Porcelain God (2007 version)
The 30th anniversary of the release of The Jamís first single In The City, which was originally issued on 29th April 1977, has recently passed. To celebrate this milestone, a revised A5 paperback version of Porcelain God has been released.
The 2007 Version of the Paul Weller documentary, ďPorcelain GodĒ,
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 2007 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
550 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 again at the end of 2008 as new information is always being uncovered.
This version of the book is in an A5 paperback format spanning a massive 648 pages, documenting Paulís work in extreme detail and is split into the following chapters:
