After Murder Park by a country mile. Not because the others are bad; just not as good. Favourite Steve Albini production as well. The cultural cringer in me appreciated the nice things Mr Albini had to say about Mr Haines afterwards.

A friend of mine compared Luke Haines to a contemporary version of Ian Anderson - which I thought borderline insane at the time but I now think he had a point - not overly concerned with being liked, rules musicians with an iron fist, the wordiness, albums that give the impression of being damned close to concept albums,albums that are concept albums, spiky skewed little songs...

Listening to loads of MF Doom/Madvillain at the mo, to go completely off point. Very good. Get a load of this Afro-Futurist fans -

Sorry, don't get much time to post. So on the rare occasions I have anything to say it all comes out at once.

Bollocks - Solo records (although I don't think it makes much difference in this case). Baader Meinhoff then. Listened to it a little too often back in the day to appreciate it now.

I Like the Baader Meinhof record, it's a bit funkier than the usual Haines fair.
Also have quite a soft spot for the debut 'New Wave' album. That 'Brirtish Nulcear bunkers' gets a few pins as well. TBH, if it has Haines on it, I usually pick it up.

Noticed there's a recent 4CD 'collection of post 2001' up on Amazon at the minute...well he kept that quiet.

To answer your original question ... Really hard to choose one solo album as I am a massive Luke Haines fan. Probably, I would go for The North Sea Scrolls (although this one is really a collaboration), closely followed by British Nuclear Bunkers and Off My Rocker at the Art School Bop. Would also have to give an honourable mention to Freqs, the entirely instrumental Moog album that came with Electronic Sound magazine a year or so ago.

My all time favourite Luke Haines work would still have to be New Wave though.

I don't think that it's still available in the shops. You can order back issues online. Shipping to Portugal doesn't look like it costs too much

North Sea Scrolls, although mainly because it has Cathal Coughlan on it, who is one of my favourite artists. Plus a song about Morris dancing.
