A chat with Nicky Weller at the opening of This Is The Modern World in Brighton…

It’s Friday 29th July, just hours ahead of the opening of This is the Modern World, a new exhibition, curated by Nicky Weller (Paul’s sister) that showcases two bands that mean so much to so many people – The Jam and The Style Council…
I popped in for a chat and a sneak preview with Nicky ahead of the big night…
