'The Jam' working on new material

Live DVD release imminent too from Paul Weller's ex-band

'The Jam' working on new material
Revived The Jam band From The Jam have hinted at the release of a live DVD and a possible album of new material this year.

The group, which consists of original The Jam members Bruce Foxton (bass) and Rick Buckler (drums) with guitarists David Moore and Russell Hastings in place of original modfather Paul Weller, will release a live DVD of a London show filmed in December last year this April.

The group then plan to start rehearsing song ideas in the spring after they’ve finished early 2008 touring commitments.

Speaking to Billboard.com Foxton said: “There will be new material, [but] it probably won’t see the light of day until the end of this year.”

He added: “We’ve got a few good ideas kicking around. We’ll see what we come up with. We don’t want to rush it. There’s no pressure from a record label or anybody. It’s a great position to be in.”

Foxton said the group weren’t sure who would be writing lyrics yet, as Weller was on original lyric-penning duties, but he did say the rhythm section sounded similar.

Foxton concluded: “It’s experimental. When we go into the studio, that’s when we’ll really see what we’ve got.”
