Morrissey is a cult. But what drives fans' devotion? What makes them trek halfway round the world to catch his shows in the US or South America when he is playing in their city a few months later? Why do they fight over pieces of his shirt, thrown each night into the crowd? Is this healthy? Should they seek help? Is Moz messianic or does he calculatedly whip the mob into a frenzy to maintain his status? And what of Morrissey's own adolescence and his obsessions with 50s rock 'n' rollers and stars such as Bowie and Patti Smith?

Morrissey devotee (and proud owner of an intact Moz shirt) Matt Jacobson examines his own obssession and that of his fellow fans to discover the lengths some will go to, to catch sight of their demi-god. In conversation tonight with Julie Hamill, come meet the author, ask some questions, get a signed copy of the book. Plus a lovingly honed DJ set to fit the hand in the glove care of Tony Bugbear.

AUTHOR DISCUSSION, Q&A, BOOK SIGNING, EXCLUSIVE MUSIC PLAYS & MORE! LIVE AT THE DUBLIN CASTLE, CAMDEN. HOSTED BY JULIE HAMILL. FIRST WEDS OF EVERY MONTH!
