Good Lord, what's Graham doing colaborating with a waster like Doherty? He's far more talented than Doherty will ever be. Probably a controversial opinion, but there you go.

^It's Graham's decision, I think Doherty is waste of space but you can't force your views onto anyone.

i actually like pete as a person a lot. he is very funny, warm and charming. he has rough press and not surprisingly so..
he is also very impressionable, quite vulnerable, rather too trusting and needlessly gets himself into some difficulties- basically and unfortunately for him, he is a scumbag magnet. i would not have entertained the idea of playing on his record if i had not heard such alot of promise when listening to the demos.
i really do think its easy to think pete is a waster...i also have been more than a little angry with him at times for pissing his talent up the wall on too many occasions...but i think when he sees thru the murk at what opputunities are there for him he can really come up with the goods... well i think he did with these songs anyway. some songs here touched me quite deep to be honest...and lyrically i think hes bang on with this record...

Can you tell us anymore about the sound of the record, Tweedo? I'm not really into his bands but i do like acoustic stuff he's done. Suits him more i think, very good.

On the Doherty note I like some of the libertines stuff, but wouldn't go out of my way to look further for their stuff. However this new record might be an exception :wink:

Maybe his problem is that there's not enough people like tweedo around him...
I'm an albarnaholic, and I don't wanna solve my problem.

Well as long as you're doing something you enjoy, I don't actually mind that he's a bit of a junkie, I just don't like his music, when I say waster I mean he's wasting his talent. Maybe this solo stuff will be good and hopefully you'll be playing new stuff too

it's good to have people around, but his addiction, he can only sort himself, either you make it in the darkest moments of your life or you don't, no one can help you with that

I've been a (fustrated) fan, for over three years.

I recall once, he was nicked THREE times in one day. :roll:

BUT, I kept hope, because he writes some lovely stuff.


He wrote this when he was 16..

I knew she wasn't English cos she spoke it far too well,
The grammar was goodly and the verbs as it should be, and the slang was bang on the bell.

So as the language barrier clanged and banged I couldn't hear, or see
England, London and Bo, crumble into the sea

You know him, ask him yourself :lol:

I know he won a school poetry contest for the poem, and got sent to Moscow as part of some poetry exchange thingy.
