Art Will Save The World

24 Nov 2013

Singer songwriter Luke Haines flies back to his homeland to discuss his life as the perennial outsider of the British Music Scene. While left waiting to go on set, he attempts to piece together his life.

A great film The Quietus

Art may not save the world, but at least we have this Jude Rogers. Word Magazine

Through fragments of his existence thus far, comments from his contemporaries and friends, including musician Jarvis Cocker, novelist David Peace and Arthur Matthews, amongst others, he discusses his work, legacy, and struggles. His wry commentaries respect few boundaries and his musical arrangements are uniquely suited to both the worlds of music and film. He is equally at home writing about teenage sex, terrorism, pop/film stars, child murder or broken love affairs, yet the instrumental versions of his tunes stand firm. Here we meet again the forgotten man.
