Goldie to publish “gonzo” memoir, All Things Remembered

The book will follow the release his first album since 1998.

Drum and bass pioneer Goldie is to release a book on November 2, a “gonzo” memoir titled All Things Remembered.

Arriving on UK publisher Faber, the “uncensored, hard-hitting” book will detail the DJ and producer’s life from the West Midlands care home system to through his experience in the rave scene and beyond.

“It is an explosive story abuse, revenge, graffiti, gold teeth, sawn-f shotguns, car crashes, hot yoga, absent fatherhood, and redemption through reality TV,” Faber says in a press release.

All Things Remembered is not just the story how and why, it’s everything from the children’s homes to the Whispering Wheels roller-disco to rolling with the graffiti kings New York to writing with David Bowie to reinventing myself as the Dorian Gray fucking breakbeat,” Goldie says in a press release.

“It’s a music book like no other, and I’m very excited to be working with Faber and Ben Thompson to get my dreams down on paper.”

All Things Remembered follows the release The Journey Man, Goldie’s first studio album since 1998. The two-part album is reportedly influenced by his interest in film, specifically Stanley Kubrick.

In 2015, the artist was awarded an MBE in the New Year’s Honours list, which he threatened to melt down if Fabric was closed.
