Paul Weller has again ruled out the possibility of The Jam getting back together, dismissing the notion as a "sad cabaret".

Weller split with his Jam bandmates RICK BUCKLER and BRUCE FOXTON in 1982 and has no interest in visiting his past.

He says, "(A reunion) would never happen. Why would I want to go back? For nostalgic reasons? That's never good enough. My philosophy is to embrace the new day and get on with it.

"If The Jam reformed now, it'd just be a sad cabaret, and that's not what I'm about at all."
