Brilliant Book Titles #85

Post-modern? Post-post modern? Nope, I’m post-everything, says Mr. Haines (which is a very Hainesian statement). Luke Haines, as well as having a solo career and founding the bands The Auteurs, Baader Meinhof and Black Box Recorder, is also notable for being a wonderful grouch who does things like call a National Pop Strike when asked to promote a new album!

Blurb:
In Post Everything, Luke Haines demonstrates that the only way to survive the tyrannical scourge of Britpop is to become an Outsider. The ‘avant-garde Arthur Scargill’ calls upon the nation’s pop stars to down tools and go on strike. We learn the story of Haines’ post-Britpop art house trio Black Box Recorder (Chas and Dave with a chanteuse), we meet a talking cat, two dead rappers (Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur), and a mystical England football manager. Haines even finds time to write a musical for the National Theatre.

Blisteringly funny and searingly scathing, Post Everything may quite possibly be the first and only truly surreal comic rock memoir. It even contains a killer recipe for scrambled eggs.
