Paul Du Noyer's newest book is the biography of Deaf School, the influential art-rock band formed 40 years ago in Liverpool. Paul's writing career began on Britain's legendary music weekly the New Musical Express. He later joined the launch team of Q magazine, becoming its editor in the early 1990s. He was then the founding editor of Mojo magazine and later worked on the launches of Heat and The Word. Along the way his interviewees have ranged from Paul McCartney to Pavarotti, and Madonna to David Bowie. His first full-length book was We All Shine On, a study of John Lennon's solo years, later re-published as Working Class Hero. It was followed by Wondrous Place, about the popular music of his home town Liverpool. More recently there has been In The City: A Celebration Of London Music. All three have appeared in various updated editions, and the latter two books are now available on Kindle. Du Noyer has edited, or been a contributor or consultant, on many other titles besides.
