ROCK AND ROLL ANIMALS, OUT NEXT WEEK, IS A GLORIOUSLY TWISTED CONCEPT ALBUM BY LUKE HAINES – EX-FRONTMAN OF THE AUTEURS, BLACK BOX RECORDER AND BAADER MEINHOF. BILLED AS “A PSYCHEDELIC STORY FOR GROWN-UPS”, IT FEATURES A TRIO OF UNLIKELY CHARACTERS…
In this edition of The Mouthcast, rock ‘n’ roll raconteur extraordinaire Haines explains his “calling” to write a story pitting Sham 69’s Jimmy Pursey (as a friendly fox), Nick Lowe (as a badger) and Gene Vincent (as “a cat who’s seen a bit more of life than most of us”), against “a fuck ugly bird from Tyneside made of steel and wire”, The Angel Of The North, in a back garden in Walton-On-Thames, his Surrey birthplace.
He also discusses the 1990s, a musical era subject to his scathing eye in the excellent book BRITPOP AND MY PART IN ITS DOWNFALL.
