Pete will never be 'eclipsed' and will be forever idolised by many in my opinion, therefore Adam is talking rubbish...

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.]
