Luke Haines announces one-off show

The singer will play London later this month

Luke Haines has announced details of a one-off show set to take place in London later this month.

The singer will be appearing at the Islington Academy on January 25 with a full band and playing a career-spanning set.

The gig is also likely to include the former Auteurs frontman debuting material from his new solo album – rumoured to be called ‘Off My Rocker At The Art School Bop’ – due for release in May.


Potential tracks from the LP include ‘The Walton Hop’, ‘Freddie Mills Is Dead’, ‘Leeds United’ and ‘Bad Reputation (The Glitter Band)’.

Haines’ last release – a retrospective CD box set entitled ‘Luke Haines Is Dead’ – was released in July last year and featured solo work alongside tracks by The Auteurs, Baader Meinhof and Black Box Recorder.
