With their generous slew of chart hits, The Style Council were one of the defining pop bands of the 80s. And they didn't need big hair to get there. And now, finally Long Hot Summers - the long-awaited and eagerly anticipated definitive career anthology teaming with all the greatest hits and more is released. Named with a nod to the band's biggest hit, "Long Hot Summers" is endorsed and co-compiled by Paul Weller himself.
