Paul John Weller (born John William Weller; 25 May 1958) is an English singer-songwriter and musician. Weller achieved fame with the punk rock/new wave/mod revival band The Jam. He had further success with the blue-eyed soul music of The Style Council (1983–1989), before establishing himself as a solo artist with his eponymous 1992 album.

The Style Council was my favorite band during my HS years in Ithaca NY.   This was a phase, from 9th Grade to Senior year, of Herman Hesse’s pleasure, reading accompanied by a soundtrack from Roxy Music, the Cure, Squeeze, and The Style Council. The Style Council got me through many restless evenings of hormonal flux.

Why reminisce about Paul Weller and the Style Council today?  Might it have something to do with the recent celebration of so many of his newbie offspring just celebrated the other day on Durham Cool? Most definitely yes, but something more stirs up memories of Mr. Weller and the timeless songs of the Style Council.   When one makes any effort to explore contemporary music it is no accident that one finds oneself exploring the roots of the current trend if one is responsible and rooted in a sound journalistic tradition.

A very sad and deprived life it is without the beautiful songs of Paul Weller, The Jam and The Style Council.  I could not subject my readers to such a life.

Council Houses Historic
A police car and a screaming siren
A pneumatic drill and ripped up concrete
A baby wailing and stray dog howling
The screech of brakes and lamp light blinking
That’s entertainment, that’s entertainment
A smash of glass and the rumble of boots
An electric train and a ripped-up phone booth
Paint splattered walls and the cry of a tomcat
Lights going out and a kick in the balls
I tell ya that’s entertainment, that’s entertainment
Days of speed and slow time Monday’s
Pissing down with rain on a boring Wednesday
Watching the news and not eating your tea
A freezing cold flat and damp on the walls
I say that’s entertainment, that’s entertainment
Waking up at six AM on a cool warm morning
Opening the windows and breathing in petrol
An amateur band rehearsing in a nearby yard
Watching the tele and thinking about your holidays
That’s entertainment, that’s entertainment
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
Waking up from bad dreams and smoking cigarettes
Cuddling a warm girl and smelling stale perfume
A hot summer’s day and sticky black tarmac
Feeding ducks in the park and wishing you were far away
That’s entertainment, that’s entertainment
Two lovers kissing amongst the scream of midnight
Two lovers missing the tranquility of solitude
Getting a cab and traveling on buses
Reading the graffiti about slashed seat affairs
I tell ya that’s entertainment, that’s entertainment
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la

Paul Weller has put all rumors that he is gay to rest today in an interview.

Weller’s became a gay icon after he softened the Jam’s aggressive image in his 1980s pop act The Style Council. He admits that these were his sexually ambiguous years, saying: “I went through my ‘confused sexuality’ time in The Style Council” but he never went further than stroking his keyboardist’s earlobes in a video.

Weller admits to being bemused by his popularity among the gay community but states that he is completely heterosexual. “The truth is, I don’t really fancy blokes.”****

The Style Council

I could be discontent and chase the rainbow’s end
I might win much more but lose all that is mine
I could be a lot but I know I’m not
I’m content just with the riches that you bring
I might shoot to win and commit the sin
Of wanting more than I’ve already got
I could run away but I’d rather stay
In the warmth of your smile lighting up my day
(the one that makes me say, hehe)

‘Cause you’re the best thing that ever happened to me or my world
You’re the best thing that ever happened, so don’t go away

I might be a king and steal my people’s things
But I don’t go for that power crazy way
All that I could rule but I don’t check for fools
All that I need is to be left to live my way
(say listen what I say)

I could chase around for nothing to be found
But why look for something that is never there
I may get it wrong sometimes but I’ll come back in style
For I realize your love means more than anything

 


Thru the years

Style Council
