Not really. But the Titanic analogy is stunning. And I swear he's never heard it from me...
Kidding! Interview by Sara Irvine for Noize magazine.
Amidst nearly fatal diseases, break ups and make ups, boozes, pills, thrills and bellyaches, Carl still keeps his cool, and he's once again in the NME cool list. Says the list compiler:
"49. Carl Barat [re-entry] 2008 was a rough year for the man Pete Doherty used to call Biggles, with serious illness and poor album sales conspiring to spell the end for Dirty Pretty Things. Yet Carlos retains an indelible aura of cool and his recent announcement that The Libertines have "unfinished business" bodes well for 2009".
For the record, Peter is not in the list. The horror, the horror!
Anyway, DPT's Irish tour is going ahead, although ticket sales are still poor. Enjoy Didz and Anthony playing Blur's Boys and Girls here (video by Myska).
