23rd September 2007:
Porcelain God is now available on Amazon (but it's cheaper through this site!!!!).
Also the book has received a 4 star review (out of 5) in Record Collector Magazine (page 110, November 2007). The full review is shown below:
"Paul Weller: Porcelain God
Porcelain God Publications £15.99
What Weller did, where and when, from the day he was born
...Which means every gig he's ever played as part of The Jam, The Style Council and as a solo artist is listed - from the local talent contest at Sheerwater Community Centre in Woking on 22 April 1973, to sitting in with Noel Gallagher at the Royal Albert Hall on 27 March 2007 for the Teenage Cancer Trust. There are carefully collated setlists informing us that the Jam played covers of The Miracles' Mickey's Monkey, The Isley Brothers via The Fab Four's Twist & Shout, and Rufus Thomas' Walking The Dog when they supported Thin Lizzy at The Greyhound Concert.
Recording sessions are documented too. Did you know The Jam recorded a version of I've Got My Mojo Working in September 1980 at Polydor Studios? There's also a comprehensive list of radio an TV appearances, of bootlegs available, plus a full discography including overseas releases of singles, albums, collaborations and cover versions. There's little to no analysis, and no pictures either, but as a reference tool it's essential."

The new Paul Weller documentary, “Porcelain God” is almost complete and pre-production copies will be sold in limited quantities during April through this site and eBay. The book covers Paul's career in painstaking detail from his earliest days in The Jam through to February 2006. It is the sort of anoraks guide that he would probably hate and see as totally pointless but, if you are a fan and want a complete record of his career to date then please go the 2006 Porcelain God Book page and read more.
Written over a 2 year period from May 2004, information has been taken from a huge number of live recordings, rare studio recordings and interviews from TV, Radio and the press.
