THE JAM – GOING UNDERGROUND

‘Going Underground’ had been planned as a double A-side, coupled with the more experimental track, which mined the same faintly psychedelic seam and oblique lyrics of earlier songs like ‘In The Crowd’. The intro was taken from an earlier song, ‘Thick As Thieves’.

“When we finished off Setting Sons,” Paul explained, “I got the engineer to play the album backwards and there was just one little piece of backward vocal I liked. ‘The Dreams Of Children’ was built around that, more-or-less made up on the spot.”

The technique reflected Paul’s growing love of British psychedelia, especially ’66-era Beatles and early Pink Floyd.
