On Music: The Libertines

The garage rockers re-form and hit the road again, with a new album out

With a musical style reminiscent of The Clash with a bit of The Smiths mixed in, The Libertines rode the fuzzy wave of post-punk revival to become household names, thanks in part to puckish co-frontman Pete Doherty’s rock n’ roll lifestyle. His antics increasingly took a toll on him, leading to their dissolution in 2004.

With Doherty out of rehab however, they are now back with a new album, Anthems for Doomed Youth, older, wiser, but not much quieter. Fellow indie-rockers Reverend and the Makers open.
