Former Oasis guitarist Paul 'Bonehead' Arthurs, ex-Libertine Carl Barat, Goldie Lookin Chain's Maggot and former Creation records chief Alan McGee appear in a new comedy show that debuts online this week (beginning May 4). The four-some appear in the new episode of 'Svengali', the online show written by Dean Cavanagh and also featuring 'Shameless' actor Jonathan Owen. See the next issue of NME, out on Wednesday (May 6), for an interview with Barat about his new role and an update on his solo plans.
Episode 3 of Svengali is up on youtube. The preview says: "It's an improvised twelve minute special in which Dixie gatecrashes a live radio show at The Foundry.

Actually The Mighty Carlos is as expressive as a turnip. To the mandatory question "When are the Libertines coming back?" he replies "It's a bit more complicated than you think". Then he proceeds to a fake pee. Anyway, if you haven't seen it yet, enjoy!
