Paul Weller XFM Concert Pictures and Set List!


Here's a few pictures and the set list for Paul's concert Saturday, 21 June 2008 at KOKO in London for XFM Radio.

It's been said that you should never trust a band that doesn't sweat. That being the case, the amount of faith handed over to Paul Weller at KoKo is colossal and somewhat justified. Dipping - and indeed, dripping - liberally into his new album, '22 Dreams', the Queen Mum of Britpop, Gawd bless 'im, is still burning with a passion that belies his years. 'Echoes Round The Sun' is a psychedelic delight while 'Push It Along' merely confirms the Modfather's continued ability to belt them out with the best of 'em. Nothing though, compares to the feverish response that greets a frenzied 'Eton Rifles' that sees Weller reclaim it from those who recently misappropriated it. Cappuccinos all round, then!

  1. Going to see Paul in sydney if i can get a few tickets. Listening to days of speed a few years ago inspired me to take up guitar. I went to see him play at the royal albert hall and i have to say his attitude to his fans that night sucked. i came away feeling totally let down. I hope i see something a little more special this time.

John Weller Obituary From The Independent...

For thirty years, John Weller managed the career of his son Paul, through the salad days and success of The Jam in the Seventies and early Eighties, the ups and downs of The Style Council and Paul’s re-emergence as a solo artist in the Nineties. Theirs was a unique father-son relationship in the music industry, built on John’s unwavering belief in Paul’s talent and shared values like hard work and pragmatism.

John could be blunt, and once refused to have lunch in a record company’s executive dining room, remarking to the managing director: “I didn’t come here to eat, I came to do business.” But his bark was worse than his bite.

John’s success was all the more remarkable since he started in his forties after years working in factories, on building sites and driving a taxi. When The Jam signed to Polydor in February 1977, for a £6,000 advance and a six per cent royalty rate, John admitted he didn’t have a bank account and asked for cash instead of a cheque.

Paul Weller's Son, Natt Gives A Candid Taxi Interview

Where else to meet the musician son of the agelessly groovy Modfather but at London’s trendy Met Bar? And there’s more than a hint of moody Mod style about the Japanese parka that Paul Weller’s eldest child Natt has slung over his Vivienne Westwood top.

Yet there all similarity ends, for singer-guitarist Natt has inherited the exotic beauty of his mother – former Wham! and Style Council backing singer Dee C Lee – rather than the famously angular features of his father.

‘Everybody always goes, “Luckily he took after his mum…”’ laughs Natt, whose mother is from France and St Lucia and whose great-great grandma was Japanese. Hence Natt’s fascination for Japan, where he moved in 2006 for a year to learn the language.

To pay for his studies, he modelled and deejayed, ‘I felt like an outsized monster,’ confides Natt, 21, a 6ft 1in beanpole. He returned a fan of Japan’s popular culture – from manga cartoons to punk-goth music – and with a different spelling to his name, which now features two ‘…
