Juicy bit from Popbitch:
>> Hit me with your rhythm stick <<
The heavy hand of the management

Pete Doherty's band Babyshambles recently
lost its drummer when Gemma Clarke quit,
citing a breakdown in her relationship with
the management. Keeping up a steady flow
of bad behaviour has brought the band great PR
but insiders say it went too far, and the
relationship broke down, when Gemma was hit up
for drug money. With the emphasis on the "hit".

Carl Goes Solo

Post by D. Phillips » Tue Feb 22, 2005 11:37 am

BARAT HOME!
CARL BARAT is embarking on a solo career and has signed a deal, NME.COM can reveal.

Rumours have been rife that the remaining half of The Libertines’ songwriting team would soon to strike out alone.

Now, it has emerged that Barat has signed a solo contract with Vertigo, the imprint of Mercury Records that brought Razorlight and The Rapture to prominence.

Vertigo MD Greg Castell said: “Carl is one of the greatest talents in modern music. His contribution to The Libertines was fundamental to the band’s success and we’re delighted to have the opportunity of working closely with him.”

Barat will be under the A&R eye of sometime The Libertines manager Alan McGee, the founder of Creation Records. An album is expected by the end of the year.

Barat has also teasingly confirmed that his new band will contain members of The Libertines.

Pete in on-stage scuffle.
Rock singer Pete Doherty has been involved in a fight with his band's guitarist at their biggest gig to date.

Babyshambles played for 5,000 fans at London's Brixton Academy on Tuesday.

The former Libertines singer traded blows with guitarist Patrick Walden. They were separated and bundled off stage before returning to end the set.

The show was earlier held up due to audience overcrowding. On Monday Doherty faced blackmail and robbery charges in court, which he denies.

He is out on £50,000 bail and the judge agreed to extend his 2200 GMT curfew deadline by two hours so he could play the Brixton gig.
