Ah yes, loved the Style Council back in the day. I saw them in Nottingham (UK) when I was at college there, must have been 1983 or so.
You have to admire the way he did such a hand brake turn after The Jam - albeit the latter day Jam was becoming diverse.
I downloaded Michael Gurley’s Ultrasound today. I have a signed copy. He asked me today if I listened to it and I said no. He signed it! But love that I waited and downloaded from his website michaelgurletmusic.com
Oops sorry, you didn’t ask what I was listening to
I never got into these guys. A song here or there, but after reading about the angry lyrics, The Style Council has moved up on my listen-to list. Thanks, Kevin!
Loved this album when it came out. As a huge Jam fan, I naturally wanted to hear Weller’s new work and boy was I surprised with Cafe Bleu (the first one out that I could find)! I quickly warmed up to the new Jazz/R&B groove on that album. “Internationalists” came out shortly later and I was completely blown away by the juxtaposition of the biting lyrics and smooth music! The Lodgers, my favorite track, personifies that mood completely!
