16. Luke Haines - Bad Vibes: Britpop And My Part In Its Downfall (2009)
Haines was the singer and songwriter in early 90s quartet The Auteurs and found himself inadvertently part of the Britpop hype. He wasn't having any of it and this book wryly details his heroic underachievement, from missing out on the Mercury Music Prize to splitting the band in favour of the impenetrable Baader Meinhof, who flirted with terrorist imagery. A cautionary, yet hilarious tale.
