The Jam: This Is The Modern World

Mick Farren, New Musical Express, 5 November 1977

SO THIS is the modern world. I'm glad they told me. For an instant I'd thought I'd been transported back to 1965. Flashback on flashback to The Who's My Generation album come fast and thick. So thick in fact that Ingrid looks up from what she's doing and enquires how come they don't do the job properly and sing falsetto Beach Boy harmonies.
