A revitalized Youtube brings us more Haines action, this time in the form of acoustic barnstormers from the Bootboys era.

The crucial question would be, is anyone savy enough to turn these things into audio files that we may cherish them always?

The bot has his streaming audio capturerer software to do that, I think?

Not that we should be discussing it on a public forum. Possibly.

Maybe.

Firefox has an add-on that enables you to save Youtube (and other flash video) clips as files. Presumably the same can be done as audio...

Say hello to The Black Arts as they bid for Christmas Number One. Yes, that's Roy Haines, Noddy Moore, and Frosty Moore of Black Box Recorder teaming up with Eddie Argos of Art Brut. Catchy!

The Indelicates have had one mention on the Palimp before now (nice one, Hiinton), and I think that other Hainesians will enjoy their intelligent misanthropy and arrogance. Plus, the guy has a more than passing sound-a-like quality, reminiscent of LH.

If you can find 'em, I'd suggest a quick three-track playlist to break the seal:

The Last Significant Statement To Be Made In Rock'n'Roll
We Hate The Kids
Waiting for Pete Doherty to Die

They're still a small-venue band, so may be hard to track down, but very much worth it.

And under work now is the book:

Bad Vibes: Britpop and My Part In Its Downfall by Luke Haines

Heinemann has secured the rights to a "blackly comic" memoir by Luke Haines, lead singer of cult nineties indie band The Auteurs.
Bad Vibes: Britpop and My Part in Its Downfall was acquired by Jason Arthur and will be published in January 2009. It has been described by the publisher as a "scathing, blackly comic memoir of a legendary figure in the music world of the 90's who is variously heralded as the pioneer, the godfather, or the forgotten man of Britpop".

I realise I'm coming in a little late here, but I saw one of these gigs and it was painfully short. I enjoyed it, but felt extremely short-changed. He should have had a break and then done another 50 minutes. Shortly after this Luke was getting a lot of stick on the forum of lukehaines.co.uk and the cowards removed the forum completely!

However, these criticisms aside, I must take issue with the "busker level" comment here! Haines is a very solid acoustic guitar player indeed. Not flashy, but what he does solo should not be underestimated.
