I Don't Take Requests Summary

I Don't Take Requests: INCLUDES EXCLUSIVE NEW MATERIAL by Tony Marnoch


'Refreshing, inspiring and candid.' ATTITUDE

'I love this man so much. He was, and always will be, my knight in shining Westwood.' DAVINA MCCALL

'This is a story that should never have been told' KATE MOSS

'The perfect beach read' THE SUNDAY TIMES

'If you want to change your life but can't.. I strongly advise you read this book' TRACEY EMIN

As one of club culture's most notorious - and best loved - figures, Tony is a complete force of nature.

Here he tells the most extraordinary stories of depravity and hedonism, of week-long benders and extreme self-destruction - and of recovery, redemption, friendship and the joy of a good tune.

'Anyone can get a party started, but no one keeps it going like Fat Tony, the energy never dips and
what a life he's lived.. He's a tosser but we still love him.' ELTON JOHN & DAVID FURNISH


Harrowing, honest and funny, this is the candid and outrageous memoir of a life of extremes. It's a story of getting it all and losing it all. Addiction, recovery, and starting again. Drawing a vivid portrait of Britain's street culture from the 1980s to the noughties, DJ Fat Tony describes his childhood on a London estate where he honed his petty criminality, was abused by an older man and became best friends with Boy George. He spent his teenage years parading the Kings Road in his latest (mostly stolen) clobber, worked as a receptionist at a brothel, hung out with Leigh Bowery and Andy Warhol, and created his drag persona, before becoming DJ to the stars (including Prince and Madonna) and spiralling into a life-threatening drug addiction.

This is a story of loss and redemption and living to tell all the tales in glorious, funny and often heart-breaking detail, from one of social media's best-loved meme-thieves and the world-renowned DJ.


'There is nobody in London, let alone the world who has lived a more extraordinary life... his journey from villain to real life hero is one of the most beautiful examples of humanity I have ever witnessed. I wouldn't be without this c*nt.' KELLY OSBOURNE

'Hearing Tony's story is brutal and shocking. He is nothing short of a miracle and his willingness to be of service to others seeking sobriety is testament to how far he has come from the days of pulling his own teeth out.' MARC JACOBS

About Tony Marnoch

Tony Marnoch (Author)
Fat Tony - real name Tony Marnoch - is the 16-years sober DJ who first found fame on the London social scene in the 1980s as a DJ, best mate of Boy George, and any other name you might want to mention from the time. He has played for everyone from Prince to Madonna, and club-hopped his way through the '90s with friends such as George Michael, Neneh Cherry and Kate Moss. A messy drug affair led to a spell in rehab, and he has since enjoyed a renaissance in life, becoming one of fashion's favourite acts as Vogue's resident DJ, and Donatella Versace and Victoria Beckham's go-to party guy. He does this whilst being a leading voice on the sobriety scene, an LGBTQ activist and has recently found a new legion of fans through his social media account of irreverent memes, becoming an unlikely hero of lockdown.
