Edinburgh Fringe: Luke Haines/ The Horne Section

Edinburgh Fringe: Luke Haines/ The Horne Section

An Auteur speaks, and comedy meets music

Luke Haines: the former Auteurs man has a story to tell

If the cards had fallen differently Luke Haines might have been as big as Blur. As frontman of The Auteurs he was briefly tipped for Britpop greatness, so it is no surprise that he likes the idea of alternative histories. This special show, The North Sea Scrolls, was all about them, as Haines, former Microdisney linchpin Cathal Coughlan, writer Andrew Mueller and cellist Audrey Riley mixed spoken word with punchy lo-fi melodies.


Can you shed any light as to what time Luke Haines came on stage last night? Cheers.

8pm prompt. done by 10pm. i'd been led to believe there would be a Q&A afterwards, which might have shed more light on the background and motivations behind the project, but the oldies encore more than made up for it.
