Book Description

5 April 2012

In Post Everything, Luke Haines demonstrates that the only way to survive the tyrannical scourge of Britpop is to become an Outsider. The 'avant-garde Arthur Scargill' calls upon the nation's pop stars to down tools and go on strike. We learn the story of Haines' post-Britpop art house trio Black Box Recorder (Chas and Dave with a chanteuse), we meet a talking cat, two dead rappers (Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur), and a mystical England football manager. Haines even finds time to write a musical for the National Theatre.

Blisteringly funny and searingly scathing, Post Everything may quite possibly be the first and only truly surreal comic rock memoir. It even contains a killer recipe for scrambled eggs.

Product Description

Review

"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)

5.0 out of 5 stars Arrogant, Yes, But... 29 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback
Arrogant and stylish with it, this book is almost the equal of Bad Vibes. Well worth a read for Haines fans.

The man is a modern English marvel, with a talent for disfunction. This book and its companion Bad Vibes are essential reading for anyone with an interest in English Rock music.

4.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining read 9 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback
Post Everything covers Luke Haines' career from Black Box Recorder onwards. Whilst never quite finding the perfect balance of humour, grumpiness and cynicism as Bad Vibes, this book is still excellent. As with the previous book, the view of Britpop from the perspective of someone that didn't want to be a part of it makes for entertaining reading. I would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in the Britpop era, or in Haines' career.

1.0 out of 5 stars Arrogant, moi? 7 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Oh, this was hellish. I read 'Bad Vibes' and enjoyed the memory lane Britpop nostalgia of it all, but this one was flogging a dead horse to death. Luke Haines with his vitriol to EVERYONE. 'Sarcasm' has destroyed the UK, and Luke Haines is the epitome of that.

Oh, and the book was dull. The end.
