About this book
A hilarious and vicious memoir of the 1990s Britpop era, written by the frontman of The Auteurs. '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' "Sunday Times"
Forget Blur/Oasis and Cool Britannia. This book is the true story of English Rock in the nineties. It recounts how the author felt to ride a wave of self-congratulatory success in a world with no taste. It reveals the knuckle-headed musos, baffling tours, and an unravelling personal life.
