Porcelain God

The Paul Weller documentary, ďPorcelain GodĒ is a definitive guide to the music career of one of the UKís greatest ever Singer/Songwriters. It covers, in painstaking detail, Paulís career from his earliest days in the Jam through to 2006 and is probably the sort of anoraks guide that Paul would hate and see as totally pointless.  If however, you are a fan and want a complete recording database of over 450 Jam, Style Council and Paul Weller songs or want to have a reference guide to his career, then this may be the book for you.

Written by a fan for other fans, Porcelain God is the most detail account of Paul Wellerís music ever compiled. The project is a work in progress and will be updated on an annual basis as some information is still unknown and being uncovered on a daily basis.
