The Libertines return...
The Libertines returned to play Later with Jools Holland last night. The full show airs on Friday night and will feature a few more tunes from the Libertines new album ‘Anthems For Doomed Youth’ which was released last week.
If you haven’t already its really worth a listen, recorded in Thailand the album sees the return of one of the UK’s most unpredictable and raucous bands, haunted by years of drug addiction and various other issues, the new record has a real coming of age feel to it with Carl & Peter being honest with their past and seemingly being happy to move on with the next chapter in their career as a band.
John and Gary are solid as ever with some great bass lines and nice groves. John has used Ashdown since 2002 and continues to this day with his ABM-900 rig with 2 x ABM-810’s.
