Summary
There were many reasons Moby was never going to make it as a DJ and musician in the New York club scene of the late 1980s and early 90s. He was not just a poor, skinny white kid from deepest Connecticut, but a devout Christian, a vegan, and a teetotaler, in a scene that was known for its unchecked drug-fuelled hedonism. By the end of the decade, Moby contemplated the end of things, in his career and elsewhere in his life, and he put that emotion into what he assumed would be his swan song, the album that would be in fact the beginning of an astonishing new phase in his life, the multimillion-selling 'Play'. 'Porcelain' is about making it, losing it, loving it, and hating it. It's about finding your people, and your place, thinking you've lost them both, and then, finally, somehow, creating a masterpiece
