This weekend’s one-off Libertines reunion may a precursor of things to come, as Carl Barat recently told NME about the potential for the group to re-band and perform again. He, Pete Doherty, and drummer Gary Powell reassembled on stage to play a six song set for highly enthused fans (which you can see here).
After doing a gig at Rhythm Factory over the weekend in London in honor of Johnny Sedassy -– who passed away earlier this year –- Barat commented that he wouldn’t mind “[getting] on stage with Pete at some point soon,” and that he didn’t rule out playing with the whole group once again. Bassist John Hassall was out of the country for the Rhythm Factory gig.
Barat also mentioned that though he intends to work on his own solo material plus tour, "Next year is a new year, [and] we'll see what happens." We’ll also see what happens with Doherty’s criminal record, but we’re happy the idea is there.
