Quote from: The Culture Bunker on November 26, 2021, 12:20:16 PMNot sure how the Style Council could be seen as "selling out", given the Jam were one of the most popular bands in the country in 1982. If anything, splitting them up and decided to dabble in (lightly) jazz/soul-tinged excursions with one of the Merton Parkas seems almost like an act of career sabotage. It's a credit to Weller's songwriting that it worked out (in commercial terms) pretty well for a few years.
Quote from: pigamus on November 26, 2021, 12:48:51 PMFucking off your massively successful band at the height of their success to do something else, deliberately trying to alienate the cuntiest of your fans - I mean it's not something you could ever see Noel Gallagher doing is it?
Quote from: phantom_power on November 26, 2021, 12:45:33 PMI think there was a school of thought, from twats as mentioned above, that TSC were pop and The Jam were punk so Weller had sold out because he had fucked off the loud guitars. The SC experimentation was generally kept from the albums rather than the single releases. I think a lot of luddite Jam fans felt the same about later Jam songs
Quote from: phantom_power on November 26, 2021, 01:16:15 PMI like that lumpy funk of some of the later Jam songs but can see why Weller would want to get some better, or different, musicians to take it to the next level
