I went on Saturday up in Holmfirth and thought it was fantastic.
They play the whole LP (which I love..so may be biased) straight through and then a good selection of other songs.
Lots of energy in the performance and played very well IMO.
Definitely worth catching if you get the chance.

PS..They do have a tendency to throw a hissy fit and walk off if anyone throws any beer near them though..

Having seen the Jam with Weller, I went to see From the Jam in Dublin last May and thought they were fantastic, better in fact than the Jam. Going over to play Golf for the weekend soon near Oxford and FTJ are playing in Oxford on the Friday so might have to go again, great band, you'll really enjoy.

I had a mate who went to see them and he said if you close your eyes you would thing it was Weller singing.

He's not far wrong and he's a better guitarist too.

Saw them at the very tiny Bristol Academy 2 on their first ever tour when Rick Buckler was in the band, they were excellent!

Not seem them since but must check them out again.
