All Mod Cons by The Jam is the subject of Jamie Byrne’s latest graphic novel album commission.
“…it’s not only several light years ahead of anything they’ve done before but also the album that’s going to catapult The Jam right into the front rank of international rock and roll; one of the handful of truly essential rock albums of the last few years.” NME review, 1978, by Charles Shaar Murray
I can’t stress enough how important All Mod Cons is for fans of The Jam. I know because I am one. I have been listening to this album for almost forty years. I still can’t quite believe that this record, which I first heard as a fifteen-year-old, is one that I go back to quite so often.
We have been working with artist Jamie Byrne for a while now, and I am delighted that Jamie has created a new artwork for the exhibition. Taking inspiration from the tracks on All Mod Cons, Jamie has created this beautiful piece in his very popular graphic novel style, with each panel representing a song on the album.
Gallery visitors will be able to see the original, which measures a whopping 100 x 100cm / 40 x 40 inches, and is made on ultra high gloss coated aluminium. Limited edition versions in smaller sizes are available to purchase as well.
