Haines is the great underrated maverick of British alternative pop. Over 20
years, and in a variety of guises - including The Auteurs and Baader Meinhof -
he has been an acerbic observer of the human condition.
magnificent career-spanning 2CD collection features all of his Greatest Hits,
ones that, from Showgirl to Lenny Valentino and beyond, prove that lyrically and
in terms of melodic sensibility Haines is as insightful and impressive as any
songwriter of the last two decades.
