The Style Council were an English new wave band, formed in 1983 by the ex-The Jam singer and guitarist Paul Weller, with
keyboardist Mick Talbot. The permanent line-up grew to include drummer Steve White and Weller's then-wife, vocalist Dee C.
Lee. Other artists such as Tracie Young and Tracey Thorn (Everything but the Girl) also collaborated with the group. As with
Weller's previous band, most of this London based outfit's hits were in their homeland, although the band did score six top 40
hits in Australia, and seven top 40 hits in New Zealand.
