111

Album: 22 Dreams (2008)
  • This Krautrock sounding instrumental is Weller's most experimental number on the album. Weller told Mojo magazine June 2008: "The track 111 was me, (guitarist) Steve Craddock and (producer) Simon Dine on three different keyboards, with our backs to each other, playing whatever we felt, without discussing it. That was a new thing for us. We wouldn't have tried that even a year or two years ago."
  • According to Weller, the British avant-garde rockers AMM inspired this.
  • This was Paul Weller and Steve Cradock playing two different mellotrons with Simon Dine on the mini-moog. Weller has said that it "was really liberating not to have a standard chord sequence."
