Like many, the lockdown (AKA confinement) has made me feel blue. It also brought back some memories of a bygone era. The first album of The Style Council, Café Bleu, is a warm memory I ended up revisiting and playing with. In this image, I took the cover of the booklet that came with the album and turned it into a cover of the French magazine Paris Match. It only exists here.
But there is a song called The Paris Match on this album. It is one of Paul Weller’s best and features Tracey Thorn from Everything But The Girl on vocals. One line says:
”I hate to feel so confined. Feel like I’m waisting my time.”
Needless to say, I’m only sad in a natural way.
