The Libertines – Anthems For Doomed Youth

Despite the fact that it’s axiomatic by now – nowhere more so than in the hidebound narratives of rock ‘n’ roll – there are always more bands who think that you can, in fact, go home again.

You can’t.

The Libertines were, once upon a time, the hottest thing to exist in post-Strokes Britain, a furious mixture of CBGB punk and Rolling Stones swagger.  They were a band whose songs you could put on repeat and never tire of them.

Then drugs and mayhem forced them to take a decade off in the wilderness of C-list glamour and Kate Moss.

Now they aren’t.

End of story.
