Bad Vibes: Britpop and my part in its downfall

Being in a band is about petty and not so petty jealousies schadenfreude, minor triumphs and ultimately failure. Haines captures this better than anyone else and is funnier than anyone else about it. Read whilst listening to the songs. Brilliant.

Mostly he talk of the 90s when he was playing that kind of music in that time. Not before as much. I think at the end of the book he stop writing it. I like the way it carries on, you know? In like a flow of time. Good stuff. Suede are here too.

Arrogant, insightful, fun, angry. The best book I've read about the britpop era delivered in an acerbic fashion. His honesty about his feelings are a bonus - usually with this kind of book there is a distinct lack of that - but he is honest.

Witty, bitchy, honest, deceitful, vain, self-deprecating, laugh out loud funny, depressing, unable to spell Alfa Romeo properly. But for the last point it would be perfect.

This is one of the best rock biogs I have read: honest, witty, funny and written in a tone which suggests he has come to realise that he was a bit of an arse himself.

If you like it told brutally with the venom of an angry snake which has been forced to listen to 'Parklife' for 3 weeks in the dark, then you may like this

Luke Haines has written an honest amusing account of his involvement with the 1990's British music scene. It is clear that Britpop wasn't all his fault afterall. Its worth reading for any fans of British music & told by probably the greatest English songwriter / reluctant light entertainer / musical genius of all time.

Luke Haines seems to think he's Genesis P Orridge rather than an (emminently listenable) singer/songwriter. I enjoyed the bitchiness mind

Bitter and twisted but incredibly funny and hugely enjoyable. If you liked Brit Pop... don't read this!
