Moby writes a book

By | Published on Thursday 12 June 2014


Say what you want about Moby, he sure has stuck around for a long time. And now it looks like bits of that ‘long time’ are to form the basis of a new book charting the ‘Porcelain’ man’s earlier days in NYC’s East Village.

The now-acquired book will, Publishers Marketplace says, look back over Moby’s life and times in the late 1980s whilst he was making what’s perhaps still his most famed LP, ‘Play’, “in the midst of the crack and AIDS epidemic, and the rise of EDM and his unique vantage point as a white vegan in a predominantly black and Hispanic art form”.

A unique vantage point. Yup.
