Paul Weller To Play Benefit Gig For Japan!

On April 3 Weller will join Beady Eye, Graham Coxon, Primal Scream, Richard Ashcroft and The Coral to play a special show at Brixton Academy in aid of the British Red Cross Japan Tsunami Appeal.

The show is being held to raise money for Japan following the devastating earthquake and tsunami on March 11.

Almost 8,500 people have died in the disaster with thousands injured and with nearly 13,000 people still missing the need for an immediate response is immense.

The Japanese Red Cross has been working on the ground since the disaster struck, mobilizing 85 teams - made up of 700 doctors, nurses and support staff who have provided first aid, healthcare and assistance in assessing the damage and the needs of the communities affected.

Tickets for the show go on sale this Friday (March 25) at 9am, limited to a maximum of 4 per applicant.

Tickets will be available from http://www.gigsandtours.com, http://www.ticketweb.co.uk and http://www.ticketmaster.co.uk or via the 24hr hotline on 0844 811 0051.

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.

‘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 ‘…
