“Modern Classics - die Greatest
' Grade: A
Anyone else calling their greatest
hits collection “Modern Classics”
would be purely arrogant. But that’s if it
were anyone else - this is Paul Weller.
Weller’s practically a legend in his
own right. In the late ’70s, he burst on
the scene as part of a band that would
ingrain itself as one of the underground
successes of that decade - The Jam.
While not big in the United States, it
was huge in the United Kingdom. But in
1982, that was all she wrote for The Jam
as it closed up shop.
Not much lata came Style Council,
but it didn’t last much longer than The
Jam, breaking up in 1989. Finally, it
seemed Weller was destined just to quit
the whole thing, but he did what any
sensible person did - he wait solo.
And a genius blossomed.
That was 1991. Seven years lata, it’s
hard to underestimate the impact Weller
has had on music over the past few
decades. Dozens of bands have cited
him as being influential. The trouble is
that Weller can’t make a coherent
And so comes the joy of a greatest
Weller’s solo career has been eclec
tic at best, surprising at worst From the
punk-gone-disco of The Jam to the
jazz/poj>of Style Council, Weller’s
musical style has been all overthe place,
but his solo career has moved heavy to
R&B, jazz and improvisational music
And with each of his six albums,
Weller has wandered from heavy to
light guitar, wrenching soul to jamming
rock. His mood is all over the place. One
moment he’s screaming about glory and
love, the next he’s brooding and morose.
“Modem Classics” picks up all of
that and more. The best songs of die last
seven years of Weller’s life have been
picked, chosen and melded into one fan
tastic collection. It’s lull of sporadic gui
tar wails and whines, crooning voices
and lingering melodies, all steeped
heavily in soul and R&B.
With casual grace, Weller shifts
from the laid back, drink in hand, life is
great attitude of “Friday Street” to die
almost painfully desperate “You Do
Something To Me.” The playfulness of
“Sunflower” is offset by the up-ftont
Only one of the songs on die collec
tion is new, the wistful “Brand New
Start.” But it holds much promise for
Weller’s future. Maybe he’ll produce an
album with the same splendor of his
hits. Maybe he’ll regain his footing and
become popular across the world. And
But it’ll be worth listening to, what
ever he does.
‘Scud Stud7 to
NEW YORK (AP) - Geraldo
Rivera had A1 Capone’s vault. Now
Arthur Kent has an Egyptian tomb.
Fox announced Tuesday that it will
broadcast a two-hour special next year
where Kent, the former NBC “Scud
Stud” now working as an independent
journalist, will unseal the newly dis
covered tomb on live television.
The network and a production
firm, Radio With Pictures, have made
arrangements with the Egyptian gov
ernment to broadcast the scientific
excavation. Terms were not disclosed.
Kent will join archeologists March
2 in opening the pyramid of Queen
Khameremebty II, an Egyptian royal
who reigned 4,600 years ago. They’ll
also unseal a tomb near the burial place
of a former Egyptian high priest.
The special sounds familiar to one
of Rivera’s low points, the 1986 open
ing of a vault linked to mobster Capone
in a Chicago hotel. After a big buildup
in a live special, the vault was empty
except for a sign and a few bottles.
Fox thinks interest in history is ris
ing. And it says this has been a serious
archeological project, monitored close
ly by the Egyptian government.
But Fox being Fox - the network of
“When Good Pets Go Bad” - a little
drama doesn’t hurt, though.
“Had the ancient Egyptians from
2,700 B.C. evolved into sophisticated
architects, artists, astronomers and sci
entists?” the network asks in a breath
less news release. “Or did they receive
some help? And if so, from whom?
Alien visitors from another world?
Descendants of the lost civilization of
The answers, Fox says, “have been
silently entombed in the timeless sands
of the Sahara Desert”
