PAUL WELLER’S METAMORPHOSIS from The Jam’s splenetic R&B purist into the Style Council’s jazz-soul sophisticate, the born again roots-rocker of the solo ’90s and beyond, into the genre-bending questor of now, has been remarkable. It’s a tale of unexpected twists and turns, as Weller actualised his uncontrollable urge to look forward. Direction, reaction, creation. Here’s a new thing...
This month, on the eve of the release of his new album, Saturns Pattern, Weller and MOJO join forces to ransack his back catalogue for its key change agents, and to compile a free covermount CD that reflects the cosmic wavelength he’s currently operating on.
And while that’s going on in the magazine, we've compiled a 20-clip online playlist that showcases Weller’s ever-progressive oeuvre in its most exciting light. See below.
