Landmark album by one of the most original and uncompromising artists of the past 50 years. The self-declared genius behind this group is of course Luke Haines, and, as will aready be obvious, I agree with his declaration. I like his worst music and love his best. This album from 1993 and the first in the Auteurs series contains some of his very best. Tracks like Showgirl, How can I be wrong and Starstruck are standouts. Showgirl gets to a point where you don't think anything could get any better - but then it does just that during the guitar solo which makes up the last 30 seconds. He's been likened to the Kinks and Bowie, but, while the influence may be there, he does not sound like them; he sounds like Luke Haines, and, if there is any justice, which there is not of course, he'll eventually be remembered as just as important.
