“That run between the two albums was fantastic,” says Steve looking back. Our Favourite Shop produced two Top 10 singles and saw the group fine-tune their cocktail of influences.
Steve White says:
“I think that was The Style Council’s finest moment in terms of lyrics and political comment. We don’t expect artists to be political now unless they are fairly marginal, but this was an album that went to No 1 in the pop charts that had lyrics commenting on the miners’ strike, about the youth trade union rights campaigns.”
“Paul played an absolute blinder in encouraging me to come out of my shell and really capitalise on all those years of playing in clubs, playing brushes, swing time, Latin patterns and bossa nova patterns.”
