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…
Have a listen…
The exhibition is now open in Brighton and runs until Bank Holiday Monday 29th August 2022.
