Sleeper: Wener Takes All

Ian Gittins, Melody Maker, 14 January 1995

1995 is set to be SLEEPER's year. The latest leading lights in the ongoing resurgence of Britpop brightened up last year with a string of pert and provocative indie hits, and now their stunning new single, 'Inbetweener', is set to consolidate their success and introduce them to a wider world. IAN GITTINS met outspoken singer LOUISE WENER in France and London and talked about love, life, sex, death, the myth of monogamy and the band's imminent world domination.
