Jilted John "Jilted Jam (Demos, Rehearsals And Gigs 1977-2008)" 2xLP


JILTED JOHN is the legendary punk/new wave creation of Graham Fellows (nowadays better known as JOHN SHUTTLEWORTH) who’s eponymous single was released back in 1978, rising to Number 4 in the charts and selling nearly half a million copies in the process, and became the most hated song by people called Gordon ever released with its anthemic “Gordon is a Moron” chant. The single was followed by cult classic album “TRUE LOVE STORIES”, which has been name checked by many as a real inspiration to the likes of Jarvis Cocker and more with its concept album of the trials and tribulations of Jilted John’s teenage angst.

Fast forward to 2016, and August sees Fellows resurrect JILTED JOHN for his first official live performance in over 37 years at the legendary Rebellion Festival in Blackpool for their 20th anniversary. To coincide with this, Boss Tuneage has been working with Fellows to bring you “JILTED JAM”, a stunning collection of unheard demos, rehearsals and gigs spanning from 1977-2008. All tracks previously unreleased before now!
