The Style Council was an English band formed in Woking in 1983 by Paul Weller, the former singer and guitarist with The Jam, and keyboardist Mick Talbot. The permanent line-up grew to include drummer Steve White and Weller’s then-wife, vocalist Dee C. Lee. Other artists such as Tracie Young and Tracey Thorn (Everything but the Girl) also collaborated with the group.
They released six studio albums. “Long hot summer”, “My ever changing moods” and “You’re the best thing” are their most popular songs. The Style Council broke up in 1989. About the breakup, Paul Weller said (in 1990): “It’s something we should have done two or three years ago. We created some great music in our time, the effects of which won’t be appreciated for some time”. In 1992, Paul Weller had begun to re-establish himself as a leading British singer/songwriter.
