  1. Bought a new German box set of The Style Council, aaaaaah such nostalgia!!!Reminds me of my middle school and high school days.

    Anybody know who the bassist was? I know Bruce from the Jams is one of the member.

    This is one sweet box set!!!!!!

    Cool, this style council thing has being bugging me for years now I know i heard a style council track which had a very poppy feel (mid 80s) only it had this fantastic slap bass solo in the middle of it...did I dream it?

    (the refrain went something like 'I only want to be wanted'..ring any bells??)
     
  3. Style Council was indeed a great band, but Bruce Foxton wasn't in it. Paul Weller, also from The Jam, more or less was The Style Council though. Oh well, I haven't told you anything you can't find out if you follow DanNowhere's link.
    Does anyone know what Bruce is up to nowadays? The last time I heard 'bout him he was in Stiff Little Fingers. Is that still the case?
