Product description

Review

"These recollections could be mistaken for a great comic novel... Haines is as funny as he is grumpy" (Independent on Sunday)

"Haines' prolific spleen, pasty English wit and peerless way with a smartly tailored insult was always going to make this memoir essential reading" (Time Out)

"Beautifully acerbic and elegant. . . a viciously funny writer" (Q Magazine)

"A lavishly bitchy memoir packed with gripes, grievances and tall stories told at the expense of other more famous musicians ... Haines has constructed a vivid literary persona for himself as the great, grumpy Nearly Man of 1990s rock ... He pours endless scorn on his amiable peers, who bizarrely seem not to mind or even notice ... Rock's misanthrope in excelsis" (The Sunday Times)

"As entertaining as Spinal Tap" (Guardian)

About the Author

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 - since then he has fronted other acts including Baader Meinhof and Black Box Recorder.
