Thought Mr Doherty was on his last legs but just picked up the new Babyshambles album and it´s great. I know there´s a fine line between tortured artist and tool, but I like him. Not to everybody´s taste I know but this is my favourite track off the album so far ( give it a couple of minutes until it really kicks in;
Saw them live a couple of years ago in a small venue in Vienna and had a good, shambolic, drunken night ( much like the band). Doherty was mumbling, stumbling, philosophising and playing some great music. His final words at the end of the gig were a hearty `Heil Hitler` complete with salute. Everybody laughed ( luckily he´s got a lot of friends here).
