Paul Weller Performs "Carnation" For BBC Radio 4's 'Mastertapes!'

John Wilson continues with his new series in which he talks to leading performers and songwriters about the album that made them or changed them. Recorded in front of a live audience at the BBC's iconic Maida Vale Studios. Each edition includes two episodes, with John initially quizzing the artist about the album in question, and then, in the B-side, the audience puts the questions. Both editions feature exclusive live performances.

Programme 3, A-side. "The Gift" - 30 years after the band's split, Paul Weller talks about 'The Gift' - the last album for The Jam. The band's only No 1 album, it marked a musical departure from the classic Jam sound to a more soul-influenced style, and it ushered in Weller's ideas for the Style Council. It was an album that didn't just focus on the state of society, it also had a lot to say about where music was going in the 1980s - and it included the classic No 1 'Town Called Malice' as well as 'Running …

Watch Paul Weller Perform In Sydney, Australia From 2010!

Our good friend, and Australian Bureau Chief, Kenny Smith sent us this link today of Paul's performance in Sydney back in 2010 that is streaming on a site called, Mosh Cam. It looks to be a slightly edited version featuring 17 of the tracks performed that night. 
"What a lovely little civilized Sunday night concert this is, isn't it? And I mean that!" PW
Watch Paul Weller and other great gigs on Moshcam.
Australian fans waited more than two decades for Paul Weller's long-overdue sold-out 2008 tour, and when he returned with his Wake Up The Nation tour two years later, none of that anticipation had dissipated. Few musicians have flown the mod flag with the same consistency and style as Weller, and thankfully he delivered the same degree of punk rock passion he had in the 70s to the Modfather devotees that packed out the Metro. Now that's entertainment.

Fresh back from a short tour of the US and Japan, Paul Weller talks about the 30th anniversary of The Jam's sixth and final studio album, The Gift, and where he's at right now.

Repost From The Huffington Post

Paul Weller bounds into his chair, an electronic cigarette gripped in his hand. We're in the BBC's Studio Three in Maida Vale. Visibly calm owing to post-tour exhaustion and a morning trip to the gym, Weller is here to be interviewed by John Wilson for BBC Radio 4's Mastertapes series.


"Back in those days, bands put out an album a year, you toured with it for a year, then you went back in the studio and repeated the process. Looking back, I was glad I experienced that pressure. It helped me refine my craft and find myself as a writer. It kept me on my toes," says Weller, Gibson acoustic on knee. "It wasn't a treadmill, it was just what bands did back then. I never questioned it."
