Matt Johnson - though known foremost as the creative force behind THE THE - is a musician, songwriter, performer, film soundtrack composer, publisher, broadcaster and conservationist/local activist.

Written with the cooperation of Matt and with full access to his archives, this is the first official biography of one of the UK alternative music scene's major figures.

From life in an East End pub to fame on a global stage, 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, 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 the brilliant but enigmatic artist.

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.

Active since 1979, THE THE returned bigger than ever, selling out the Royal Albert Hall in seven minutes as they play their first gigs in over sixteen years.
