In no way better than the Libertines.. Pete and Carl are an untouchable combo.

I love Pete and Carl the same, however, I do prefer Babyshambles musically over Dirty Pretty Things. I think Down in Albion is brilliant. I seriously haven't given Dirty Pretty Things as much time, but of course they're good. Still in no way will Shambles or Pretty Things ever compare to the Libertines.

There should be a supergroup tour of Babyshambles, Dirty Pretty Things, and Yeti. Ummm, how fucking amazing would that be!? And once all bands have played... the lead singer from each band plus the drummer from DPT comes out, and they do songs from the Libertines!!!

I would give anything to see that!!!

Just gotten into them... Loved Bang bang yer dead when it played on British radio and now they've got a new tune out (dont remember the tittle) but it's brilliant!!!

Love their sound... will try to find more about them...

hmmmmmmmmmmm Deadwood is on top of the NME Chart Show on MTV2, so i can watch Carl every night. That is pretty cool.

But anyway i' m gonna buy Waterloo to anywhere, as well as Down in Albion... though that' s true, there ain' t that chemistry there used to be with Pete and Carl now they have their own band. Such a shame, really. :cry:

This review made me want to kill myself for not going to New York.

Rolling Stone Review
A broken collarbone didn’t stop Carl Barat from performing two ridiculously raucous, sweaty, naughty sets at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom this week. With Josh Hubbard of the Paddingtons playing Barat’s guitar parts, the Pretty Things took New York through 48 hours of rocking, drinking, rocking, and um, drinking. Superfans Rob Sheffield and Elizabeth Goodman were there for every last sweat-drenched, unhinged moment. We transcribed their after-show conversation:

Rob Sheffield: Dirty Pretty Things… so dirty, so pretty.

Elizabeth Goodman: I’m dirtier and prettier by association. Everyone is.


RS: That Carl is so intense. I loved his Union Jack sling–did he sprain his arm brushing the hair out of his eyes? (The ban on shampoo on transatlantic flights obviously didn’t affect these guys at all.) I loved his mod Chelsea boots. I loved the way they solved the slow-songs problem by not playing any slow songs at all. I loved how they all huddled together and shared a bottle of Jamesons and how it was empty by the end of the set.

EG: I love how Anthony gave away the bands beer at the end of Tuesday’s show but held on to the whiskey. I love how Carl received the copy of The Complete Saki a fan handed him as if it were blessed by Saki himself, then gave the book to his guitarist’s mom afterwards. “I have about ten copiesâ€Â

That's a good video, simple but not cheap. It's good to know Anthony's the only one who showers. :roll: I'm gonna start wearing an American flag as a belt from now on, or maybe not... I'll just look like a hick.

I like the shot of the boot coming down next to the pool cue. Very nicely done mister director!

Double post. I watched that video again and it kind of pisses me off now.

It reminds me of the Libs videos, like spontaneous with no real direction but there's too much acting and stupid cheesy parts involved. Carl's such a cornflake. :milton: I think the singing to the camera thing is awkward, and the ending with all the people just shouldn't have happened.

Yeah, also they seem to be very close, all of them. Gary said they're coming back to America in October! I will definitely clear my calendar for Carl. Let's hope they get rid of the age restrictions this time. :roll:
