Catching Up With The Libertines

Page Six has a sad preview of Rolling Stone’s feature on Pete Doherty, who kicked off a drug den Q&A with journalist Mark Binelli by snorting some heroin.

MARK BINELLI: Over the next three hours, Doherty will also smoke crack, shoot heroin and take an ecstasy pill. He does all of this casually, and openly, except for the shooting up, which he performs near the kitchenette, with his back to us. He offers me heroin and ecstasy but not crack. I decline. The more drugs Doherty does, the more he seems to relax. He never becomes incoherent, though occasionally he seems confused.

Meanwhile, Carl Barat’s new band Dirty Pretty Things is garnering buzz here and across the pond (obvs) after blowing away the curious at two (four?) SXSW gigs (despite one being cut short by Austin cops).
