Up The Bracket by The Libertines

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.

Looking at photo's of the Libertines you really wish they'd spruce themselves up a bit. Get some smart clothes like those nice Interpol boys. I really didn't expect to like this after all the NME hype but I like it way more than anything else they've gone on about recently. Its jaunty guitar pop with severe nods in the direction of the Strokes but also reminds us of The Housemartins and The Jam. Its very poppy at times and some of the songs have melodies that you might hum on the bus the next day. Its also quite funny in a wierd kind of way. Up The Bracket made me laugh out loud once or twice.
