“Getting the band get back together was really something, but nothing could come close to having a cup of tea in Stockport with Simon Morrison” says Howard Donald of Take That
From Las Vegas to Moscow, New York to Shanghai, DISCOMBOBULATED features fifty unbelievably true tales of high living and low-cost slumming, with a celebrity cast featuring Kylie Minogue, Take That, Paul Oakenfold, Fatboy Slim, Coolio, gangster Dave Courtney and many more.
Revered clubbing correspondent Simon A. Morrison (DJmag, Ministry of Sound) takes readers on a pocket-sized, decade-spanning tour of the nightlife of five continents, bringing together the snappiest, wittiest and hippest dispatches of the last eight years, to make one of the classic books of the clubbing generation.
SIMON A. MORRISON BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION
Simon A. Morrison has been writing wrongs for some fifteen years, working for everyone from Loaded to the Manchester Evening News, as well as presenting TV and radio. Highlights include editing Ministry of Sound’s magazine on the party island of Ibiza for two summers and writing two long-running columns — Dispatches From The Wrong Side and Around The World in 80 Clubs — which appeared in DJmag and took Simon everywhere from Beijing to Brazil, Marrakech to Manchester.
Having grown up in London and lived in Ibiza, Amsterdam, Sydney and Los Angeles, Simon sees himself as something of a citizen of the global dancefloor. More recently, however, his life has become more sedentary… he currently has a Masters Degree in Novel Writing and resides in Stockport with his wife, four children, three chickens, home brewery and psychotropic ailments of varying degrees of magnitude.
