"I Read the News Today, Oh Boy !!"

Yesterday, Sunday October 22nd was the rendition LIVE of the mythic album "Sergent Pepper Lonely Heart Club Band" at La Philharmonie de Paris, curated by Ed Harcourt featuring an unbelievable list of performers :
Gaz Coombes and Danny Goffey from Supergrass,
Steve Mason from The Beta Band,
Barrie Cadogan of Primal Scream,
Paul Duffy of The Coral
annnnnd :
Peter Doherty and Carl Barat from (should I really write it ?)

The whole album and a few more songs were played live yesterday, as The Beatles never made it (they stopped playing live earlier because of the hysteria the Fab Four ignited everywhere the went ...)

It's been a Magical time :

Songs rendition was just perfect thanks to the unbelievable casting and work Mr Harcourt did for this so beautiful event !!
The sound was just unbelievable !!!
You could hear each instrument played, from guitar to sitar to Theremin to maracas and much more !!

Here are a few pics of the event.

More to come really soon ...

Carl took part in recording the single Bridge Over Troubled Water, to support the families of the Grenfell Fire.

He didn't sing a solo line and these are the only musician credits in the article:

Tokio Myers - Piano
Pete Townshend - Acoustic Guitar
Brian May & Nile Rodgers - Electric Guitars

But here he is:

Here's the video. I'm still playing Spot-the-Carlos tho:


Libertines in Chile and Argentina.

Pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeee, don't let this place die. I've been here for almost 10 years and it used to be one of the only places (if not the only one) I could get some daily info of the band I love most in the time I live in (Can't beat The Clash, thou :p)

And, you know, after all that waiting and hoping, and thinking I will never get a chance (Uk it's far from Buenos Aires, and way too expensive for me) I did get to a Libertines concert. Twice. (Chile is not that far and expensive)

So here you have some pics, and links and things about it:

Libertines in Chile: (Took them with my phone, as impossible as that may seem to 5-years-ago me)

And now some good ones:


Then, they went to see Chile Vs Perú, but you got that in Pete's twitter.

And then they came to Buenos Aires. I didn't take pics because I ran out of batery...I don't care.

Here some beauty ones:



And then Pete stayed and did 2 solo shows...
