Paul And Wilko Johnson's influence. The "Floorboards up" Secret.

Paul dedicated the song to Wilko Johnson when he played it many times. Mike Conley, my dear friend from Brighton saw Wilco live and when he played the Dr Feelgood's 'She Does it Right' he went into 'From The Floorboards Up'. "Weller really did nick it" he said... if you want to know how to play it on guitar check this out:

Be cool and fair, drop us a line!

Minister of Soul.

You probably remember than our beloved Joe Strummer created an imaginary government and the minister of Soul was, of course, Paul Weller. It's a home made comp' because I just wanted to hear on a single cd Paul Weller as the soulman he has always been. Marco did this great cover and I DO thank him, he worked hard to improve it and I've bugged him with many details! Thanx a lot, Marco. This comp' is not perfect, there's other songs, other versions, I know. I made it with heart. Will try to have a "soul section", helped by Brutha' Dave in the next videos (Edwin Starr played for Jools...) Maximum Respect for all the flame keepers of soul!

To speak like heavysoulbrutha'Dave, Peace and SOUL! Enjoy.

Penned Small Wizard?

Small faces and PP Arnold, Belgium TV, "Le Bouton Rouge", 2nd march, 1968. Paul Weller...

Weller as a DJ at Madame JoJo's, 60's Lost and found.

Paul appears at 3'40'' And has a very interesting and complete point of view about music (just kiddin')... Hiro, 38, is an independent film/video maker with his own editing suit in his PC. He
trained as a video editor and cameraman for a year in film production (Actually, Flavio saw it on Youtube and told the Splinters list. Apologies.)


You are listening "The Poacher"...

Just a way to remind how beautiful is this song... a true enlightenment...With Kind Permission of John Hellier. Paul's version with Simon "foxy" Fowler on vocals and Stevie Cradock on guitar.

"The Faces didn't revolve around Rod Stewart, We all revolved around Ronnie Lane"

Ian Mclagan, 5 th June 1997.

The Jam at The Marquee, 1978.

Art cover, design and conception by Manu Gomez.

This post is dedicated to Manu & Marco!
What would our boots be without their works to enlight it?

Jam at The Marquee, 1978.


Hootenanny 2006 Weller solo and Weller/Winehouse duets.

Paul sings "I don't need no doctor" solo, "Grapevine" and "Don't go to Strangers" with Amy when she was still the amazing soulsista' she can be...

They play with the great great Jools' Orchestra (Sam Brown in backing vocals...). They'll be in Brussels in March.

You can DL the different parts on Divshare, . Every part (one and two) are splitted. So unrar the first one (part1.1, part 1.2 etc) and then the second one. You'll have then the whole broadcast.

Enjoy! :)

Magicbus on Guitars 101 forum.

Hey Man (magicbus on the Guitars 101 forum)

Not really fair to take our work and post it on the guitar 101 forum without just a word to ask it. I've never seen you in the d.box to thanx Dave, Marco, Manu or me. Write me please... You just have to copy the url rapidshare adress and you don't even give the blogs' adress, not so cool. To be a mod is also an attitude, I think, not a moral lesson but I don't like the way you do it. I use Marco's and Manu's covers but they're alright, I've asked them, etc. D'ya see what I mean? Actually you can do it, it's just the way you did I don't really appreciate...

I'm sure you're gonna have the right reaction.

All the best.

Paul Weller live on Video V festival 2006.

Paul is in a very great shape and the band too. He's at his best, you know what I mean, when he looks like an angry man! The crowd is amazing and shout and sing and dance all along the gig. You can actually see that Paul really enjoyed it! :)

You can DL the two parts on Divshare, . Every part (one and two) are splitted. So unrar the first one (part1.1, part 1.2 etc) and then the second one. You'll have then the whole broadcast. It's mpg files, if you have some problems to read it, use VLC Media player, dl it here: VLC Media Player

Part one: From the floorboards up/ Wild wood (jazzy mood)/ Come on let's go
Part one 1
Part one 2
Part one 3

Part Two
: In the crowd./ Town called malice

Here comes the nice and incredible John Hellier's work!

Well, everyone knows the absolute Mods devotion for The Small Faces but John really comes from outter smallfaces space. His work is amazing of passion, commitment in keeping the flame alive. He's the keeper. Have a look on his magazine, not a cheap one but an incredible glossy paper one with very rare photos and info, check out the magic store... Absolute respect! :) He has even edited Small Faces Guitar tabs with Paul Weller and he can sell you for a ridiculous price the very last Marriott's LP which has never been released elsewhere... as amazing as rare dvds. Click everywhere to read it in the actual size.

All you need to know, just click on it (cds, dvds, etc;):


Is there any best of for 2007? A proposition...

Thanx a lot to J Christophe who sent it to me! Splinters area, friendship and nothin' to sell! :)

Thanx a lot to the original comp' maker and the sleeve designer. Don't know where it comes from. All the gratitude of the Splinters Area!

BEST OF 2007
