Links Are Dead - I Know

I keep getting Emails from people asking me to re-upload the links and music etc. I think people are just getting to those particular pages so are not reading the reason for the dead links.

So I am putting this in place so hopefully people will read it and stop Emailing me about it.

The reason the links are dead is that my account with Media Fire has been closed with all 11,000 files lost. That is why you can not download the things and No I can not re-upload them.

Eventually I will start doing that again when I have found something suitable. In the meantime this blog will be information only blog.

Thank you all

The Jam - A Town Called Malice

'Town Called Malice' is a song recorded by The Jam from the album The Gift. It reached number one in the UK singles chart.

It was a double A-side single release featuring 'Precious' as the flip side. A 12 inch version was also available with a live version of 'Town Called Malice' backed by an extended version of 'Precious'.

Released as the first single from the album on 29 January 1982, it entered the chart at number one on the British music charts, staying at the top for three weeks, and preventing 'Golden Brown' by The Stranglers from reaching number one. EMI, the Stranglers record company, objected to the sales of both formats of 'Town Called Malice' being aggregated, arguing that Jam fans were buying both versions and thus preventing their band from reaching the top of the charts.

It was the band's third number-one single in the UK. It was the band's sole chart entry onto any American chart (although this single and 'Start!' both appeared in the low-rungs of the Billboard Dance/Club Play charts) when it hit number 31 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart in 1982.

Paul Weller has said that it was written about his hometown Woking as a result of his teenage experiences there.

A music video of the song was filmed and was in moderate rotation on MTV in 1982 and 1983.
