Fantastic book on the second half of Luke Haines career If you ve never heard of him please google his name he s a genius I like Haines because in my mind he s the last n the line of muscians artists writers who were my mind he s the last Seducing a Wallflower in the line of muscians artists writers who were aware of 20th century artn all mediums filmmusicvisual artlit and didn t give a Fk about conforming to commercial pressures until when he wanted to facts of life and had a brief fling with chart success This book charts that period and although not as wonderful as the first book Haine s voice The Snowy Day (Peter, is snarky sharp and precise as alwaysLuke Haine s musics not for everyone and his writing might appear too cynical to some but Unseen New Evidence - The origin of life under the microscope in a way I m glad that he remains an outsider free to keep working on whatever project takes his fancy Never a dull moment with Luke This was a book I found all butmpossible to disentangle from my own memories of the time Blue Boat it relates to I m reading Luke Haines two memoirs out of seuence because the local library happened to have the second onen stock when a post on Goodreads reminded me that they existed I d heard him talking about the first volume years ago on Steve Lamac s Round Table and mentally filed t away on my ever growing to read list I don on Steve Lamac s Round Table and mentally filed t away on my ever growing to read list I don know that this mattered I know that the Auteurs were the under achievers of mid 90s British Conscience indie rock and that Luke Haines had a great talent for self sabotage strange though to think now that New Wave made all the best of lists at the end of 1993 but a year later Now I m a Cowboy which to my earss both a accessible and a nteresting record was nowhere to be seen Had he really made so many enemies so uicklyAnyway the book begins with a sort of stream of consciousness ramble post everything about the end of the period when pop music was actually a major part of British culture or at least I think that s the point he s trying to make over a period of time which pretty much coincided with when I stopped reading the weekly music press listening to the Evening Session on Radio 1 or arguing with strangers on the nternet about the merits or otherwise of whatever was flavour of the week at wwwnmecom Looking back I thought I d just outgrown The Seventh Day it but reading Haines I wonderf t was alternative music tself that had backed The Devils Jug, the Crying Tree Me itselfnto a corner and run out of Ramesses ideas I m sure there were people doing genuinelynteresting things somewhere but The Irish Warrior it wasn t coming to my attention I struggled to see why the music press was getting excited about Razorlight or the bloody Libertines Maybef I d been ten years younger they would have been my bands or maybe I wouldn t have been Baby, Im Back! (Return to Redemption, interestedn music at allThe book proper kicks off with the formation of Black Box Recorder described The Betrayal (The Siege in the chapter heading as Chas Dave with a Chanteuse the chapter headings are a part of the book s appeal The Rock and Roll Arthur Scargill or a particular favourite of mine describing his encounter with selfmportant vegetarian Chrissie Hynde Sausage Nuremburg I was sort of familiar with Black Box Recorder as their second album and by Haines account their best was amongst a pile of CDs my partner The Draining Lake (Inspector Erlendur in crime at a by then doomednternet start up had left with me when he ran away to the other side of the world to get away from t all we were sort of trying to do Facebook six years too early and online community trying to do Facebook six years too early and online community was never uite as snappy a term as social networking The account of how successive record companies kept giving them development money to go record and mix songs that they then wouldn t release and perhaps goes some way to explaining why the music ndustry ended up on A Heros Welcome its knees a few years laterInterspersed with this are a series of comic dwamsn which Haines finds himself Finding Normal in conversation with a talking cat and with the dead rappers Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls about his solo project which he describes as a kind of white English hip hop concept album The Oliver Twist Manifesto I confess I had to loo.
