Mozipedia - The Encyclopedia of Morrissey and The Smiths is published next week in hardback in the UK by Ebury Press: the official street date is Thursday 23 July, internet pre-orders should ship before then.
To quote from the official press release: “Steven Patrick Morrissey is one of the most original, fanatically adored and controversial voices in the history of pop. Mozipedia is the first in-depth encyclopedia of the man, the myth and the music. With over 500 pages and 700 entries, it covers every song, every album, every collaborator, his personal heroes and secret influences. From The Queen Is Dead to Suedehead, from Cilla Black to the Sex Pistols, his ‘absurd passion’ for Farley’s Rusks and the ‘undiscussable’ Band Aid, it’s all here - in one epic and devilishly handsome book.”
Mozipedia will be Borders (UK) Music Book Of The Month August 2009 and is available on Amazon UK and most other places for much less than the full retail price of £25.
Finally, as an extra for Morrissey-solo users, I have compiled a special Mozipedia Spotify playlist. Those of you already on Spotify, use this link…
… for your free 20 track playlist which (adverts permitting) acts as a complementary/vaguely alphabetical soundtrack to some of the entries/songs by other artists mentioned throughout the book. I sincerely hope you enjoy reading/listening.
