THE AUTEURS

Originally released in May 1994, Now I’m A Cowboy was The Auteurs second album. Produced by Phil Vinall and Luke Haines, it was a more than worthy successor to the Mercury Music Prize nominated New Wave and is home to probably their best known song, Lenny Valentino.

The 2CD expanded edition, compiled by Luke Haines, features a wealth of bonus material including key b-sides, 2 complete BBC radio sessions of the time plus an unreleased live recording of the band performing at Leeds Town And Country Club in December 93 where they supported The The.

“My only regret is I didn't know just how good this stuff was at the time. Sure, I knew we were on to something. But really, 'After Murder Park’ ...fucking Woah!” Luke Haines, 2014

After Murder Park is the third album from The Auteurs, originally released in March 1996.

Recorded in under two weeks at Abbey Road Studios, it marked a new direction and needed a new sound provided by the production of Steve Albini. Luke Haines considers the recording sessions the high point of The Auteurs career.

The expanded edition, compiled by Haines, features a wealth of bonus material including key B-sides, a John Peel session plus the entire unreleased recording of their Black Session recorded for Inter France radio station in March 1996.

How I Learned To Love The Bootboys - Expanded Edition

The Auteurs fourth and ultimately final album, How I Learned To Love The Bootboys was released in July 1999, a 3-year gap since their previous release, After Murder Park, a period during which Luke Haines released albums as part of Black Box Recorder and under the guise of Baader Meinhof.

This expanded edition, compiled by Luke Haines, features 40 tracks including key b-sides and rarities plus 5 previously unreleased tracks. The second disc features the band’s final gig recorded at London School Of Economics in November 1999. This is the first time it’s been on CD, having been briefly available as a download previously.

“On listening to '...Bootboys' again, I'm actually surprised how focussed it sounds. There's a straightforward 'pop side' and an unstraightforward 'experimental' side. My only regret is not putting more on the album – really stretching it out and making it a sprawling double, songs like 'Breaking Up' and 'Get Wrecked At Home' were far too good for B-sides.” Luke Haines 2014
