THE STYLE COUNCIL Modernism: A New Decade (1989)

 
This is what would have been the last THE STYLE COUNCIL album but was rejected by the band's record company.
wiki: It represented a departure from the band's core genre of pop, to a new one; deep house, which was then being referred to as "garage" (as in Paradise Garage) music by the UK press. However upon its completion in 1989, it was rejected by their label Polydor, which led to the band breaking up. It was eventually released in 1998 on the box set, The Complete Adventures of The Style Council. A separate release was released in 2001.

  1. many many thanks for this, quite a strange one, could see Weller's point , but this is really quite good, although hated it when first came to light.

  3. Only a very few Brit bands understood the "deep house" "soulful house" sound of the late 80's. Blow Monkeys were quite brilliant at it, ABC got it but were hit and miss - One Better World reallly is awful - but Weller & Co certainly got it and ran with it. Modernism is a wonderful slice of homage to a sound which deserved everyone's attention at the time.

  4. I have been a fan of Paul Weller in all of his efforts and purchased several of his albums over the years and wore the grooves out to the point of unplayable. He has that individuality that he puts into each project including his solo albums along the same mind set as David Byrne, Peter Gabriel, and Bryan Ferry. I am not comparing them in genre, I compare them in what they bring to the table.

  5. Nice to get ahold of this finally. I have the 12" Mixes of Promised Land & Can You Still Love Me? and the LP version of Promised Land which was oddly omitted from the album's final release.
