The Style Council have today’s almost forgotten track

 

Paul Weller, though relatively unknown to most North Americans, is a massive star in England…most of us on this side of the Atlantic remember him from his days with The Jam, and, for years, now, he’s had a solid career at home as a solo act, but in between there was this band, The Style Council, which offered a style quite unlike The Jam, and only slightly tied to his current recorded sound…I remember playing this track, and others, in my radio days, but one rarely hears anything regarding this phase of Weller’s career anymore and that’s a shame…

 

Greg Simpson

Greg Simpson firmly believes his career in the music industry officially began on March 14, 1965 when a band gave him ten dollars as commission for helping them find a gig. He hasn’t looked back since then and looks forward to celebrating his fiftieth in 2015 with an enormous party paid for by the hundreds of dollars he’s made since then. His career has covered all aspects from radio for many years, and including working for record labels, artists and, since 1992, Canadian Music Week where he programs the radio stream and manages all conference streams and events in real time annually. He also attends half a dozen conferences a year doing research for CMW and is generally accepted as a knowledgeable cat with a few stories to tell. At the root of it all, though, is his undying love for music and musicians.
