Babyshambles news and a close encounter with Pete


Babyshambles are set to release a new live CD and DVD package on June 2, NME.COM can exclusively reveal.The package, entitled 'Oh What A Lovely Tour', documents the last leg of the band's Winter 2007 arena tour - the gig in question took place at the Glasgow SECC on December 1 last year.The CD/DVD set features the full 20-song set from the band, with the DVD including music videos for 'The Blinding', 'Devlivery', 'You Talk' and 'Love You But You're Green'.The DVD was directed by Giorgio Testi, who has previously made music videos for the likes of The Good, The Bad & The Queen. It festures live footage of the band shot in saturated colours inspired by early Sex Pistols footage as well as old black and white footage of The Beatles. "I've seen it about 10 times already, it's wicked," Babyshambles bassist Drew McConnell told NME.COM. "It's great to have a document of it, to show the grandkids I wasn't always boring. And that I wasn't always a head in a jar."For full details of the release, including an exclusive Babyshambles interview, see the new issue of NME, out tomorrow (April 9).

In the meantime, Peter's parisian sojourn is temporarily over, but our friend Frenchpaulo managed to spend some time and a cigarette with him before his departure, and this is what he got:
  • Peter is collaborating with a French chanteuse named Soko
  • the chick in question will support him (or viceversa) at a solo gig Peter is playing in London on 10 April (Thursday) at a secret location (we'll find it out, don't worry)
  • the "musical" is on the way and Peter and Carl have been having fun making up the names of the main characters: one of them is named "Tony Tocock", a mixture of Tony Hancock and Jean Cocteau
  • while in Paris, staying at the legendary Libertines-famed "France Albion Hotel", Peter shot another crime movie starring himself and his muse (who strangles him and stomps all over his dead body this time!). To be seen at his usual youtube channel.
