Neil Fraser: Long Shadows, High Hopes - The Life And Times Of Matt Johnson & The The


Publisher: Omnibus Press
Artist: Matt Johnson
Author: Neil Fraser
Format: Books | Biography

From life in an East End pub to fame on a global stage, Matt Johnson – founder, songwriter and visionary lynchpin of iconic band The The – created some of the most vital music of his era. Then he walked away from it all.

In this authorised biography, with free access to the The The archives, working from hundreds of hours of interviews with Johnson and his contemporaries and colleagues – including Johnny Marr, Johanna St Michaels, JG Thirlwell and Tim Pope – Neil Fraser has drawn back the curtain on brilliant enigma Matt Johnson.

From early days to glory days, through the paths of Johnson’s retreat from public life and return with The The in 2017, this is the incredible story of an intensely private and talented man, who’s made a success of living on his own terms.
