2004 was an unusual year for British music. The most promising home grown band to emerge in a very long time, The Libertines, were cracking up under the global spotlight, and a certain Mr Doherty's drug problems eventually caused a complete, disappointing demise. However, the aforementioned Doherty's songwriting partner, Carl Barat, along with Libertines' drummer, Gary Powell, swiftly moved on to pastures new, with the formation of the Dirty Pretty Things. The two ex-Libertines, were joined by Anthony Rossomando, who also had experience with the now dead group - he had filled in as a guitarist when Doherty was incapable of performing (guess why). The fourth ... Read the complete review

In musical history, when a band splits up, the follow up acts usually divide the original actís fans. Many fans of The Clash have never warmed to Big Audio Dynamite, and Iím not sure if anyone full stop ever warmed to Wings, but former Libertine Carl Barat was faced with a somewhat unique challenge that also contained itís share of blessings. Despite being the main songwriting force musically behind the depressingly short lived Libertines, Mr. Barat was always a tad overshadowed by his co-songwriter, a chap whose name I would really love to get through this review without saying the name of, but I know I will have to eventually. So while Barat had the legacy of perhaps .. Read the complete review

1. Deadwood ***** Lovely raw, melody soaked, fuzz guitar driven tune. You can really tell Carl was from The Libertines he just can't shake off that anarchic dizzylingly energetic sound of his old band, which is no bad thing. Half of the lyrics could be seen as about Pete but I spose it's up to the listener to interpret.... 2. Doctors and Dealers **** Distinctly average, for the album very much the same sound as the first track. All the songs are catchy though I can't deny that and this is what makes the album great. 3. Bang Bang You're Dead ***** Lead single off the album. This song is really brilliant. The guitar riff is fantastic ... Read the complete review

Waterloo to anywhere was the first album by the band dirty pretty things. The band consisted of the former singing in the libertines carl barat and as I had already been a big fan of the libertines I was quite aware when this album was coming out and bought it not long after. The first song dead wood kicks the album off nicely, it has a really good guitar tune going throughout the song which really helps keep the pace of the song. In fact most of the bands songs are very fast and quite up beat with fast lyrics and nice little guitar solos. The third song in to the album is probably the most well known by most people and if you aren't a really ... Read the complete review

This is the debut album from the english indie rock group 'Dirty Pretty Things'. This band formed from the ashes of The libertines, no doubt you have heard of. Doherty went on to form Babyshambles while Carl Barat, the lead singer of dirty pretty things decided to form his own band too. With great anticipation awaiting from The libertines massive fan base, they pulled this album out and surprised many with their ability to write quirky, british, fast paced, catchy, libertines-esque music. Theres a good question, where would Dirty Pretty Things be without The libertines? I Wonder indeed. From the first moments of the album, you sense an ... Read the complete review
