The Ficek knows better

Interview at BBC6:

18 May 2009 - Babyshambles drummer Adam Ficek believes it is only a "matter of time" before The Libertines reform. The sticksman was speaking after three members of Pete Doherty and Carl Barat's previous guise played a one-off London show at the weekend for the late Johnny Sedassy, who used to put on their gigs when they first started out.
"I'm sure they'll get together at some point," he said. "I think they should make people wait and make people really want them."
The Libertines were disbanded by Barat in December 2004 after he failed to heal a rift with Doherty which had been going on for six months. The Babyshambles singer had been in and out of rehab and was eventually replaced by Anthony Rossomando in the summer of that year. Following their split Barat went on to form Dirty Pretty Things, who split in October 2008, and Doherty formed his own band Babyshambles.
"Obviously there is a lot of history between them both but I don’t really get involved with personal relationships and take sides," Ficek said."I just let them get on with it. They put on a great show at the Rhythm Factory so who knows."
The drummer also confirmed that Babyshambles are working on their third record."We're in the studio, in and out in between Pete's solo shows and festival dates," he said. "We're just getting together new songs for the next album."

I agree with Laura...
I want them back, properly.
I can see why Adam and the rest of Babyshambles would be uncomfortable though, they're being left high and dry a bit if The Libs reform for good.

Mik is the only one without a side project, but it's different suddenly being on your own at the bottom of the ladder when you were in a successful band like Babyshambles a few months before.
