I know it took a bit of a critical drubbing in some quarters, but I actually liked the 2nd Dirty Pretty Things album quite a bit. The slower, more melancholic, songs on Romance At Short Notice (2008) were the ones that I enjoyed on that record and they hinted at the direction Carl Barat's career was going to take as a solo artist.
(That is, when he's not writing a memoir or leading a Libertines reunion!)
On May 2, Carl Barat will be releasing a new EP containing new music and live recordings, including Carl's recording of a previously unreleased Libertines track called "Grimaldi" and a cover of The Langley Sisters song "Sing For My Supper".
