Review Text From NME:

Paul Weller teamed up with Irish newcomers The Strypes for a one-off performance at London's Rough Trade East last night (April 20th) as part of the shop's Record Store Day celebrations.

Headlining the shop's day of in store gigs, which also saw performances from the likes of Frank Turner, King Midas Sound and a separate set from The Strypes themselves, Weller enlisted guitarist Josh McClorey and bass player Pete O'Hanlon as well as Miles Kane's drummer Jay Sharrock to join him for a thirty minute set.

Paul Weller Supports Woking Hospice Charity!

From Woking & Sam Beare Hospices:

Hospice supporter, Sam Molnar was delighted when his friend, Paul Weller agreed to support his up coming London to Paris bike ride. Sam from Byfleet has been training hard and will take on the gruelling challenge on the 17 April to raise money for Woking Hospice – A total of 300 miles over 4  days!

Sam has been a big supporter of Woking Hospice ever since his Mum was cared for tby us over 6 years ago and in 2010 Sam asked his friend Paul Weller if he would do a concert in Woking to raise awareness and profile for Woking Hospice. Paul willingly agreed and ‘Wake Up Woking’ was born raising a staggering £62,000 on the night.

Paul has continued to support the Hospice and also wanted to help Sam promote the bike ride. He has therefore signed the T-shirt he is wearing and also signed a copy of his latest CD, Sonic Kicks and the Hospice are offering the chance to bid for either item. Send your BID in a sealed envelope to: Lorraine Weedon, Woking Hospice…
