I don't know anyone who hates The Jam.
The Style Council weren't perfect but there were some moments.

Weller wrote some great songs for the Style Council. They are very under rated. I hope they get their rightful recognition one day. l am a huge Jam fan, but listen to TSC just as much. Cafe Bleu and Our Favourite Shop are both very good albums. lm a bit of a Weller obsessive so maybe bias in my opinions though.

I love Our Favourite Shop. I think that's when the Style Council peaked.
I have a friend who plays sax on Paul Weller's new album. He said Weller was a really decent fellow and good company.
It's interesting how the Ocean Colour Scene chap plays guitars on Paul Weller's stuff and on The Specials Encore L.P

He keeps himself busy Steve Cradock, as well as being a founder member of OCS, he has been a member of the Paul Weller Band since he went solo, and a member of The Specials for a few years now.
He's also done a few solo albums, a more recent album with The Songbook Collective and toured back end of last year with PP Arnold. He's done a few other collaborations too over the years.

I was a bit disappointed a couple of years ago when I went to a festival OCS were headlining, and Cradock's son had replaced him on guitar - as his dad was doing another gig with The Specials. In that same gig - the drummer (Oscar Harrison) had his son in the band too. I thought I was seeing the start of the next generation of OCS.

He also played for both OCS and The Specials on the same bill last year too, I seem to recall.
