"Troubled British rocker Pete Doherty has been captured on video injecting himself with heroin - just hours after claiming he was drug-free. The shocking footage, shot using a mobile phone, shows the Babyshambles frontman crouched on the floor holding a needle in his mouth. After staring into the camera, he starts 'cooking up' what is thought to be heroin and fills the syringe. The video then shows him injecting into his right tattooed arm and he slumps forward as the drugs start to kick in. A source tells British newspaper The Sun, "It's not the first time he's injected since he was supposed to have gone clean. "He may have got clean through rehab, but as soon as the temptation is put in front of him, he cannot help himself. It's so sad to see. He's been given so many chances and so many fresh starts and he just throws them all away." The clip was allegedly filmed at Doherty's home in Wiltshire, England, on Friday (02Nov07) after he returned from the MTV Europe Music Awards in Germany. At the ceremony, less than 24 hours before (01Nov07), he joked to a TV reporter he was "missing" hard drugs and has since confessed he is "in mourning" for his heroin addiction. Last week (ends02Nov07), Doherty, 28, narrowly avoided prison for drug and driving offences but was handed a two-year suspended sentence, an 18-month supervision order and a 12-month drug rehabilitation order."

The 28-year-old frontman and his bandmates were greeted by about 100 Gallic fans, many sporting Doherty's trademark trilby, for a signing session at the FNAC record store in Les Halles shopping mall in the heart of Paris.
Apparently Pete looks healthy these days and appears to have gained weight.

Troubled British rocker PETE DOHERTY is set to manage his own young soccer team for a new reality TV show. The Babyshambles frontman - who is currently undergoing drug treatment at a residential rehabilitation centre - is in talks with TV producers to document the launch and progression of soccer side Doherty FC. Doherty will manage and train a team of youngsters and prepare them for matches against similar sides. A source tells British newspaper The Sun, "Pete needs something to keep him on the straight and narrow. He loves football (soccer), so this could just be the tonic."
Another thing, my sis says she saw an advert on sky for either Delivery Single or Shotters Nation (the silly cow can't remember..) so check youtube everynow and then to see if it's up..

The Babyshambles singer who, before his well published drug addiction was an acclaimed teenage poet, hopes to become the strongest link on the Anne Robinson fronted TV show.
"People might not realise it but I am well educated and well read," explained Doherty. "I can prove to people there is more to me than just drugs."
A well informed 'source' told the Daily Express newspaper: "Kate has this romantic notion of love and finds intelligence a huge turn-on. Pete thinks going on the show will prove to her that he does have the depth and IQ that she loves so much."

Babyshambles' new album, due for release in October, will be named 'Shotter's Nation'.

The first single from the album, 'Delivery', will be released on September 17.
'Shotter's Nation' will not be released for another two months at least, but NME.COM has heard the album already.

Meanwhile his sentencing for possessing class A drugs has been held off for a month while he continues rehab.
However one of the conditions set by the west London magistrates court is the Doherty must stay with family while he tries to quit drugs.
"I can't stay with mum not while shes with dad, I'm not quite sure where I'm staying" Doherty explained "Is there any NME readers outside London who want to put me up?"

Troubled BABYSHAMBLES rocker PETE DOHERTY had a little help on his latest album - from ex-girlfriend KATE MOSS. The supermodel revealed last week (ends03Aug07) she had aspirations of becoming a lead singer in a band had her catwalk career not taken off, and she proved her talents on Doherty's much-hyped new record by penning most of the words to Babyshambles song You Talk. He reveals, "I wrote that with Kate sat in bed. I was just trying to impress her and in the end she changed a lot of the words and it found its way onto the album." The couple split in early July (07), amid reports Doherty had cheated on Moss with a mystery brunette. The band's as-yet-untitled album is due for release in October (07).
Babyshambles frontman Pete Doherty is to be sentenced in court today for a number of drugs and driving offences.
The singer pleaded guilty to possession of crack cocaine, heroin, cannabis and ketamine as well as two driving charges at a hearing last month.
He was ordered to attend a court-imposed period in rehab, which he has done, ahead of sentencing today.
Doherty was told by the judge that all options, including custodial sentencing, would be considered.
The musician was arrested on May 5th in London when he was stopped by police while driving his car.
He was recording his band's new album at the time, which his lawyer Sean Curran said had got on top of him along with his personal life.
The singer has been involved in a relationship with the supermodel Kate Moss intermittently over the last two years.
Babyshambles' new album is released in October, their first LP release since 2004's Down in Albion.

Rumour has it Pete and Carl will once again reunite for a special show.
Both Carls and Petes bands are playing on the acoustic stage and they will mett up to play a gig together on Saturday.
This comes just shortly after the great success of the last reunion at the Hackney Empire in London in which Carlos made a surprise performance .
I'm sure everyone who goes will have a spectacular time and for the rest of us...at least this one may be televised.

Pete, who has recently been making an effort to quit drugs was spotted hiding behind a bush talking to himself.
After being collected Pete slumped in a children's booster chair at the back of the car sweating heavily and mumbling "The demons are coming to get me" he also spoke about having children with girlfriend Kate Moss and how he didn't like people wearing her clothes, he then went on to say he would be bigger the Sir. Paul McCartney.
When all was looking well for Pete this is a major setback for his recovery but we hope he gets well soon.
Thanks to F**k Forever from the forum for the news.

It's official. The votes are in and Pete Doherty has been named the celebrity flatmate from hell, taking the victory in a huge landslide.
For all his rock n roll charm and misunderstood ways, the headline-courting Babyshambles frontman has been placed top of the list of flatmates that people would dread to share a flat with. According to the survey, commissioned by freeads.co.uk, Doherty took 60 per cent of the votes overall.
"We were expecting Pete to feature highly on the flatmates from hell list, but taking nearly 60 per cent of the votes was a landslide we weren't expecting," commented freeads.co.uk chief executive Duncan Horton, according to the Daily Record.
At the other end of the scale cheeky chappie radio presenter Chris Moyles was the most popular celebrity flatmate, followed by soul singer Amy Winehouse and the ever-pleasant Cameron Diaz.
Other celebs who did not fare so well in the rankings included Britney Spears, who was voted as an undesirable flatmate by more than a quarter of people questioned.
Victoria Beckham, Madonna and Simon Cowell were also among the flatmate from hell list, as well as Doherty's long-standing love interest Kate Moss.

Pete was supposedly books for a Dance DJing festival, and he didn't turn up, resulting in more negative press..
However he has since said he was never booked and the organisers were using his name to sell tickets! (bastards..!) Anyway they havent issued a public apology so he may sue them (he has the advantage of knowing a court room back to front ;) )
In other news... Pete and Kate are soaking up the sun in Ibiza – in their tight skinny jeans. The hot couple looked almost like normal holidaymakers while relaxing on the island’s Es Cavallet beach. They kissed, cuddled, drunk sangria and even ATE paella at a beach restaurant earlier this week. The Babyshambles frontman – celebrating finishing recording his band’s second album – took his top off to catch some rays while Kate wore a bikini top. But the couple refused to pull themselves out of their sweaty tight denim, despite the baking heat.
Here are some pics:

British rocker Pete Doherty has finished recording his first solo album and hopes to release it later this year (07). The 28-year-old star, who is about to enter the studio to tape a second disc with his band Babyshambles, hopes his record label will also allow him to release his solo debut - untouched. He says, "Well to be honest, I think it's pretty much done. It's just now trying to convince the record company that everything doesn't need to be highly polished." However a record company source tells NME.com, "We're really keen to release Pete's acoustic record at some point in the future, but not until after the next Babyshambles album, that will come out first."

Pete Doherty has got his own back on a photographer trying to take snaps of him with lover Kate Moss by throwing a bucket of cold water over him.The Babyshambles front man attacked the paparazzo with a bucket of water at Kate's home in St John's Wood, just hours after being praised for his efforts to cut drugs out of his life.Pete launched the bucket over photographer Oliver Polter in a fit of rage as Kate returned home, narrowly missing the supermodel with the icy cold water.After attending a review of his drug treatment order earlier in the day, this display of anger could be seen as a step back for Pete, although he was praised by the district judge in court.DJ Jane McIvor said: "There's no obligation for you to turn up to the reviews. The fact you've turned up shows co-operation … and there is no risk of you breaching this order."And outside the court, Pete seemed calm enough while he signed autographs for fans and strummed his guitar. However, later that day, it seems he thought enough is enough.

Pete Doherty and Carl Barat played 13 songs at the second of Doherty's An Evening With Pete Doherty gigs at the Hackney Empire. During the second half of the show Doherty teased the audience by saying: "You've been waiting for this moment. Ladies and gentlemen Mr Carlos Barat...only joking! What do you expect for 25 quid?"Then Barat bounded on stage, wearing a Dior Homme suit and a trilby. The duo played 13 Libertines classics, including 'What Katie Did' and 'Time For Heroes'. They whispered and hugged each other in between songs, while during their cover of Mama Cass With The Mamas & The Papas' 'Dream A Little Dream', Barat performed a little tap dancing routine. The duo played song 'Albion', with Barat joining in on vocals. The song was originally considered for The Libertines but was included on Babyshambles 2005 album 'Down In Albion'.Returning for a quick encore, the pair played 'The Delaney', left the stage and then re-emerged triumphantly holding each others hands in the air.However the reunion continued outside the back of the venue.After the show fans shot round to the venue's dressing room windows and managed to convince the pair to reappear.Appropriately enough Doherty and Barat performed an impromptu version of 'Can't Stand Me Now' for the mass of fans, while Doherty's girlfriend Kate Moss watched on.Prior to Barat taking to the stage for the reunion, Doherty played a number of songs solo and with guest Alan Wass and Bert Jansch including 'Killamangiro' and 'Cyclops'.
The reunited Libertines played:
'What A Waster'
'Death On The Stairs'
'The Good Old Days'
'What Katie Did'
'Seven Deadly Sins'
'Tell The King'
'Don't Look Back Into The Sun'
'Dream A Little Dream Of Me'
'Time For Heroes'
Thursday, April 12, 2007
The pair were spotted recently,(see photo) fueling more rumours about a libs reunion. Barat has recently said "We're doing different things but I'd be happy to work with Pete again. Our relationship hasn't really faded away."
Only time will tell I suppose!

The acts have been marshalled by Babyshambles bassist Drew McConnell to appear on a special CD to counter an attempt by far-right groups to sneak their messages across.
Following a similar ploy in the US, individuals with links to hate groups like Combat 18 are assembling a CD of white power bands for a compilation entitled 'Project Schoolyard'.
The racists plan to hand out free CDs to young children outside schools.
Deciding he couldn't tolerate this assault on young minds, McConnell has teamed-up with Trangressive Records singer Lisa Moorish and the Love Music Hate Racism campaign to release their own CD this summer."

According to one British newspaper, the couple met at the NME awards earlier this month.
And despite the five-year age gap the couple have been inseparable ever since.
A friend of Rupert's said: "He and Katie have been seeing each other for a few weeks and are both really keen. They share a love of music so as soon as they met they clicked. It's early days but they are very happy together."
Katie, originally from Wales, dated Babyshambles front-man Doherty for nearly a year after meeting him at a gig in East London however, within weeks Katie had become caught up in Pete's drug abuse.
She eventually kicked drugs and is now working towards her own successful music career fronting rock band Bonnie And Clyde.
From Pete to Ron Weasley....Who saw that coming?

Despite vowing to kick his habit Pete has blatantly flaunted his substance abuse.
In an interview with the New York Daily News newspaper, Pete said: "I always stumble back on it sooner or later, even if it's for half an hour a day." Pete even took a drag out a crack pipe during the interview.
Please Pete...Get better soon!!!!

When asked by The Daily Star (U.K.) about his love for women's fashion items, Doherty reportedly said: “Oh year I love them - especially the eyeliner. It’s a laugh as it can make the right changes to your features.

Babyshambles (and the likes of Damon Albarn, Brian Eno, Annie Lennox, Kaiser Chiefs and Ian Brown) are amongst a host of folk who have signed up to an anti-nuclear campaign with CND, to oppose government plans to upgrade the UK's Trident nuclear missiles. The campaign states that the weapons are dangerous and not needed to defend the country. Pete and Kate celebrated his 28th Birthday in style this week, with a romantic champagne picnic near her Cotswolds home. Later, they went for a drive in Kate's MG sports car before flying back to London, rather poshly, by helicopter. Here are some pics of them in the Cotswolds this week and also posing with the helicopter.

Ruth here I know i'm under another name but this is because I'm an idiot and i will be using this profile from now on.
Good update on Babyshambles in the NME this week.
definatly worth a read theres no interview with Pete a such but there are a few qoutes from the drummer Adam Ficek.
This album is set to have a late 60s garage feel to it and its not to have the same witty quality to it as "Down on albion"
"Musically we're more stable now then we've ever been" Ficek declared.
Apparently the band are stronger now as a unit then they have ever been.

Please join and post as much as possible. There are some other forums about the Shambles, but they're poorly modded, and very unreliable, so this could take off and be very handy if everyone makes a bit of effort. I'll make the other contributors here moderators/admins on it if they wish (They'll have to join up and indicate to me their usernames first though).
I hope everyone here is happy with this addition, please comment to let us know what you think.

So ya Pete and Carl are my hero's And i'm a fanatic!
so alot of ye may have heard this but because it hasnt been posted...
Babyshambles have been announced to play at this years oxegen fesitval up the counrty (Ireland) the dates are the 8th and 9th of July and if the last few shambles gigs are anything to go by this perfomance is not to be missed the chances are it will be played on Mtv 2 and if we're lucky they may have an interview as well!
Hope this comes in handy,
No no, Pete and Carl arn't getting back together (as far as I'm aware), but their 70 year old drummer from the beginning plans to release some tracks they recorded all those years ago (around 7 now!).
Paul Dufour (aka Mr Razzcocks - the original drummer with The Libertines) did a 'talk' at Leicester's De Montfort University on 1st March, one of a series of cultural events being held by the Uni, which are open to the public. Paul talked about his experience from the early days of the band and also played some of those much talked about early recordings/video, which are in his possession. As reported in NME some months back, he confirmed that it was still his intention to get these early works publicly released but was waiting for word from Mercury Records; apparently there is a proposed release date for Breck Road Lover of 1st May and then an album of around 20 songs released on 1st June, under the name of The Libertines. There was even talk of the band getting together to do some promotion for these releases, but in reality this is surely not really a possibility (would be nice though!).
Here's a picture of Pete and Kate leaving NME Awards on Thursday night I just stumbled upon...The couple were asked to leave the ceremony by security after a series of incidents at the ceremony held at Hammersmith Palais. According to a source who spoke to NME.COM on the condition of remaining anonymous, the couple got into trouble after becoming too amorous for the security personel's liking. The source said the loved-up pair were first caught trying to get into the venue's toilets together and were later caught in an alleyway at the back of the building together. The anonymous source said: "Pete and Kate were trying to get into the premises' toilets but they were removed by the bouncers and told to go back to their table. " Later they were both caught in a dark alleyway at the back of the building. So we got their own security guards to put them in a car and take them home." He added there had also been an earlier incident when Doherty was stopped from taking a spoon from his table (For the innocents out there, can be used for heating up drugs such as heroin). According to the source, the couple were removed from the premises at 8.30pm, before Moss could present Primal Scream with their Godlike Genius award as scheduled.

I'm one of the new contributers, thought i'd introduce myself. Basically my names James, i'm doing A Levels in Brighton at the moment, and hope to go to university in Liverpool. I'm a huge Pete fan, Love all the songs, although my favourites have to be Up The Bracket, Don't Look Back Into The Sun, Fuck Forever, and 8 Dead Boys. Although I must admit I love them all! I've read Last of the Rock Romantics, The Shambolic Libertine, and My Prodigal Son (all strongly recomended!).
Anyway back to what you're here for!
Anthony confirmed recently that DPT will be recording their second album this summer, with the intention of an antumn release. Fifteen or so songs have been written and the band will be leaning towards something totally different to the sound of Waterloo to Anywhere.
Personally I can't wait, some Waterloo to Anywhere tunes were great (Deadwood was true Libertine standard in my opinion).
Thanks for reading my first (of hopefully many) ramblings!
This weeks issue of NME praises Pete for his good behaviour of late, and for being just a mere eight minutes late for a show in Brixton Academy. The show went down very well and plenty of new material was thrown in the set too. Read the article for yourself here http://www.nme.com/reviews/babyshambles/8257
It's looking good for fans of Pete at the minute, let's hope he can continue this show of punctuality into the summer when BabyShambles are appearing at Oxegen.
[To anyone who cares, I'm the new contributor, Mark, and I bumped into Dan at the Shambles gig last September! Cheers for adding me too Dan.]
