Luke Haines was born in 1967 in Walton-on Thames. After a brief spell with Creation band The Servants in the late 1980s, he formed the Auteurs. Their debut album, New Wave, was a major influence on what was laughably called Britpop. It was also short-listed for the prestigious Mercury Music Prize. Since then Luke has released many critically-acclaimed albums as the Auteurs, under his own name and with the popular Black Box Recorder group. He has even released a revered concept album about ‘70s terrorism called Baader Meinhof. Surprisingly, he has appeared on BBC1’s Top Of The Pops.
