The Libertines are doing a hotel in Margate


#41

Went to check in and found the manager would only speak to me in iambic pentameter. It was somewhat disconcerting!


#42

When I saw them at Glastonbury, Ed Harcourt played with them.

Has Sean got a stake in this??


#43

i wish them all the best


#44

#45

The Rakes set up part-time employment agency in the city


#46

22 Grand Job was an actual song mate, it wasn’t them calling you with an offer


#47

Going to have to stop you there pal


#48

Anyone who ever liked the libertines is a tasteless hack, apologies
fucking never drink alcohol man


#49

that includes being a child since I resisted it at I think 13 or 14, so you all have literally no excuse


#50

Oh. I assumed this was a joke.


#51

‘Each room is said to be “individually designed … each with a distinctly Libertines’ style”. It is not clear what this means but it can’t be worse than what was on offer from the previous owners.’

Can’t?


#52

I liked Radiohead when i was six, y’know.


#53

libsmargate


#54

absolutely love Up The Bracket (the whole album), Don’t Look Back Into The Sun and Can’t Stand Me Now

i do remember reading a fairly long guardian article about the really fucked up circles that Pete moves in which was pretty unpleasant

i do wonder what would’ve happened if they’d kept going rather than splitting up just before 00’s indie had it’s commercially successful years (thus giving them a storyline perfect history)


#55

A recent ex-disser was pretty uncomplimentary about Pete D from personal experience as well.

Largely agree on the music - they wrote a few excellent tunes, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that he appears to be a prick of the highest order - both on drugs and when clean.


#56

yeah i remember the anecdote you’re referring to

why are so many talented people such shits?


#57

Can we fund a DiSer to go and stay there and write a review pls


#58

The same DiSser who lives in Margate!


#59

Carl sets the coach cassette player on fire.

Pete bumps into Johnny Borrell, who’s now working as a showgirl for the Great Raymundo.
