Notă biografică

Luke Haines learned guitar in the red light district of Portsmouth and subsequently formally studied music at the London College of Music. His band The Auteurs missed out on the 1992 Mercury Music Prize by one vote. His first memoir, Bad Vibes, was published in 2009.


"Haines was always too clever to be a pop star...As a writer, though, he's a national treasure-in-waiting, cutting through the pomp with drily hilarious anecdotes. Post Everything sums up the silliness of the indie scene perfectly." Mail on Sunday "Post Everything is written with such authority that it suggests that Haines has finally found his calling ... He brilliantly describes two years of futile effort, and the true pain of collaborative endeavours...But Haines's pain provides our pleasure." -- Matt Thorne Independent "Luke Haines: genius. I'm pretty sure he'd hate being called a genius, while secretly thinking, Yes, I am one. He is one ... An astute observer of what's going down ... Post Everything is worth your while." -- Andrew Collins "Reads like being regaled in the pub by a brilliantly indiscreet misanthrope ... Hilarious." Metro "Thrilling...Against the backdrop of a collapsing music business, the rise of Simon Cowell, reality TV, war, and the great New labour disappointment, this is that very British of things - a celebration of heroic failure...Now that Luke Haines' musical memoirs are complete...let's see where he casts his gimlet eye and chooses to let his pen run next." NME, Book of the Week
