Eston Arts Centre is pleased to announce its upcoming exhibition, Uncanny Island by Luke Haines. Uncanny Island is Luke Haines debut art exhibition. The show features a Fall Xmas Tree and psychedelic visions – in acrylic and oils on canvas – of British wrestlers from the 1970s and early ’80s.
Luke Haines has been a singer/songwriter for three decades first with The Auteurs, whose debut album ‘New Wave’ was nominated for the 1993 Mercury prize. His next group Black Box Recorder scored a hit and a Top Of The Pops appearance with ‘The Facts Of Life’ (2000). Luke’s memoir ‘Bad Vibes – Britpop And My Part In Its Downfall’ was a bestselling book in 2009. From the early 2000s Haines has released 14 solo albums, plus collaborations with the acclaimed Irish songwriter Cathal Coughlan in 2011 (‘The North Sea Scrolls’) and REM’s Peter Buck on the acclaimed 2020 album ‘Beat Poetry For The Survivalist’. His latest album ‘Luke Haines In …Setting The Dogs On The Post Punk Postman’ is out now and he tours the UK with Peter Buck in September.
