The final Style Council album, Modernism: A New Decade, was scheduled to be released in 1989. The material reflected Paul Weller's fascination with the garage house scene which had recently filtered to the hipper UK clubs from the States. Weller saw the music (and the cult surrounding it) as being a natural update of the mod aesthetic. Polydor, who were by now wary of The Style Council's slipping sales, cared little for Weller's new "vision" and deemed the submitted album unsuitable for release.
Regardless of ones feelings for electronic, gospel inspired dance music it should be noted that Modernism: A New Decade includes one of the Council's best songs; the planned first single Sure Is Sure (Promised Land was never part of the actual tracklisting).
This rather dear Japanese import CD is a lovely replica of the final albums planned artwork. Those of you who realise there's more to Weller than All Mod Cons will obviously want to own this historical curiosity.
