Babyshambles – Shotter’s Nation

Spare the rod, spoil the child. That’s what they say. An inch of tough love can go a mile if it’s indeed coming from a place of love. It seems producer Stephen Street got ahold of Pete Doherty and shook the shit out of him, and the result is a decent album from one of rock’s most poetic and broken performers.

This summer’s NMEs were rife with reports of battles between Doherty and Street. Both parties gave their stories with Street telling the British music tabloid that he had to tell Doherty to “sort himself out” or he couldn’t work with him. Doherty, for his part, said the sessions were grueling and not at all how his band was used to working, which one can assume meant there weren’t piles of coke and leggy models around to distract the band and befuddle the producer.

“Sometimes I had to sit down with Pete and have really good heart-to-hearts with him to get through all of [the distractions] and connect with the real musician and artist that’s underneath,” Street told the NME in August. “I wanted to prove to those people that he can make a decent record.”

Mick Jones, you listening?

Loftus vs. Anderson, Schwartzman

Over at Detour, Johnny Loftus talks to the Darjeeling Limited posse about the Kinks and the logistics of smashing shit on stage in Grand Rapids:

When we met with Wes Anderson, Jason Schwartzman and Waris Ahluwalia, the trio were as eager to talk about their new film, The Darjeeling Limited, as they were to discuss Detroit, jumping through drum kits and The View.

Looks like they all gobbled up some Ludes before the interview. That must be one comfy-ass couch, yo.
