“Sonik Kicks” shows what he studied. The music kaleidoscopes through a swirl of sound, referring to the exploration of '60s psychedelia without rehashing its cliches.
Mike Steer's insight:

PW continues to surprise and delight with new sounds and direction on each album he releases!

What Is Britpop? - bpn | Music | Scoop.it
The majority of the Britpop bands were inspired heavily by the mod and garage rock groups of the 1960s. Most famously, Oasis was cited with ripping off the Beatles while Blur credited the Kinks with some of their inspiration.
Mike Steer's insight:

Many of my favourite bands are Britpop...good historical story on the scene!

In the Crowd – The Jam 1979 to 1982 | SoSoActive.com

In the Crowd – The Jam 1979 to 1982 | SoSoActive.com | Music | Scoop.it

In my experience, you’re a fan of either The Jam or The Style Council. Paul Weller either did his best work pre- or post-1982. In your opinion. And most people do have an opinion about Weller. About his songs and his performances. He’s that strange kind of pop star who shuns the title. And yet he’s one of the biggest pop stars the UK has produced.

A new book out on 17 May gives more evidence for stalwart Jam fans of why this was a great era for British pop music. I met with photographer Derek D’Souza just before publication.

Mike Steer's insight:

The Modfather...still vital and putting out fantastic tunes!!
