A new coffee table photography book by Patrice de Villiers will be hitting the shelves today, Monday 5th September, in support of the Teenage Cancer Trust.
Love Music Love Food is billed as “The Rockstar Cook Book” and it features a series stunning photographs of celebrated musicians with their favourite foods. The reason we’re writing about it here (besides it being a great book for a great cause) is because Noel Fielding graces its pages.
Noel has been an enthusiastic supporter of TCT for a number of years, performing at the charity’s annual Albert Hall comedy night for four out of the past five years. He appears in the Love Music Love Food book alongside Kasabian.
The photograph featuring Noel and the band is an homage to the Rolling Stones album Beggars Banquet. The original image was taken in 1968 by photographer Michael Joseph, and graces the inner sleeve of the album. The Love Music Love Food piece also includes an interview with Noel and Kasabian’s Serge Pizzorno, in which they discuss their favourite foods and their friendship.
The hard cover book is priced at £30 and is available from book retailers or TCT’s online store. While it’s not cheap, as the press release for the book states: “A galaxy of music stars including Noel Gallagher, Kasabian, Paul Weller, Brandon Flowers, Brian May, Siouxsie Sioux & over 60 others have let us in on which food or drink keeps their star shining & allowed us to smother them in Marmite, cover naked torsos with Haggis & tatties, pelt them with dayglo cupcakes to help young people with cancer.” So definitely worth the cover price!
