Babyshambles

Did anybody catch Babyshambles playing the Carling Festival on BBC3 earlier?
It looked absolutely bloomin brilliant!
As much as Pete Doherty is a drug addict and not a good role model for the kids, I rate him as one of the best songwriters of the past few decades. He not only writes excellent songs but is also a pretty damn good poet.
Love him or loath him, that gig rocked!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kilimangiro is on now!!!!!

#2

i'm not too into indie anymore but i have got to admit, he has some talent
#3
I think Pete Doherty is a very talented person, shame to say the least about the obvious!

But, what would his writing be like if he was totally lucid? Better or lacking?

To be honest, I can't keep up with whether he is clean or not and to be honest, I really don't care. I rate him on his talent, not his lifestyle!

That's the point which has been made about a hell of a lot of stars in the music business.
Jimi Hendrix?
Jim Morrison?
Kurt Cobain?
Janis Joplin?

i always found that, like winehouse... ha.... his performances would change depending on everything...

I prefer libertines stuff, but out of dirty pretty things and babyshambles... babyshambles win! :)

I know a lot of people who share the same opinion as yourself, including a lot of my mates. When I've challenged them as to whether they have actually sat down and properly listened to some of their stuff, their answer has been no! Suffice to say, when they have sat down and listened properly, blanking away the media facade, their opinion often changes.

Bet they'll love it!
My views of Kasabian are a little blinkered though after they brought out their song "Club Foot". I took offence cos I was born with a club foot lol

I have tried to be honest, Libertines were ok...not really my style, I did like 1 Babyshambles song, but it wasnt great...not really my style of music so could be a factor...but generally I can listen to anything...

Ignoring the music the guy is a moron plain and simple

I know they will love it, they have seen them in the past, she is a die hard fan of theirs. They can do no wrong.....club foot or no club foot!!!!

tbh imo all the baggage which goes along with Pete Doherty is just too off-putting, same with Amy Winehouse - again IMO.

Characters like PD or WH just crave the attention bestowed upon them, especially when they're in a bad state/looking for pity selling their image. Besides that I haven't recognised much decent PD material yet - maybe things will change in that respect.
