I Blame Morrissey

My Adventures with Indie-Pop and Emotional Disaster

by Jamie Jones


You wouldn't let song lyrics rule your life would you? 

You wouldn't become so infatuated with a pop star that you would use their words to make decisions on your relationships would you? 

Jay would. 

Join him as he tries to grow up in the 90s in a haze of lust, indie-pop & warm lager while all the time looking to Morrissey for guidance.

I don't want to ruin the end for you, but it definitely isn't Morrissey's fault. --Julie Hamill, Author and Mozarmy Founder

Like all good books should, this will make you laugh and cry. It's from the heart, brutally honest at times, and features music and football - what's not to love? --Adrian Durham, Talksport Presenter

I love it!!! You need to read this book! --Ron Kirkpatick, Papa Bear from TV's Storage Hunters and a big Morrissey fan

Author Biography

Jamie is a 38 year old father of two whose wife has made him store his CD collection in the loft. I Blame Morrissey is loosely based on his experiences of love, life and using Morrissey's lyrics to help him through his formative years. The obsession with Morrissey is, unfortunately, very real and he has the tattoos to prove it. Jamie's wife would like to point out that, had he told her the tales contained within this book prior to their wedding, she would never have married him. He gave up indie-djing in 2011 and instead can now be found playing tunes in his kitchen on a Friday evening and putting them out on twitter via #KitchenDisco. I Blame Morrissey will be Jamie's 3rd book and his first not based on his beloved Peterborough United FC. He is due to start work on his new novel 'Far From Me' (a darkly comedic tale of a man who leaves his girlfriend for another man whilst at Glastonbury) in 2015.
