Default Re: The Greatest Genius Who Ever Lived 2: Luke Haines

Any Haines fans been given the latest much of a listen? I haven't. Underwhelmed by it, in fact.

Er... what was it called again? I've listened to it a few times, and like some of the songs very much (like 'What a Rotter', and 'Suburban Mourning'), but no, it does seem to be more Oliver Twist Manifesto than Off My Rocker.

It's more Christie Malry's, in that I've barely thought about it.

Just dug out the CD, which says Achtung Mutha, which means it's the second disc. Can't remember what the main album was called either.

Over two years on and who knew that Luke Haines had a new album out? Not me.

He's got another on the way. Last of the 'psychedelic trilogy' which started with British wrestling and continued with woodland animals fighting the Angel of the North.

All of the Auteurs albums are being reissued into the bargain. Busy boy.
