Bruce Foxton – Freak (12″)

From 1983 and produced by Steve Lillywhite, I bet Foxton was furious when The Jam split and Weller went off to form The Style Council !

Sounding a bit like Killing Joke with the vocals and guitars but with brass added. Far removed from the sound of The Jam. It was the opening track from his LP “Touch Sensitive” which came out the following year. Here in an extended, funkier version.

Stan Shaw (The Hitmen) and guitarist Peter Glenister helped arrange it.

The B-side has a bit of The Police / The Fixx, mid-tempo AOR with a slight edge.
