DPT's last London gig:
Ponyrock took some photos (mainly Anthony Rossy - nothing wrong with that) and also a video (Gin and Milk). The gig was good but sadness was rife. Yeah Carl undoubtfully did the right thing splitting up the band but one thing is reasoning with a cold mind, one thing is feeling with your heart. And it makes you wonder why Carl Barat seems to be only happy when it rains, like the old song (I'm talking Jesus and Mary Chain, not Garbage!). Whatever. The hall was full in the end because people were being allowed inside for 5p! I didn't see reviews in the press yet. Not many photos either. This is a band disbanding, why waste time and ink? Tonight the tour stops. Next date is tomorrow at Oxford's Carling Academy.
Another one of those things?
Peter's at the Albion Towers recording his solo album... and shooting silly videos, for the joy of the redtops that have been on a serious Doherty-deprived diet lately. I thought it was a good sign, but didn't last long. Mik being nicked and bailed did not help much either. Now there's an advert for a gig tomorrow at The Woodberry Tavern. Literally:
Peter Doherty & General Santana & Ark Of The Covenant performing at the Woodberry Taverna in Tottenham N15 this Thu Oct 16 2008
Peter Doherty & Friends at the Woodberry Taverna 618 Seven Sisters Road
Thursday will Be £10 for admission
Start 8pm Peter Doherty acoustic
General Santana & Ark of the Covenant
I have no idea whether this thing is happening or not. I don't trust the people involved (that is, General) but you never know...
