Dirty Pretty Things

It is with some sadness we announce the farewell of the Dirty Pretty Things. It's been a glorious three years which we all would gladly live out again, but it is time for us to try new things. (not The Libertines). We are reluctant to give up touring but will give the last waltz everything. We have and are determined to go out as we came in, after which we all have other ventures to be getting on with and splendid future plans. Heartfelt thanks to all who made it what it was, much love and we'll see you on the road.
This announcement came just in time for the kick-off of a month long European tour (which I assume they are still going on). Dates below...

Great band, actually, although they were never going to equal the Libertines. Maybe they are quitting because they are tired of playing venues like the University of Essex Student Union?

I spent 5 years as a prisoner locked in a cage. I also can't bring my arms up higher than my chest. What have you done for america you hipster dipshit?

Well, chalk up another one to the current economic crisis.

If a weak rip-off of the Libertines can't survive this mess, god help us all.

pete doherty: please die.

NO! NO NO NO!

this makes me so sad.

Posted by Hanan | October 1, 2008 2:45 PM

2:43, the word you were trying to spell there is "lose," not "loose."

Hey Anon 2:43 - Please go play in traffic

"John McCain reads brooklyn vegan? Wow. Has anyone spotted him at shows?"

He is more into comedy, I heard he really like that funny Palin chick...

DPT's sophomore album was awful... These clowns just need to resolve their petty differences and reform The Libertines already.

Bart, I'd appreciate you not making fun of my accent.

I read Carl Barat joined Pete Doherty on stage a few weeks ago in England, maybe they are working something there... with a new name and sound that won't be the libertines :/

RIP

I'll believe the Libs are back together when i see it - but as far as I can tell, a Smiths reunion is jsut as likely.
