With Oli from the XX chatting to Nemone about the band's year.

Louise Wener was the lead singer of the band Sleeper and Britpop's biggest female star. She travelled the world at the height of their fame playing to hundreds of thousands and living the high life. In the early 90s Sleeper had three top ten albums, including the platinum-selling The It Girl before disbanding in 1998. Louise has since written four acclaimed novels and lives in Brighton with her husband and daughter.

Louise hand picks tracks for the Lunchtime Playlist including some Pixies, Hole, Nico and David Bowie.
