The Style Council Mr Cool’s Dream – Iain Munn

Mr Cool’s Dream is a wonderful book dedicated to the The Style Council and offers an amazingly detailed and accurate biopic of the band, their music and what has being described as Paul Weller’s ‘forgotten’ years, I’ve consumed many similar books but never one quite as exhaustive and in-depth as this one, it’s a real labour of love and it’s great to see it back in print – this time as a high quality 360 page paperback, a must for any fan of the band, of Weller and of the era – you can buy direct from the author / publisher here, highly recommended

More Jam – Fuelling the Pyre

Fuelling the nostalgia there’s some great 30 year reading to accompany the listening, including an Uncut special edition The Changing Man – The Complete Story, a feature article on The Jam in Mojo, the wonderful Thick as Thieves – Personal Situations with The Jam which I can’t recommend enough and some fantastic original writing, thoughts and commentary in All Mod Icons – again a highly recommended for any fan or indeed music aficionado.
