i know that doherty gets a lot of bad press and that most on this board are not fond of him for some reason.
but forget the tabloids and enjoy the music.
up the bracket is an unbelievable debut album that all these no mark indie bands (the kooks, razorlight i'm looking at you) have been trying to replicate unsuccessfully for years.

so any fans here?
or to thiose who hate them, why?

I love their music actually, not a fan of him though.

I love them - not them, but the music. Once I get that CD on in the car it is played on an endless loop (until DH drives and gets me out of it! I am physically incapable of stopping it once I start.)

absolutely class song.
i also love death on the stairs and boys in the band.

First album was brilliant - and they were amazing live, but since then they've squandered everything, I think - the second album was a real disappointment.

Agreed though, Doherty himself is an adolescent twunt of the first order.

love that song one he's ever done

yeah i know what you mean. babyshambles are just like "the libertines lite" or something. you catch glimmers of brilliance but that's it. it all feels as though they are the NME fanboy tabloid band that everyone assumes the libertines were if they haven't taken the time to listen to the album.

having said that i absolutely love Albion by the babyshambles.

Hi ya, another fan here.
Saw them at the Forum a few years back one night when things between them were going from bad to worse, so Pete didn't turn up.

Do you like Dirty Pretty things?
Not the same, but still like them.

You can't beat listening to up the bracket really loudly with a beer in hand!
