Edinburgh and stuff

Besides appearing on the telly, Peter also played one of the last gigs of his UK tour last night, at Edinburgh's Picture House. See report and piccies at David's blog.

"Just back from the picture house gig" said Jill on FDW "he looked great! sounded great! and it was an all round great night best night I've had in ages, loved the mix of Libs/Shambles stuff, the place was bouncing, some throw he has on him tho.........he threw a toilet roll back into the crowd full force (well at me) and I was right up by the back next to the mixing decks, couldnt believe how far he threw it..... was a pitty some TiT threw piss at him but they got a good pile of nose snot and spit back in there face from him! his stage dive was great, personally I'd have just been greedy and not given him back, he accepting the usual load of gifts that were thrown up. made me happy to see him smile and laugh tonight he really done himself proud and I hope him and the boys will return to The Old Picture house".

Plus! Brief report by Beverley Lyons and Laura Sutherland for The Daily Record:
IT WAS a new name, a new era for Peter Doherty last night as he celebrated the release of his solo album with a gig in Edinburgh.
Grace/Wastelands hit the shops on Monday and Peter was joined by an all-star line-up including album collaborator Graham Coxon, from Blur, at the Picture House.
He thrilled the crowd with What A Waster and English Rose before Libertines hit Can't Stand Me Now and Babyshambles' Albion and What Katie Did.
Fans littered the stage with gifts throughout, proving Peter hasn't lost his touch.
Tomorrow it's The Troxy guys! And I won't be there. Waaaahhhhh!!!
Oh if somebody's wondering where Carl Barat is bound next... check Venezuela.
