The Style Council was emblematic of its creator. Paul Weller, smart, fearless, audacious, with a social conscience totally unafraid to push the possibilities of pop.  With their generous slew of chart hits, The Style Council were one of the defining pop bands of the 80s. And they didn’t need big hair to get there. And now, finally “Long Hot Summers” – the long-awaited and eagerly anticipated definitive career anthology teaming with all the greatest hits and more is released on October 30th.  Named with a nod to the band’s biggest hit, “Long Hot Summers” is endorsed and co-compiled by Paul Weller himself.  As well as the huge hit “Long Hot Summer”, the album also includes the band’s sterling debut top 5 single “Speak Like A Child” as well as other masterpieces such as the languid “You’re The Best Thing”, “Ever Changing Moods” and dance floor filler “Shout To The Top”.
