London, England (2004 – present)

Babyshambles are a band formed in London, England by Peter Doherty (Pete) as a side-project to (and later full time after departing) The Libertines.

The band’s first single, Babyshambles, was released in April 2004 on High Society Records. Fewer than 1,000 copies of the CD and 7” were released and both can now be found changing hands for more than £50 on internet auction sites such as eBay.

During September and October 2004 Babyshambles embarked on a UK tour culminating in two sold-out shows at the London Scala. Despite claims that the band were only touring to raise money to support Doherty’s drug habit the tour sold-out and received critical acclaim. The band’s second single Killamangiro was released November 29 2004 on Rough Trade Records and reached number 8 in the UK charts. The band embarked on another tour in December amid increasing concern about Doherty’s drug use. During a gig in Blackpool the band walked off stage as it became clear Doherty was too intoxicated to perform and a riot broke out at the London Astoria when Doherty failed to turn up for a gig.

In January 2005, Gemma Clarke quit the band, citing disagreements with the management who she considered irresponsible for failing to address Doherty’s obvious drug problem. She was replaced with Adam Ficek, Patrick Walden’s former bandmate in The White Sport. In February 2005 Doherty, along with fellow musician Alan Wass, was arrested on suspicion of assault and blackmail.

    раньше Догерти создавал вокруг себя скандалы, привлекая внимание к своей музыке, теперь - музыку, чтобы привлечь внимание к своим скандалам, все ок.

    Was kind of sad to see Pete look even more fucked up than I remember him to look like, still enjoyed the gig though

    группа вообще ни о чем, с каждым релизом все хуже и хуже, такое чувство, что питу приходится уже просто доказывать, что он не только скандалист и алкоголик, но еще и бывший музыкант.
