Morrissey sets release date for Autobiography

Morrissey sets release date for Autobiography

The release date for Morrissey's Autobiography has been confirmed for October 17, according to a press release on the unofficial Morrissey fan site True-to-You. The book was originally supposed to be released in September but was stalled by a dispute between Morrissey and Penguin Classics, the book's publishers.

The book will be released in the UK and Europe priced at £8.99, and will also be available as an ebook. The book is now available for preorder on Amazon.

Beacons Festival To Storm Skipton

Posted July 20, 2013, 9:49 p.m.

Following on from a successful 2012, North Yorkshire's Beacons Festival looks set to be their biggest year yet, taking place on 16th-18th August. Noted as a diverse, communal event in a quiet location - think Glastonbury beyond the M25 - the lineup has expanded to include some of the hottest names in contemporary music. This ranges from arty rock n' rollers Django Django to gruff Canadian punks Fucked Up, the stabbing rhymes of Michigan rapper Danny Brown and the chilly post-punk of WIRE. Other events include all night literature readings, Q&A sessions with actors and writers, yoga and film showings. Overall, much is on offer for a ticket price more than competitive with the UK's currently money-grubbing festival environment. And with this weather, chuck your boots and grab your sandals, this will be one weekend to remember. 

Django Django, Danny Brown, Gold Panda, Fucked Up, Theo Parrish , Eats Everything, David Rodigan Obe, Oneman, Floating Points, Ben Ufo, Moon Duo, Andres, Dutch Uncles, Bondax, Esben & The Witch, Bicep, Egyptian Hip Hop, Machine Drum, Channel One Sound System, Move D, Chad Valley, Jon K (hoya Hoya), Hookworms, Childhood, Temples, Drenge, Wolf Alice, Jaws Thumpers, Wire, Eagulls
