Weller & Foxton Team Up On New Album

THE JAM stars PAUL WELLER and BRUCE FOXTON have reteamed to record new material after falling out over royalties.
The ex-bandmates haven't recorded together since The Jam split in 1982 and Weller admits it took the deaths of his father and Foxton's wife last year (09) to bring them together.
He tells Mojo magazine, "We'd both lost loved ones and without getting too spiritual that was the spur of it.
"I spoke to him... when his wife Pat was ill and that broke the ice... There was no big plan, it was easy, a laugh, and nice to see him and work together again. We just slipped back into it."
Foxton and Weller's collaboration can be heard on the latter's new album Wake Up The Nation. They performed together on the tracks Fast Car/Slow Traffic and She Speaks.
The album also features guest spots from My Bloody Valentine star Kevin Shields and former ELO drummer Bev Bevan.
