4.0 out of 5 stars Puts the Boot into Britpop, 3 May 2010
By 
This review is from: Bad Vibes: Britpop and my part in its downfall (Paperback)
The Luke Haines revealed in this loose trawl through the 'Britpop' years of 1992-97 is an arrogant, ego-driven, abrasive, misanthropic, irresponsible, embittered old git. And the book is all the better for that. He skewers many [admittedly easy] targets, from record company suits to Chris Evans to obsessed fans to 'the north'[although, perversely, Noel Gallagher is allowed some positive comment] and also doesn't spare himself - the archetypal 'nearly man' whose success never quite matched his undoubted talent. The Auteurs, Hianes's original band were there at the start of Britpop, along with Suede, but fell by the wayside and Haines eventually had his biggest success years later with Black Box Recorder. Recommended, and with this volume ending in '97, there's hope that a sequel may appear at some stage.
