The Libertines Reuniting ‘To Pay Off Smack Debts’, Probably
SYPHILITIC grot-rockers, The Libertines, could well be making a comeback, which is great news for all those awful humans who live in a permanent state of mildew and have brown teeth and own nothing but four tattoos and a book of tedious soul-searching poetry.
How do we know about this comeback?
Well, Arch Bozo Carl Barât has pretty much said so. Rumours kicked off after suet-faced lightbulb-headed Pete Doherty gave an interview, where he said that he had been approached with an offer to reunite the band for a live show.
Then, with all the subtlety of someone sneaking a turd into your tear duct, the official Libertines Facebook page posted a picture of Hyde Park.
Hyde Park, after dark, has enough smackheads piddling around it without The Libertines showing up.
Barât during a DJ set, said the chances of the band reuniting “very much a possibility” and, when pushed for a date on which any live show may take place, added: “keep the 5th July free.”
You have to assume that the 5th July isn’t the date we should all look forward to because there’ll be an inquest into the death of Mark Blanco who some say was murdered at one of Pete Doherty’s parties.
Either way, fans of turgid pub-punk, summon up the strength to clap your scabby hands together because it looks like your Cider King is coming back.
Not for the money, you understand. He’s an artist.
