Preview Tracks From Paul Weller's "Sonik Kicks!"

Sonik Kicks will be released on March 19th in the UK 
and March 27th in North America!


  1. Thanks for the heads up!

  2. Sigh.......I'm a huge Weller fan and always will be. I'm just not feeling this, I dont care for it. I miss the music from the era with Minchella, White and Craddock. I really miss Wellers guitar playing and rock sound. Please dont get all "Madonna" on us longtime loyal fans. Go fire up yer scooter, take a long ride and come home with pure instrumental music on the brain. Hell, come back a bit angry! We like you that way.

  3. Its all over has been for ages really but we hang on in hope. Its a bit like that pet that you know is really ill but you keep it going cos you love it so much. Its time to put it to sleep. Hasn't got it any more and he hasn't had it for a long while barring about two decent songs on every album, most people would be slating this sort of stuff if it was by anybody other than Weller, but they feel they have to still say its good, stop lying to yourselves and to him and let him go peacefully. Thanks for the memories Paul you truly are one of the all time legends, but spare us the embarrassment of any more of this stuff. xx

  4. sounds ok but compared to wild wood,stanley road,heavy soul and heliocentric im not so sure.

    1. I'm sighing negative you all are. Why would any one who knows anything about Wellers music, want him to rehash Stanley Road every 2/3 years. These are only quick clips but this sounds like a great album to me. This is surely why (some of his) fans are so loyal, he's always trying to better himself. Why do you think he split the jam and never wanted to reform them. Anyone, hope you all change your mind when you actually hear the album in full.

    2. Mr. Weller???? This you???

  5. Nobody wants him to rehash stanley road but theres a difference in being loyal and having blind (or in this case deaf) adoration. Electonic pop? do me a favour. The word to describe this collection of poor mans kraftwerk songs begins in S and ends in T and its not salt.

  6. Big fan since 1977 and always find PWs music needs a few listens.On every album tracks that "I just don't get" but overall more positive on this at first listen than I was Wake Up the Nation.For example I did not care for Around the Lake at all on first two listens now I play it often.

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 …
