We haven’t seen Pete Doherty Stateside since he played for the late and very very great Libertines. His new (ha, new, six years into their career) band Babyshambles. The Libertines were the grogeny of not Blur or Oasis but the faces:  an old time, pub rock, gottle of gear Limey rock and roll band. All booze and drugs and birds and birds.

Babyshambles are even more English -now you’re look at Doherty, on an album like Down In Albion, as a Ray davies- Damon Alburn sort of cruel brittania instigator. A great album and still no Doherty. Why? Becuse he kept on getting arrested for drugs. I believe that Doherty is the only rock star who has smoked crack during a Rolling Stone interview.

The follow up to Albion, Shotter’s Nation in 2007 was significantly less tremendous but it didn’t matter because STILL NO PETE.

So now comes word Babyshambles will be introducing new songs at Proud -a London club- 11pm tonight but what do we care? Why? Because apparently the US Goverment is scared Pete is gonna destroy the Union…
