A Kind Revolution, new cd, new change!?
What do we know about Weller? That our favourite 'modfather' finally returns and is obviously currently very creative. The film 'Jawbone' is to be released this spring, with a soundtrack by an intense Paul Weller that is preceded by an endearing 'The Ballad Of Jimmy McCabe' from it in the meantime.
At the same time, then a new CD 'A Kind Revolution' out on the (also very 'British') Parlophone label and apparently Robert Wyatt and Boy George dropped by the studio once more for it. Good company, just like (see: the videos) Adele and Noel Gallagher have already shared a stage with him on occasion.
Or just quickly situate Paul Weller within a broader context? From The Jam to The Style Council?
That repertoire still embraces classics like 'A Town Called Malice', 'Going Underground', 'Start', 'That's Entertainment', 'The Long Hot Summer', 'You're The Best Thing', 'Shout To The Top', 'Walls Come Tumbling Down', 'Wild Wood', 'You Do Something To Me' and the significantly titled 'The Changing Man'. Add to that: more, masterful CDs like 'Stanley Road', 'Heavy Soul', '22 Dreams'…
Above all else, there’s his indestructible live-reputation and an exceptional rock ‘n’ roll work ethic. We’ll keep repeating it.
