Jam - Smashing day for a cup of tea old chap, what?

Jam band name origins - English BreakfastEnglish Woking in Surrey was the birthplace of these legendary punk rockers who went through life as The Jam. 

Legend has it that the sister of the frontman of The Jam (Paul Weller, as we all know) made the bright observation during breakfast that there was a group called Bread, but not a group called Jam. 

Why was Jam chosen as their name, and not Marmalade? Because at that time a band called Marmalade had been up and running for six years already.

Active: 1972-1982, GBR
