Pete Doherty Confirms Power of Lowering People’s Expectations


British artist Pete Doherty is officially the Hero of the Year, 2007.

If the end-all-of-everything are the NME awards.

Now, I like Pete Doherty. A lot. As anyone who knows me can probably imagine, I like pretty much anyone who’s thin, has black hair, smokes a lot, and plays music. I loved his old band; I love his new band.

But even I’m not sure about this one.

For those of you who aren’t much into Brit-pop, Pete Doherty is a pro-musician / on-again-off-again junkie / Kate Moss’s on-again-off-again significant other… He was one of the two dubious geniuses behind the Brit-punk band The Libertines before his descent into total junkiedom and exile by every one except the police and the tabloids.

Hero of the Year?

In related news, Carl Barat is ‘very confused’ by Pete Doherty’s recent win, and had this to say when asked about the possibility of a new project with Pete:

“Yeah, actually. He said we should write a musical, which I really want to do. It’s just a matter of timing and sorting it out.”

He goes on to say that it would be in the vein of The Threepenny Opera, except based more on what they know.

I’m pretty excited; I know that I’ve been desperately in need of a lame non-existent project to get pumped about, and this one is perfect!

For a taste of the magic of The Libertines, and to jump on the bandwagon before it gets any later, check out this VIDEO… and for some very ‘special’ pictures of Kate Moss to get inside the psyche of Pete click HERE…… and HERE.
