Style Council - Live at Full House DVD Review

by Sherrill Fulghum

The British pop duo known as The Style council formed in 1983 after guitarist-singer-songwriter Paul Weller broke up the popular band The Jam. Weller wanted to expand the musical style of his music and felt his current band mates were not up to the task. Teaming up with keyboardist Mick Talbot, Weller had an outlet for his multi-style/genre music. The duo were popular for a few years but Weller's politically charged lyrics were not. While fold music has always been as outlet for political commentary on a musical level; 1980's pop music was not and the establishment was not pleased which ultimately caused the downfall of the group.

"Live at Full House" was recorded at the Full House in Hamburg in 1987 near what would be the end of The Style Council.. For those who do not understand German translations are given on the DVD package.

The concert itself is a good one but far too short for a real fan of The Style Council. The nine song 37 minute performance is like an appetizer leaving fans to say "that's it", and craving for more. For anyone who is new to the music of The Style Council the DVD gives a good sampling of what The Style Council is about.

The DVD offers a unique feature; besides being able to play the concert through or pick a particular song from the track list; fans can select the playlist feature which allows them to program the songs in the order of their choosing.

Also included on the DVD is a short interview with Paul Weller. The interview originally recorded in English was dubbed into German. Englis subtitles are available. The interview discusses Weller's music and songwriting styles. But it becomes lost in the comedy of the set-up. Like many dubbed interviews the original audio is left intact only turned down which means it can at time be heard when the German speaker stops. Add this to subtitles which may or may not match the original audio and it becomes a hilarious addition to the DVD.

All in all it's a good show, just not enough of it.
