Having been part of both the Libertines and the Dirty Perry Things in the last decade, and seen sights that would no doubt make many people’s eyespop out of their sockets, Carl Barât is now striking out as a solo artist, and writer.
He will release his eponymous debut solo album on 4th October via his own imprint Arcady Records (issued through PIAS). The first single ‘Run With The Boys’ will be released the same day.
I’m enjoying this video, which seems like a film that oughta have Michael Caine in it, and feels like it should have been scripted by Martin Amis. That’s meant as a compliment, by the way.

Not only that but he has written his first book ‘Threepenny Memoir’ published by Harper Collins on 30th September, which details his time in The Libertines.
Good to have him back.
