Modfather Paul Weller has slammed Apple's iPod for destroying the fabled single B-side.

In an interview in the current issue of Q magazine, former Jam and Style Council frontman Weller described the single B-side as "a lost art".

"It's a lost art that's getting even more lost because of iPods and downloading, which is a great shame," he said while praising rock band Oasis as "a great B-side band".

In July vinyl fan Weller hosted an Apple iTunes festival in London - the results of which were released as iTunes download.
