Refresh and try again. Gareth Evans 's review Dec 25, Sleeper were very much 2nd division Britpop. However Smart is one of my favourite albums of the era.
Just for One Day
Strong melodies, great lyrics and fronted by the gauche, girl next door Louise Wener. The book explains how the Jackie-loving, pop-obsessed teenager became a minor pop celebrity. Wener seems to acknowledge that there are few dedicated Sleeper fans out there seeking a blow-by-blow account of the band's rise and fall and wisely sticks to answering the question of how rock fame is achieved and what it is like to be moderately famous.

Name required. Just For One Day takes you on Louise Wener's musical odyssey from awkward 80s suburban pop geek to 90s jet-set Britpop goddess. Of course, once she's living the dream at the height of Britpop's glory, things aren't quite how they appeared from the other side. With her band Sleeper, Louise goes from doing gigs in toilets to gigs in stadiums, and on to the big interviews, constant touring and endless excess via Top of the Pops.
