The Jam's Bruce Foxton says he's friends again with Paul Weller

Bassist says he's contemplating a new From The Jam album

The Jam's Bruce Foxton says he's friends again with Paul Weller
The Jam's bassist Bruce Foxton has revealed that he and Paul Weller are on speaking terms again.

Foxton is currently plays bass with From The Jam, performing songs by The Jam alongside Weller soundalike Russell Hastings and former Jam drummer Rick Buckler.

In June 2008, Weller spoke of his dissatisfaction for From The Jam, saying the 'reunion' band was like a "cabaret". The Modfather originally split The Jam in 1982, when they were one of Britain's biggest bands.

However, Foxton has admitted that he and Weller are now on speaking terms – though discussing reforming The Jam is off-limits.

"I don't even discuss it with him, I know the answer," Foxton told Yorkshireeveningpost.co.uk, adding that Weller "doesn't even comment on what I'm doing".

Foxton continued by saying that Weller's friendship means more than music.

"He has been very kind over the last few years - that's more important to me," he explained.

The bassist also admitted that he is considering releasing new 'Jam' material written by Hastings.

"If we think we've got enough good songs we will put out an album," he said. "We will push on. I don't know how quickly it will be but we've been going into a little studio and trying. Sometimes nothing comes of it and you think 'I'll just go off and play a round of golf again'. We will see how it goes."
