Paul Weller’s “Sonik Kicks” Gets Vinyl Release for Record Store Day
Calling all mods! This year’s Record Store Day is going to be extra special, as the Modfather, Paul Weller, has something cool for the loyal collectors out there.
Yep Roc Records has announced that the legendary Jam frontman will drop Sonik Kicks 7″ Singles Box Set, a limited edition wrap up featuring five singles on colored vinyl, plus two unreleased songs and an autographed Sonik Kicks poster. Such a gem follows Weller’s latest studio LP of the same title, which featured the absolutely stellar tune, “That Dangerous Age.” The annual Record Store Day is slated for April 20.
And check out Weller jamming to “When Your Garden’s Overgrown” at John Varvatos on the Bowery, which of course is the former location of the oft-missed CBGB. The performance was particularly significant for the English singer/songwriter, for he and his fellow Jam lads, bassist Bruce Foxton and drummer Rick Buckler, made their NYC debut there over three decades ago.
And since we need a jolt to get through Monday, let’s enjoy some classic Jam, shall we?
