9780316732345: The Libertines Bound Together: The Definitive Story of Peter Doherty and Carl Barat and How They Changed British Music

In the short time they existed, the indie rock band The Libertines kick-started a music Renaissance. Their grungy rock sound and such stunts as giving away albums for free erased the barrier with fans and inspired thousands. Yet for all their musical acumen, the band made the most headlines for their apparent live fast, die young” lifestyle and for lead man Pete Doherty’s drug addictions and ongoing relationship with fashion model Kate Moss. This insightful new look at The Libertines goes behind the headlines to document the band’s true history, tracing its extraordinary highs and lows through the breakup and fallout between Doherty and the rest of the group. Lushly illustrated with rare photos, this is the authentic story of the band that defined a generation.

About the Author:

Anthony Thornton is journalist who had close ties to The Libertines throughout the band's career. Roger Sargent is a celebrated photographer who produced the photographs and artwork for The Libertines' second album.

Review:

"Dedicated and visionary, Roger Sargent was the perfect mirror, truthful without doubt, perceptive without ego."  Carl Barât, member, The Libertines

"Anthony Thornton is a better writer than Lester Bangs."  Peter Doherty, member, The Libertines

"An intelligent and pacy exploration of a musical phenomenon."  The Independent

"Writer Thornton and photographer Sargent really were on the spot (be it the van, the pub, the East End squat, or the dressing room) while most of the squalid Libertines saga went down, capturing the queasy zigzags of the bands career."  The Sunday Times

"The highlights of the book are Sargent’s sweaty photos of the band behaving badly. They hustle the reader right to the front of the stage."  Nylon
