In this Star articleand in threads on babble, i read a resounding thumbs down to The Style Council. Now its been a while, but i remember really liking them. I thought the pop/jazz fusion thing was pretty hip, i know have some of their vinyl in a cupboard somewhere. So why the hate on for the Style Council?

Honestly, I have never heard of Style Council. But if jazz fusion is your thing, check out this Toronto band.

I loved the Style Council. Most of the criticism of their work is from Jam fans who couldn't get into the musical shift or people who found the music and Paul Weller's involvement in Red Wedge too political for their liking. I love all of Paul Weller's stuff from the Jam to his solo work.

I read that article in the Star with Bob Geldof. So the Boomtown Rats were more successful than the Jam? Ya right, put down the crack pipe Bob. I can name a slew of Jam, Style Council and Paul Weller songs that were hits. Boomtown Rats, I can name "I don't like Mondays" and "Elephant's Graveyard". Wooo.
