Rhythm Factory night 3 and NME Awards



Fantastic, fantastic night. Peter’s third gig at the Rhythm Factory was hailed as the best of the three, and once again he had everyone besotted with awe. He started quite late but played for two hours, a mix of Libertines and Babyshambles songs with some surprise as well. As much as I like Babyshambles… sorry, Mikster, Drusillo and Adamski, I love you all, but Peter alone (and I would say, unleashed) is a different story. And I’m very sorry to say so, but if things go on like this I’m afraid eventually Peter will be the only heir of the Libertines saga, and the only king in the Libertines kingdom, if there is one. There will be time to discuss this, of course…

Setlist: Last post on the bugle, Pipey Mcgraw, The ha ha wall, Baddies boogie, Vertigo, Up the bracket, What a waster, Albion, Merry go round, Dilly boys, Pipe down, My darling Clementine, The Delaney, Death on the stairs, For lovers, Hooray for the 21st century, The man who would be king, There she goes, Fuck forever.

While Peter was busy playing at the RF, his ex-bandmate Carl Barat was busy… guess what, partying. The mighty Carlos was seen with his usual tail of friends and hangerons at the NME awards ceremony, and then at the NME awards bash and then at the NME awards afterparty and then at the after-afterparty, and then at the after-after-afterparty and then at the post after-after-after-after-afterparty, which I believe is still on course. He didn’t boo at Peter winning as Hero of The Year but gave an award to McGee’s protégées Glasvegas. I think everybody saw his disasters on the telly last night so I won’t dwell on them any further. You still rock Carlos, no matter what.

>>Peter will be the only heir of the Libertines saga

Erm, because he's the one who keeps on singing Libertines songs?

No, it's not that. If you like we'll discuss about it soon. I was just waiting for org.uk to come back to ask everybody's opinion on the shambles and dpt and Peter and Carl but if it doesn't come back we could do it on French Dog Blues.

I'd do it on FDB, though the result could be somewhat prejudiced...
