The Style Council – Shout to the top

It seems apt to post one of the first artists I really got into as a boy while I am back at home. Paul Weller is a big hero of mine, both musically and stylistically (although that isn’t so evident in this video). I first came to hear him through listening to The Jam, and have like everything he has done subsequently.

The Style Council are widely derided but they get a bad rap in my eyes. They were certainly a departure from The Jam him I respect people who like to keep changing things up, and this tune in particular is great. A pretty special video here too, pleasingly cheesy.
