PAUL WELLER / THE JAM

AS THE LEADER OF THE JAM, PAUL WELLER FRONTED THE MOST POPULAR BRITISH BAND OF THE PUNK ERA, INFLUENCING LEGIONS OF ENGLISH ROCKERS RANGING FROM HIS MOD REVIVAL CONTEMPORARIES TO THE SMITHS IN THE '80S AND OASIS IN THE '90S. 
DURING THE FINAL DAYS OF THE JAM, HE DEVELOPED A FASCINATION WITH MOTOWN AND SOUL, WHICH LED HIM TO FORM THE SOPHISTI-POP GROUP THE STYLE COUNCIL IN 1983. 
AS THE STYLE COUNCIL'S CAREER PROGRESSED, WELLER'S INTEREST IN SOUL DEVELOPED INTO AN INFATUATION WITH JAZZ-POP AND HOUSE MUSIC, WHICH EVENTUALLY LED TO GRADUAL EROSION OF HIS AUDIENCE -- BY 1990, HE COULDN'T GET A RECORD CONTRACT IN THE U.K., WHERE HE HAD PREVIOUSLY BEEN WORSHIPED AS A DEMIGOD. 
AS A SOLO ARTIST, WELLER RETURNED TO SOUL MUSIC AS AN INSPIRATION, CUTTING IT WITH THE PROGRESSIVE, HIPPIE TENDENCIES OF TRAFFIC. WELLER'S SOLO RECORDS WERE MORE ORGANIC AND ROOTSIER THAN THE STYLE COUNCIL'S, WHICH HELPED HIM REGAIN HIS POPULARITY WITHIN BRITAIN.

 

"Playing live is what it's all about for me. It's cathartic, it's emotional, it's about communing with people.

The way you feel after a gig is a such a powerful thing" - Paul Weller
