Feb 11, Slh rated it it was amazing. Morrissey authority Simon Goddard has interviewed almost everybody of any importance, making “Mozipedia” mozipedai last word on Morrissey and The Smiths.

Any further reissues of Mozipedia would have a lot more direct information to go on. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.

Worshipped by some, vilified by others, Morrissey is a unique rock and roll creation. Steven Patrick Morrissey is one of the most original and controversial voices in the history of popular music.

Plus all the various collaborators and musicians and hangers-on that’ve populated Moz snow-globe since Goddard does the same thing with Morrissey in Mozipedia, which may seem redundant after all the other goddamned Moz books, but is handled as clearly and deeply as it is obsessively. Mar 05, Krystal rated it it was amazing.

Mozipedia: The Encyclopedia of Morrissey and The Smiths

Bringing together every song, album, collaborator, key location, every hero, book, film and record to have influenced his art, it is the summation of years of meticulous research. As a solo artist, he has continued to broach subjects no other singer would dare. Lots of good juicy details and things I didn’t know like who knew that Morrissey took ecstasy inand said that was one of the only times he liked what he saw when he looked in the mirror? If you’re as much into minutiae regarding Morrissey and The Smiths as I am and you have a fair amount of common sense in order to try and separate gossip from fact, I’d say go for it.

Interesting and thorough look at Morrissey’s life, solo career and work with The Smiths. Dec 21, Coles Corner rated it it was ok Shelves: I particularly liked the fact he didn’t shy away from criticising Morrissey’s weaker output. A great book to dip into whenever the mood takes you.

How could I not love reading about the god that is Morrissey?? This book is very interesting and covers topics from The Beatles to Frank Sinatra. Steven Patrick Morrissey is one of the most original and controversial voices in the history of popular music. Quite a phenomenal achievement by the author in managing to track down and gather so many facts, influences and opinions into one place.

Jul 28, Andreas Stavros rated it it was amazing. On the upside, a couple of the entries led me to two separate books I wouldn’t otherwise have discovered: However, this author likes to think that he found the key to “Moz-wisdom” and knows exactly which song is wonderful and which isn’t.


Oct 07, Mauberley added it. The Encyclopedia of Morrissey and the Smiths Simon Goddard Ebury- Rock musicians – pages 1 Review Steven Patrick Morrissey is one of the most original and controversial voices in the history of popular music.

It’s in my coffee table book rotation! Or in the lengthy entry entitled “Sex” that he lost his virginity — whatever that means — at age “12 or 13”. He’s a walking open book with respect to his love for British or European culture – its books, its music, its films and for certain social groupings that also fascinated Morrissey through out the years.

Given the amount of deluded Morrissey apostles out there, this felt like a refreshing change.

With The Smiths, he led the most influential British guitar group of the s, his enigmatic wit and style defining a generation. I love Morrissey and The Smiths.

As interesting as it was, by the time I got to the last entries it was a bit tiring to read another entry about a “kitchen sink drama” that Morrissey loved.
