The greatest musical autobiography ever?

Currently reading "Bad vibes" by Luke Haines.

Anyone familiar with Haines's work with The Auteurs, Baader-Meinhoff, Black Box Recorder and solo, will know the following two facts-

1- he has a really remarkable way with words. A genuinely elegant writer.

2- he's possibly the most misanthropic man ever to make music.

And now he's written his autobiography, and I can't put it down. It's hilarious, and staggeringly bitchy. I can't believe it got past the libel lawyers. For anyone who's ever scratched a living around the arse-end of the music industry while remaining firmly convinced of their undiscovered genius, this is the book to read.

May he live forever, and knock out some more albums in the process.
