A Few Guests On Bruce Foxton's New Album Including...Paul Weller!

AN UNEXPECTED reconciliation with former Jam bandmate Paul Weller has led to a creative rebirth for Bruce Foxton. The bass player with Britain's most successful band of the late 1970s and early 1980s comes to the Hall for Cornwall on Tuesday with From The Jam.

But that group has moved on – no longer just a vehicle for performing the old Jam classics, Bruce, singer/guitarist Russell Hastings and former Big Country/Cult drummer Mark Brzezicki are now playing originals too.

Bruce told me: "Two-thirds of a new album has already been completed at Paul Weller's studio and it will be released next year, probably under the name Foxton, but it will still be the members of From The Jam. We will be playing two or three of the songs among the Jam stuff in Truro – hopefully Jam fans will relate to it, as there is a similar feel, mostly down to Russell's vocals which share a Weller vibe."

"Ray Davies is on one song and it looks as though Steve Cropper will be on another…

Paul Weller Interview With ShortList.com!

PAUL WELLER  In mod we trust
"I swear Noel’s obsessed with me,” says Paul Weller, with a sly smile. “Honestly, he’s always mentioning me in interviews.” He’s responding to the Weller-comments in ShortList’s recent interview with Noel Gallagher. But the former Oasis guitarist isn’t the only rocker you could accuse of having a Modfather fixation. Since he snarled on to the scene with The Jam nearly 35 years ago, he’s cast an impeccably tailored shadow over pop culture as an icon of music, style and singular hairstyles. So it’s no surprise that Liam Gallagher has enlisted him to design his own Pretty Green capsule line. But does this foray into fashion mean the 53-year-old’s quitting music? Not a chance…

You’ve got a new collection on Liam’s label. Does that make him your boss? [Laughs] Yeah, I’m working for Liam. Working for the man. Nah, he hasn’t really been involved, but I showed him the stuff and he likes it. [Pretty Green] made a suit for me last year when I was playing the Ro…

Paul Weller Talks Fashion With GQ!

"Did I want anything from my dad's wardrobe? Only his copies of Playboy." Paul Weller is sitting in the former offices of Hammer Horror on, appropriately, London's Wardour Street, discussing his new range of suits for Liam Gallagher's Pretty Green label. One of the country's best-dressed musicians, Weller has gone from Burton-suited mod revivalist with the Jam in the Seventies to Britpop's founding father in the mid-Nineties, via the Style Council and the gloriously OTT Eighties.

Thankfully his new clothing line is inspired by the late Sixties and early Seventies and includes well-cut three-piece suits which can be worn both in and out of an office. "I wouldn't want to be involved in anything that I wouldn't wear myself," says Weller. "It's been a dream really - I brought reference pictures, graphics, sketches, vintage things I've collected over the years and stuff from my own wardrobe." Here he talks to GQ.com about sa…

Paul Weller To Play "Crisis" Charity Concert!

From PaulWeller.com

On Tuesday December 20th at the Hammersmith Apollo, Paul Weller will join a host of stars from the world of music and comedy to perform at Stand Up and Rock: a music and comedy gig in aid of homelessness charity Crisis. Weller will be performing a full live show while there will also be appearances from Graham Coxon, Tim Minchin, Jo Brand and Ross Noble.

The night will help mark the 40th anniversary of Crisis at Christmas and all proceeds will go towards helping the charity continue its life changing services. Since 1972, Crisis has provided vital services for homeless and vulnerably housed people.

Speaking about the show, Weller said: "It'll be good to get on stage for Crisis again. In hard times like these more and more people need their help so I'm happy to support Stand Up and Rock as Crisis at Christmas turns 40."

Tickets for the show go on sale from 10am on Friday (November 4) via www.gigsandtours.com and www.ticketmaster.co.uk. Ticket …
