Starting off the week with something loud, fast and out-of-control. The Libertines, in concert at T In The Park, recorded earlier in the month by the venerable BBC 6 Music.
Characterized by controversy, volatility and a generous nod to Garage Rock, The Libertines, after taking a ten year break, reunited last year and are picking up where they left off.
Famous for his bouts of wretched excess, co-founder Pete Doherty is back in fine form, having successfully spent time at a rehab in Thailand and, by all appearances – clean-and-sober look like they are sticking.
Their T In The Park gig is one of several headliners they are playing this Summer. By all accounts, the audience is glad to see them back. A New album, Anthems For Doomed Youth and a new lease on life; The Libertines are back for the long haul.
Stay tuned – play loud in the meantime.
