Paul Weller At The Azkena Rock Festival!

From (translation by google):

On Saturday night lifted the Englishman Paul Weller, a mod yet elegant and enthusiastic in his work that won the fight by U.S. rocker Brian Setzer, who seems content with the styling routine. Weller made about 18 pieces in a bolus intense better than that given by the late last year in Bilbao Live Festival. And not just because Vitoria appear without tummy! His 76 minutes with the intensity struggled for half a minute passed valley, and rebounded to finish. The sound of the godfather of the mods was powerful and left diapers Setzer rockabilly. With her hair dyed blonde and proud opened cane, he sang with onomatopoeia, shook the funk and dance, played guitar with attitude, moved to the mic with the swagger of a dandy, was heard by a band on (the battery liked), perhaps at the time loosens valley to approach the experimental lisergia recovered the 'Start' of the Jam, became ideological 'Wake Up The Nation', the piano singing 'Pieces Of a Dream' by sending stern Peter Gabriel, made smooth soul to Sam Cooke and the final triad gave lessons for the brit-pop today.

La noche del sábado la levantó el inglés Paul Weller, un mod elegante y aún entusiasta en su labor que ganó la pelea al rocker yanqui Brian Setzer, quien parece conformarse con el estilismo rutinario. Weller hizo unas 18 piezas intensas en un bolo mucho mejor que el dado por la tarde el año pasado en el festival Bilbao Live. ¡Y no sólo porque en Vitoria apareciera sin barriga! Sus 76 minutos pugnaron con la intensidad, por la mitad pasaron un momento valle, y repuntaron para acabar. El sonido del padrino de los mods fue poderoso y dejó en pañales al del rockabilly Setzer. Con su pelo teñido de rubio abrió cañero y orgulloso, cantó con onomatopeyas, agitó el funk y el baile, tocó la guitarra con actitud, se movió ante el micro con la chulería de un dandy, se dejó escuchar por una banda sobrada (el batería gustó mucho), quizá en el momento valle se destensó por acercarse a la lisergia experimental, recuperó el 'Start' de los Jam, se tornó ideológico en 'Wape Up The Nation', al piano cantó 'Pieces Of a Dream' remitiendo por adusto a Peter Gabriel, hizo soul suave a lo Sam Cooke y en la tríada final dictó lecciones para el brit-pop actual.

  1. Can you post this in Spanish?

  2. He didn`t play the Bilbao BBK Live Festival. It was the Azkena Rock Festival, held in Vitoria-Gasteiz. His set was powerful, short but intense.

  3. Thanks for the correction.

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. A&R man Chris Parry duly we…

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 ‘…

Steve White On The Passing of John Weller...

It wasn't unexpected to get the news that John Weller had passed away , it was a beautiful sunny morning in fact , but the news still stung even though the anticipation existed .

I finished work today , a day peppered by texts and calls , I missed the call that mattered but made ammends and spoke to the one person I needed to speak to , I raised a glass at dinner and reminisced with my beautiful partner of days of travel and nights of glory that followed , and after a little to much wine the drowsiness lifted and the harsh reality that someone very special had passed hit me , I wanted to say that , with my emotions bubbling very much to the surface , I wanted to remember those decades and shows and nights that we all spent together , indestructible , laughing and making the music of our dreams , wide eyed vagabonds not quite believing .

I remember the day on arriving back from Sydney, John telling me it was all over and he had enough of "this lark" , that was 24 odd years …
