You get all the good stuff on Luke Haines' Setting the Dogs on the Post-Punk Postman: oblique references, great tunes, and lyrics often laugh-out-loud funny.

God Is in the TV

There are 11 songs included here, each every bit as immersive as the last ... If this was Luke’s lockdown project, then maybe we should endure lockdown a little more often.

Record Collector
Haines sniffs out scuffed gold wherever he roams, never failing to deliver the unexpected and unrestrained.

Barking and biting: more difficult fun from the renegade Auteur ... This latest outing has no story arc, but offers plenty of glowering.

Despite the weirdness, this album brings a surprised feeling of comfort that takes the edge off.
Spectrum Culture
The themes and caustic observations have much in common with Mark E Smith, but while the Fall were at times wilfully abrasive and uncommercial, Haines has an unerring consistency for writing memorable hooks.
