The Stranglers/The Jam/Cherry Vanilla: The Roundhouse, London

Nick Kent, New Musical Express, 23 April 1977

THE JAM WERE scarcely halfway through their set at half past six when the geezer at the door of the Roundhouse told the 300-plus still stranded outside that there were only a hundred tickets left to be sold. Surprising, I thought, as last week John Cale hadn't even filled the place.

Total word count of piece: 785
