Dirty Pretty Things split up


Recommended Posts

Dirty Pretty Things have split up.

In an exclusive statement to NME.COM the foursome – Carl Barat, Didz Hammond, Gary Powell and Anthony Rossomando – announced the break-up of the band that formed in 2005 following the split of The Libertines.

In the statement frontman Carl Barat said that the members of the band would be pursuing new musical projects, but that these would not involve The Libertines.

"It is with some sadness we announce the farewell of the Dirty Pretty Things," the statement to NME.COM read. "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."

I liked them but I'm not particularly...bothered to be honest. Imo Carl Barat was the straight up rock n' roll influence that Pete needed to stop him from warbling on incoherently and was the perfect balance, but the DPT I always felt were just good party music.

I mean, the Libertines WILL reform sooner or later as long as Pete Doherty is alive. It's just inevitable. I don't know why they keep delaying it.
