Sharp were a mid-1980s English rock band, featuring former Jam members Bruce Foxton and Rick Buckler. They released one single.

Personnel[edit]

  • Rick Buckler (drums)
  • Jimmy Edwards (vocals)
  • Bruce Foxton (bass / backing vocals)
  • Tom Sharp (keyboard)

Career[edit]

After The Jam split, Foxton pursued a solo career and Buckler formed Time UK, featuring Jimmy Edwards on vocals. After a stop-start career that took over two years to release three singles, and a rapid dwindling of the initial public interest in the band, they effectively split up.

Foxton, finding his solo career had followed a similar path to Time UK's, recorded several tracks with Buckler and Edwards. A solitary single, "Entertain Me", was released on UK mod record label, Unicorn in 1986.

Tracks from the release were included on a 2002 Time UK compilation album, One More Time.[1]
