The Libertines Vinyl, CD & tapes by The Libertines at Norman Records

Possibly the worst ever advert for doing drugs, the Libertines were once hailed as the saviours of British guitar music only to disappear in a haze of general malfunction. The main protagonist for all this is co-frontman Pete (Peter) Doherty whose an...read more »

Peter Doherty & The Puta Madres
Peter Doherty & The Puta Madres

Pete Doherty is still out here doing his thing, with another new band behind him, The Puta Madres. This self-titled pseudo-debut features all your favourite Doherty stylings, with love and loss and darkness all expressed through Pete’s cheeky-chappy doomed-romantic persona. Available via Strap Originals, in a whole bevy of formats.

The Libertines
Time For Heroes - The Best Of The Libertines

That moment when BBC's Seven Ages of Indie arrived at the Libertines after graduating through the Smiths, Oasis et al was really an eye opener. That what was basically a sloppy school band could ever be seen in the same bracket as indie legends and billion selling stadium bands seemed implausible yet it's hard to deny their influence or enduring appeal. For those hoping they might one day get around to making a fourth album, here is a best of consisting of fan favourites, key album tracks and the odd rarity.  

The Libertines
Anthems For Doomed Youth

So, The Libertines actually made a new album to accompany that big-money live reunion. Anthems For Doomed Youth is that album, approaching their much loved sound from an older, possibly wiser position. An interesting prospect considering the inherently youthful nature of the band’s earlier work… Twelve tracks, or sixteen should you choose the deluxe edition CD.

Peter Doherty & The Puta Madres
Who’s Been Having You Over / Paradise Is Under Your Nose

Recently pricked by a hedgehog, Pete Doherty has an innate ability to stay in the news. As you might have guessed he has a new record out with his new band The Puta Madres and this is the first single culled from it. Just imagine the hoards of fans queuing up for this on Record Store Day and their thought process when they realise we have hundreds of them left.

John Hassall & The April Rainers
Wheels to Idyll

John Hassall is one of the two Libertines who have kept a low profile: not for Hassall the busy drug-fuelled solo careers of Barat or Doherty. But he has now produced an album with his group The April Rainers, and what a lovely thing it is. Wheels To Idyll is imbued with the rich melody-pop sunshine of the 1960’s, and Hassall and co. get the sound just right. On VAM Records.

Peter Doherty
Hamburg Demonstrations

Erstwhile Babyshambler and Libertine Mr Peter Doherty comes back with a solo record, put together in Hamburg. Hamburg Demonstrations skims across an array of pop culture and political references (Graham Greene, the Paris attacks, Amy Winehouse), offering the listener the opportunity to witness the world from Doherty’s particular perspective. Out on BMG.

The Libertines
Up The Bracket

Read the Libertines wikipedia page and there's an entire section headlined 'Problems'. Luckily their debut Up the Bracket was made before many of these problems started as founding members Carl Barat and Pete Doherty were at the top of their cheeky-chappie-strung-out-on-heroin phase. It crystallised their 'closer than brothers' songwriting partnership and has regularly been cited as one of the best albums of the early 2000s. Then came the problems but at least we got this out of them.  

The Libertines
The Libertines

Whether you could cope with their tabloid-friendly jack the lad personas or not, there's no arguing that this bunch of London wasters created a raggle taggle sound that refreshed British guitar music. At a time when most popular 'indie bands' were as benign and manufactured as any Simon Cowell protege, the Libertines lived their music and embodied a rock and roll lifestyle that is generally frowned upon by tut tutters. The fact that security were brought in to stop the two creative leaders fighting during the recording of this second record should be enough to convince you that they meant it, maaaan.    

Babyshambles
Shotter's Nation

Shotter's Nation was the second album from never knowingly not wasted the Libertines co-frontman Pete 'Peter' Doherty under his Babyshambles moniker. It sees him collaborating with an unfathomably eclectic bunch of artists such as Kate Moss, Ian Brown and Bert Jansch and this is probably the only time you'll see those three in the same sentence. Not exactly the pinnacle of recorded music but at least he's alive I suppose.
