One of Britain's best-loved and most successful fanzines, Jamming!
documented the musical landscape as it evolved between 1977 and 1986.
Fully illustrated throughout, The Best of Jamming! includes numerous
stand-out pieces from the zine's impressive 36 issue-run, from early
features on The Jam, The Smiths, Run-D.M.C, Cocteau Twins and The Beat,
to surprise exclusive interviews with Paul McCartney, U2 and Pete
Townshend. Personal letters from Mark E. Smith, Paul Weller and
others appear alongside arts, sports and politics features, poetry and a
Foreword by Billy Bragg. Having guided Jamming! from a 6-page school
publication to a nationally distributed monthly, editor Tony Fletcher
provides behind-the-scenes insights, while musicians and former
contributors reflect on their interviews and Jamming!'s long-lasting
influence. An immensely evocative read, The Best of Jamming! perfectly
encapsulates the excitement and unprecedented potential of the DIY era.
