Paolo Hewitt has known Paul Weller since they were both teenagers in the depths of Woking, through his ascent to fame with The Jam, the halcyon years of The Style Council and for all of his critically acclaimed solo career. Hewitt has even been the inspiration for some of Weller's songs - and he has extraordinary in-depth knowledge of the inspiration behind the rest. Once, when Hewitt interviewed Weller for a music magazine, he complained - 'I don't know why people ask me all these questions. All the answers are in my songs.' Largely unnoticed, Weller has used thirty-years of lyrics to explore his personal history and beliefs. Taking as his starting point these lyrics, alongside a lifetime's friendship, Paolo Hewitt shows us the real Paul Weller, the man inside the music.

SOUL STYLISTS is a celebration of Britain's most enduring and popular youth cult, the Mods. With the use of personal testimonies of both the famous and the unknown, Paul Weller and Paolo Hewitt establish for the first time the link between the two key elements of Modernism today - American rhythm and blues and British working-class fashion. They follow the transition of musical styles from London in the late `50s, with the Black American servicemen and their love for Bebop, through the sharply dressed Mods of the early `60s, to the dawning of the skinhead and suedehead movement which provided the musical and stylistic inspirations for `80s bands such as Madness, The Beat and The Specials. Weller and Hewitt talk to such diverse characters as Pete Townshend, David Bowie and Ray Davies, as wel as club owners, tailors and shop owners, in their analysis of the changing trends. SOUL STYLISTS also explores Britain's unique Northern Soul scene which saw thousands of youngsters in the North of England dedicate their lives to buying the most obscure American soul records, and looks at the soulboy and the casual as well as today's Mod inheritors: the youth who make up the acid house and hip-hop scene.

REVISED, UPDATED AND WITH A NEW FOREWORD BY PAUL ABBOTT This edition of Suburban 100 includes new lyrics from the critically acclaimed albums, 22 Dreams and Wake Up the Nation, which has been nominated for the Mercury Music Award. Paul Weller first burst onto the national music scene with The Jam in 1977 and was quickly marked apart from his contemporaries as a brilliant lyricist. In a writing career that has now spanned three decades, his songs have been acclaimed, imitated and loved by many. Suburban 100 - the first selection of Paul Weller's lyrics - draws on songs written for The Jam, The Style Council and solo releases that, together, tell stories of life and love, rage and romance. The youthful frustrations of small-town life that fuelled Weller's early writing is palpable, as is the angry but poignant response to Thatcher's Britain. His lyrics, rooted in English suburban culture, explore the hopes, dreams and crashing disappointments of ordinary people. They also revel in the mystical beauty of the English country landscape and repeatedly revisit dreamlike childhood summers. For the first time Paul Weller shares his reflections on his lyrics, offering candid insights to his writing process and the inspiration behind some of pop music's best loved songs. Suburban 100 reveals aspects of a famously private man.

The inside story of The Jam and The Style Council by the man who oversaw their careers! Record industry executive Dennis Munday's frank account reveals the trials and triumphs of Paul Weller's career, from The Jam's first single in 1977 to the break-up of The Style Council in 1989. He also writes about Weller's post-style Council solo career with a unique insight. Working for Polydor, the author became a regular presence at the two groups' many recording sessions, effectively becoming an honorary member of both The Jam and The Style Council. Despite a sometimes stormy relationship with the band members - and eventually leaving Polydor - Munday was the vital link between Paul Weller and his record company or years. Here then is a uniquely intimate portrait of a rock hero and two influential groups written by someone who was at the heart of the action. This new edition of Shout To The Top has been updated to include details of Paul's new album 22 Dreams, ongoing changes in the line-up to his band and the emergence of From The Jam, the group featuring Paul's former colleagues Bruce Foxton and Rick Buckler which is touring the world performing a set of Jam songs to great acclaim.
