members throughout the group's run.

Part of the mod revival of the late seventies, The Chords were spotted by Paul Weller at a gig at The Wellington Pub in Waterloo. Supports with The Undertones, The Purple Hearts, The Jam & Secret Affair followed. Jimmy Pursey of Sham 69 signed them to his own label before they moved to Polydor. A tempestuous couple of years followed, with lead singer duties being taken over by ex-Vibrators front man Kip. The band called it a day in 1982. They were one of the more successful groups to emerge during the revival, and they re-formed with the four original members for a UK tour during 2010. More recently in Spring of 2012, Buddy, Chris and Bill reformed and played gigs in London, Tokyo and Australia.
