Jamie Fullerton blogs on Peter's new videos

From NME blogs:

Long before Little Boots started filling YouTube with bedroom melodies, a certain Mr. Peter Doherty was regularly hurling up home vids of his bizarre existence for all to see, comment on and rate.
Blair Witch-shaky, cobbled together by quick afternoon Mac edits in tru 'Shamblin' ramshackle style, they offered an intriguing insight into Pete's Lord-of-the-manor life in his Wiltshire pile.
Most were sketchy beginnings of new acoustic songs accompanied by images of his army of kittens, various model types lounging around his bedroom quarters in states of advance undress and (my favourite) an amateur sleuth drama starring Pete and two foreign models on a quest to recover a chicken-shaped glass bong.
Sadly, Pete recently dragged them all into the desktop trash bin, leaving his
YouTube account as barren the crowd at Keane's T In The Park headline slot.
But yesterday (August 6) and today (7) Pete rebooted, posting up nine new efforts. Kittens chasing lamp-shades, a topless Pete strumming away on the battered acoustic, zooming in on scrawled-on diary entries – we're getting a looksy through Pete's key hole again.
Aside from old Libs song 'What Katy Did' all feature versions of new efforts – seemingly titled 'Raise The Kaboose', 'Cheap Shot' and 'Stranger In My Own Skin'. We're hardly dealing with a 'Freewheeling Bob Dylan'-matching collection of ditties yet, but as newly-birthed sketches of new Pete material, they're worth a listen.
Jamie also posted this message to FDW: "Hi all, please spare me the NME cynicism for a second - heads up for a new interview coming in the mag soon, just spoke to Peter on the phone from Belgium, interview going in V Festival preview issue with new pics we're hopefully nailing this weekend - he sounded in tip top form, easily one of my favourite Peter interviews, keep an eye out for it later this month. Cheers. JF.x"
