Edge Hill’s resident rock star, Carl Hunter, has contributed to a special concert to mark the end of The Jam: About The Young Idea, Liverpool’s definitive Mod exhibition.
Media Lecturer and bassist with legendary Liverpool band The Farm, Carl was delighted to be asked to perform at A Celebration of The Jam at the ECHO Arena on Wednesday 5 October.
He said: “The Jam were a huge influence on me as young boy growing up in Bootle, introducing me to politics, Motown and clothes. They were also a massive influence on The Farm, we used to cover Down In The Tube Station at Midnight in our early days.
“The Farm were thrilled to be asked to cover a few Jam songs for this event,” he added.
The grand finale concert featured Bruce Foxton from The Jam, along with Paul Weller’s backing band, The Songbook Collective. As well as support from The Farm, a host of stars performed including Mercury Prize winning Badly Drawn Boy, Haircut One Hundred’s Nick Heyward, Barry Sutton from The La’s and Cast, Inspiral Carpets’ frontman Tom Hingley and Big Country drummer Mark Brzezicki.
The Jam: About The Young Idea runs at The Cunard Building until Thursday 6 October.
