In case you didn’t already know The Libertines reunited to play slots at the weekends Reading and Leeds festivals. The band have always divided opinions but my feelings are clear, ignore the media circus surrounding them, they are one of the best bands of the last decade and of critical importance to the rebirth and rejuvenation of the UK indie/rock music scene.
Sadly like most of you reading I wasn’t there, judging by the footage on the beeb it seems they’ve come through it with flying colours and maybe they could pay Ireland a visit? Here are a few moments captured by the BBC whose festival coverage is always second to none. It’s a pity our ‘state’ broadcaster pretty much ignores our own festivals, more interested in the likes of Crystal Swing, show bands and making a career for Ryan Tubridy (rant over).
