Past members

Sharp were an English new wave band active during the mid 1980s, featuring former Jam members Bruce Foxton and Rick Buckler. They released one standalone single, in 1986.


After the Jam broke up in 1982, Bruce Foxton pursued a solo career and Rick 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 broke up.

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

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