Paul Weller Salutes Robert Kirby

Paul Weller was the surprise guest at a memorial concert for string arranger Robert Kirby on October 3.

Kirby, who worked with artists including Nick Drake, Weller and Elvis Costello, died last year aged 61.

Weller performed ‘With Time And Temperance’ from his album ‘Heliocentric’ – which featured Kirby‘s arranging – at the event, held at London‘s Cecil Sharp House.

“With Time And Temperance” – Paul Weller

Speaking about Kirby, Weller said he was “a great man”, adding: “[We] made great music together and fell off many barstools together!”

With strings conducted by Harvey Brough, the memorial also saw performances from Vashti Bunyan, Teddy Thompson, Ben & Jason and Steve Ashley.

Paul Weller’s next release is called Find The Torch, Burn The Plans, it’s a ‘CD/DVD Deluxe Album’ and its out on November 29th on Island Records

What is it? Well, according to the label, it’s a ‘lavishly packaged and highly covetable DVD and CD package’ mixing a 26-track live set culled from Weller’s Royal Albert Hall shows, an all-new film and a music disc of his Radio 2 gig earlier this year.

The DVD movie part, directed by Julien Temple, is actually titled Find The torch, Burn The Plans and is described as ‘a remarkable 50 minute portrait of one of the world’s greatest musicians at the peak of his powers’. Make of that what you will.

The whole thing is packaged in a hard back book style, with exclusive images, a new interview and a ‘collectable set of 5 cardboard prints’ housed in a slip case attached to the back cover.

The full price is £31.99, although Play.com seems to be doing discounted pre-orders to £17.99 right now. More details from its website.
