Techno artist Moby has led a very colorful life, and he tells all in his new memoir “Porcelain: A Memoir”, which comes out May 17. You can pre-order the book at Moby.la
The book covers his life from 1989 until 1999, when his magnum opus “Play” was released.
Thought to be a sober, Christian, virtuous person to many, he was quite depraved at times, and his memoir goes into extensive detail of his time in New York City, where one night he dropped off a tape at Mars, a multi-level dance club in the Meatpacking District, and got a call back to perform.
He describes in deadpan detail, encounters with numerous celebrities, including Madonna, David Bowie, Charlie Sheen and even O.J. Simpson. “O.J. Simpson dances like a black comedian imitating white people,” he observes.
The book also goes into the darker side of the techno clubs, including drugs such as ketamine, orgies, and even an encounter with a dominatrix. Moby also plans to accompany the book with a two disc compilation. The first volume traces Moby’s recorded output in the ‘80s and ‘90s, while the second captures music that he liked enough to play during his early-career DJ sets.
Moby has also recently opened the vegan restaurant Little Pine in Los Angeles’ Silver Lake neighborhood, with all profits to be donated to various animal welfare groups.
Moby will do a book tour to promote “Porcelain” starting on its release date, May 17 in New York. You can get tickets at Moby.com.
