368 – The Jam – Strange Town (1979)
Written by Paul Weller
Produced by Vic Coppersmith-Heaven
Label – Polydor
Paul Weller’s angry sense of alienation from the London he once loved only went to prove that he and The Jam hadn’t lost any of their creative zeal following the release of the outstanding album “All Mod Cons”. The “break it up, break it up” climax is as powerful as anything from the era and the fact that he could throw in an equally brilliant B side to this 7″ single with “The Butterfly Collector” shows a songwriter of enviable talent.
And just in case you haven’t heard “The Butterfly Collector”.
