Paul Weller/ Palma Violets

The Royal Albert Hall is many things. The regal cavern is where The Proms are held – classical music, flags, plastic Union Jack bowler hats and all. It’s also where, since 2000, the Teenage Cancer Trust have held their annual series of...

Paul Weller/Spiritualized

In 2009, students from Ireland’s Institute Of Technology crammed 86 people into a single campervan. For many years, Iggy Pop squashed the genitals of a bull elephant into transparent plastic trousers intended for a 17-year-old girl. And tonight,...

The lager pumps are in overdrive, Liam Gallagher roams the venue in search of VIP sanctuary; the Roundhouse spins with anticipation of the latest Resurrection Of Weller. The glorious glam-punk reinvention of his ‘Wake Up The Nation’ era...

Paul Weller - 'Sonik Kicks'

Paul Weller - 'Sonik Kicks'

That old footballing maxim about the fleeting nature of form and the permanence of class is cold comfort to musicians ailing from the creaking bones and waning powers of middle age. For Paul Weller , the quips about his new single almost write...

Paul Weller - 'That Dangerous Age'

Paul Weller - 'That Dangerous Age'

Album Review: Paul Weller - 'Wake Up The Nation' (Island)

Paul Weller - 'Wake Up The Nation' (Island)

Take a moment to compare Paul Weller to his 1977 classmates, and you’ll find that nowadays everyone’s either dead, virtually senile or beyond caring. Sting ? Plays the lute. Geldof ? No chance. Mick Jones ? Content with backing up Damon...

10 Tracks You Have To Hear This Week (5/04/10)

1. Paul Weller – ‘Wake Up The Nation’ Godlike and modlike and genius he may be, but there’s no pomp, no laurel-resting for Weller. Ballsy, rude and brash, this venom-vocalled rocker, wreathed in harmonium and brass, spits with fiery...

Dating back to the days (just) before he became forever known as The Modfather™, Paul Weller’s second solo album was the record that liberated him from his previous typecast: That Bloke What Used To Be In The Jam/Style Council. Informed as...

Paul Weller & Graham Coxon

Since news broke, Britpop discussion groups from Croydon to Cairo have spoken of little else. Could The Modfather and the adenoidal Ace Face behind ‘Freakin’ Out’ possibly deliver a tune to match their talents? Oh ye of little faith. Based...
