it took me far too long to realise that the reason for the pink face = the colours are supposed to look like the mod target. I like Weller's enigmatic expression in this one.

This one makes me think there is nothing worse than competent mediocrities that have 'orrible exhibitions of work like this at the RA every summer.

RA exhibition of all the paintings in this thread would be pretty neat

Well, his former buddy Paolo Hewitt reckons that the Paul Weller of The Jam would hate the Paul Weller of today, so...

I saw this thread and figured "oh well this will last about an hour, how many drawings and paintings of paul weller can there be out there?"

turns out...like....an infinite amount apparently? what the hell

i think he's like CCR is for americans, i don't know if a brit can truly get what CCR means and maybe an american can never truly get what paul weller means? i dunno something like that

blonde redheads have more fun (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Thursday, 16 March 2017 13:52 (one month ago) Permalink

that said, it's not the same thing really, CCR is iconic yet faceless in a weird way, i bet fogerty can walk down the street and not get noticed in a lot of places, but CCR's music itself and the band itself is ubiquitous, but the dudes themselves always remained a bit obscure

whereas i take it by these paintings that weller is a jesus-like figure or something to a certain set of mods

visual iconography important to mods, clothes obv but not just clothes

perhaps only Morrissey could yield similar riches

i am unsurprised by this marvellous, heartwarming flood but have not yet identified the specific reasons for it (beyond the above)

the pop art connection is important tho

mark s, Thursday, 16 March 2017 13:59 (one month ago) Permalink

whereas i take it by these paintings that weller is a jesus-like figure or something to a certain set of mods

no, he's much more important than that

See, here is the actual defining photo feat: Paul Weller, that makes yer think..

See, if someone asked me who do I identify with, my answer would be "the guy who took the photo"

And yet, I do remember one time in Brighton, bank holiday, I'd gone into a mod shop to see what they had but being faced with 50+shirts, 50+trousers, etc, all the same, I came away with none of it, and walked through a bunch of 45-50yrolds with the haircut/shirts/suits whatever, and for a moment I did feel like that bloke in the middle there. Didn't like it much. Didn't go back

Weller has always had a large audience here. The Jam were huge on a national level, and I think every single one of his solo albums has went Top 10.
