8) Luke Haines – Post-Everything
Zoe Howe’s top 10 music books : number 8
With a few exceptions, Brit-pop was not exactly my thing, so when I saw Luke’s first book was sub-titled ‘Brit-pop And My Part In Its Downfall’, I thought this was probably a man I’d like to shake vigorously by the hand. Anyway, Luke’s sense of humour just kills me, I love his writing and I cannot read his books without laughing out loud or getting whoever is near to stop what they’re doing and listen to yet another passage of sardonic prose a la Haines, punctuated with much hooting and sniggering. As a result, I never take his books on public transport.
