'ABOUT THE YOUNG IDEA'

The Ultimate Exhibition of The Jam Memorabilia

Curated by Nicky Weller & Den Davis.

The biggest ever collection of The Jam memorabilia – ‘About The Young Idea’, launches in its spiritual home of Brighton on the 1st August and runs through until 31st August 2020. Situated on the iconic beach location made famous by the 1979 cult film 'Quadrophenia' and as featured on the cover artwork of seminal album 'Setting Sons' by The Jam.

A must see exhibition for The Jam fans, music aficionados and lifestyle curious, this huge collection of rare, mainly unseen material and fan memorabilia, will be accompanied by acoustic performances, film screenings and guided talks. In a pop-up location on Brighton Beach with a modernist bar and a selection of street and locally sourced food to create a month-long place of homage for The Jam fans and lovers of UK culture alike.

The exhibition takes its title from their debut hit single,‘In The City’ and charts the trio’s journey from Woking to superstardom until their split six years later following 18 consecutive UK top 40 singles and over 14 million global album sales, before passing into the era of The Style Council with an additional room of never-seen before memorabilia.

The personal archives of all three members of the band, Paul Weller, Rick Buckler, Bruce Foxton, the Weller family and music archivist Den Davis - have shared their extensive collections for this show. 

Curated by Nicky Weller frontman Paul’s sister and former head of The Jam’s fan club, together with music archivist Den Davis following hugely successful exhibitions in London and Liverpool. Discover hand-written lyrics, original stage outfits, personal photographs, rare footage, unreleased music videos, early scrapbooks, letters, postcards, posters, fanzines, and the band’s instruments – it’s a completist’s dream.

Nicky Weller and Den Davis commented, "We want the fans to be involved in this exhibition and to include their memories and special items from The Jam days and will be curating a new area of the exhibition to showcase these. Anyone interested, please do get in touch with pictures of what you would like to include in the exhibition at exhibit@abouttheyoungidea.co.uk".

Expect to wander through an Underground station to witness the band’s formative years in the ‘Stanley Road' room, including Paul’s own school books and archive family photo's from the early year.  Each room will include iconic items from each year of the band’s career with the ultimate vinyl collections together with a mass of memorabilia and the band’s instruments, including Paul’s iconic 'Whaaam!' guitar and stunning mod-wear flanked by customised Jam scooters.

The exhibition designed in reference to album artworks and featuring original graphics from celebrated artist Anthony Burrill, provided a unique and personal vision into the band’s trailblazing life and the retrospect legacy The Jam left on music, style, politics and culture.

Elements of this exhibition were previously shown on a smaller-scale at Somerset House, London in 2015 and the Cunard Building in Liverpool 2016.  Since then, the collection has expanded with generous contributions from fans and collectors around the world.  

Nicky Weller comments, If you’re a Jam fan there’s every single thing you can possibly imagine, if you’re not a fan it’s still interesting as far as social history goes. If you’re just a music fan it’s just a noisy fun exhibition".  

She continues, “I’m so excited that we will be taking “About The Young Idea” to Brighton this year with the biggest collection of Jam memorabilia on show - just a stones throw from the last ever live gig at the Brighton centre in 1982".

The most comprehensive exhibition about this extraordinary and influential band - About The Young Idea Exhibition is the ultimate exhibition for The Jam memorabilia -  1st-31st August 2020, Brighton Beach, Volks Halfway Station, BN2 1DE.
