Pieces of Morrissey

Pieces of Morrissey
Adventures With The Moz Army
Author: Matthew Jacobson


Morrissey is a cult.

But what drives fans' devotion? What makes them trek halfway round the world to catch his shows in the US or South America when he is playing in their city a few months later? Why do they fight over pieces of his shirt, thrown each night into the crowd?

Is this healthy? Should they seek help? Is Moz messianic or does he calculatedly whip the mob into a frenzy to maintain his status? And what of Morrissey's own adolescence and his obsessions with 50s rock 'n' rollers and stars such as Bowie and Patti Smith?

Morrissey devotee (and proud owner of an intact Moz shirt) Matt Jacobson examines his own obsession and that of his fellow fans to discover the lengths some will go to, to catch sight of their demi-god.

Hi, the shirt is located on a tailors dummy - in my bedroom, along with a T shirt from the Everyday is Like Sunday video and a huge Morrissey collection. Mozzers shirt has appeared on the TV ! Mozarmy feature "Morrissey/ Smiths Fans 2012" ( You tube ). It's the most important piece of clothing I have.

Thanks for your comments. I do hope you enjoy the book !

All, the book will be released soon - it may just miss the January release date first advertised. We are just finalising a few bits and bobs. But, it will be out as soon as possible. Thanks ever so much for all pre orders, Best Wishes, Matt

Hi Matt, well done for writing a book! And not just any book, but a book on people with a Morrissey obsess...whoever they might be!

Quick question mate, is the book going to be available from Amazon?

Thanks,

Reggie

Hi, Yes the book should be available from Amazon - and hopefully as many places as possible. I do hope the Moz army enjoy the book - its full of tales from myself, moz fans , authors, singer songwriters, tribute bands and owners of the Salford lads club !....Viva Moz !
