Paul Weller interview - part 2. Paul on his father, his next album and the demise of Oasis.

Q: It was quite an unplanned album wasn't it?
Paul Weller:
It was yeah, it was only when Simon Dine who produced it and co-wrote all the songs sent me down a cd of 10 different ideas which were very short, almost like sort of mood pieces really, and I just got really excited and straight away I could hear an album on that. We went in the studio for two or three days and came out with eight different ideas, not fully formed but getting there, and it just sort of rolled from that.
