By Tony Fletcher
As one of Britain’s best-loved and most successful fanzines, Jamming! ran for an impressive 10 years and 36 issues, documenting the changing musical landscape between 1977 and 1986 as it developed from a 6-page school publication to a nationally distributed monthly.
Fully illustrated throughout, The Best of Jamming! features stand-out pieces from the zines’ momentous run, from early features on The Jam, The Alarm, Adam & The Ants, and the Dead Kennedys, to surprise exclusive interviews with the likes of Paul McCartney, U2 and Pete Townshend.
Personal letters from Mark E. Smith, Paul Weller and others are included along with previously unseen interview manuscripts and many of Jamming!’s arts and politics features too. Editor Tony Fletcher provides an introduction to each issue, and former star contributors and now-established musicians reflect on their interviews and Jamming!’s influence and impact.
