from the Jamming! archives:
WELLER ON POP (1982)
I've not sure if I'm posting this piece because of its content or its look. Then again, the fact they're both so strong is nothing to lose sleep over. Jamming! 13 came out a full year after Jamming! 12, a tragedy in some ways given the buzz that was going around the fanzine at the time. But the circumstances were more than mitigating: shortly after Jamming! 12 came out, in the summer of '81, Paul Weller came good on a proposition he'd made to me a full year earlier and set up the label Jamming! Records. (NB: he financed the label, he did not - ever - finance the fanzine.) For the next year, the publication took a back seat to the label; either way, I was having fun. Paul, meanwhile, was wrestling with his stardom, which included starting his own fanzine and penning this attack on 'pop music.' Mostly targeting the music papers, it was supposed to be printed in the NME, but either Paul didn't get round to finishing it or the NME balked; regardless, Paul asked if we wanted it instead.We took it, unedited, and printed it in that near-perfect Jamming! 13 with the Paul McCartney interview and that apparently important Statement up front. Robin Richards placed one of his classic Liechenstein tributes underneath Paul's polemics (unless it was a Lichenstein!) and the whole page almost - well, it almost jumped off the page!

Click on the image to see it at full size. If you still have problems reading the text, you go to Amanda Siegelson's Little Splinters web site (scroll around the contents until you find it), where she has had the the text she so faithfully retyped posted for the last several years. Little Splinters also has the Dave Jennings interview with Weller from Jamming! 20 up there ins traightforward Q&A format.
