Oh What A Lovely Tour - Babyshambles Live (Explicit)
Released: Jul 2008
Label: Parlophone UK
This companion to the CD/DVD of the same name finds the hazily friendly Brits on a stage in Scotland in late 2007. Simple punk songs that echo the Undertones and bounce with unobtrusive ska basslines but never bother to (or need to, really) get off the couch, unless it's to greet the cops breaking down the door. "Beg, Steal or Borrow," "Side of the Road" and singer Pete Doherty's confused between-song asides are highlights. Doherty seems kinda ... uh ... sleepy and delivers his lines exactly like someone who's been kicked out of the Libertines not once but twice for substance abuse problems.
