The Libertines – Up The Bracket
So I bought the NME last week and it actually turned out to be pretty good. It’s still the NME, but it’s readable now and there were some excellent interviews contained within it.
Its letters page was obviously ridiculous, and featured some type of argument about whether the Libertines, reformed, are better than the Arctic Monkeys, with the underlying implication being that whichever of the two was triumphant by consensus would in fact be the best band in the world.
Which is self-evidently true. My personal preference is for ‘t Monkehs, but here’s my favourite Libertines song anyway, for the TDOM day that’s in it.
