Peter Buck was the guitarist for the biggest band in the world – R.E.M.
Luke Haines was the guitarist for the Auteurs. The Auteurs were not the biggest band in the world. They were pretty good though.
Luke Haines also does paintings of Lou Reed.
One day, Peter Buck bought one of Luke Haines’ Lou Reed paintings. They had never met before but decided that the fates had brought them together and they should write some songs together and make an album.
‘Beat Poetry For Survivalists’ is that album
(released in March 2020 on Cherry Red Records)
