Documentary Style

Big weekend of TV for this Halloween period.

The first is the return of The Mandalorian, but there’s already plenty enough coverage of that.

The story of the front man Paul Weller and his band has always been an interesting one and this one boasts to be a definitive story.

Other bands like Duran Duran and Spandau Ballet did similar things, but Weller and Co took the boldest steps.
