Pop outlaw and supreme memoirist, Luke Haines remains one of Britain's most delightfully individual voices.
Ever knowledgeable of pop culture, the songwriter is ready to unveil his next project. New mini-album 'Adventures In Dementia' is out on February 2nd - billed as a 'micro opera' it features Luke Haines and Scott King.
First performed as part of Scott King's 'Festival Of Stuff' over two nights in Berlin, July 2014, the work pits two rather opposing figures in British music against one another.
Here's the blurb:
A Mark E Smith impersonator and members of Fall Group are en route to a rock 'n' roll festival. Members of Fall Group are not aware that 'MES' is actually an MES imposter.
Smith is driving a battered Renault 5 and towing a Swift Swallow caravan (possibly under the influence of amphetamine sulphates and alcohol) when he crashes into an Austen Maestro. The Austin Maestro is being driven by a skinhead: Ian Stuart, lead singer of notorious 'white power' band Skrewdriver...
A truly unique prospect, the music more than matches the imagination. New track 'Caravan Man' is based on a rollicking rockabilly rhythm, with Luke Haines intoning some hilarious lyrics which speak of tracing a path across the land in a moveable home.
