Graham Coxon - This Old Town Single Review
Graham Coxon & Paul Weller This Old Town Single Review
This Old Town
It's probably fair to say that in the grand scheme of all things 2007, both Graham Coxon and Paul Weller are currently in the middle of one of the most barren spells - both creatively and commercially - of their careers.
Therefore, what better way to swell the coffers a bit than to put together a piece of music that quite frankly wouldn't have made Seymour's first demo or a Style Council b-side, and sadly doesn't do either artist any favours in regaining a slice of credibility by way of today's ever youthfully dominated industry.
My advice then would be to give 'This Old Town' a miss, and instead go for the combined greatness of 'Happiness In Magazines' and 'Stanley Road' as a reminder of the kind of solo output both of these artists are capable of.
