Peter Doherty

I’m back from V2004, I had a great time and got quite a few pictures which I’m sorting through right now, probably the best part of the festival was the Hope Of The States acoustic gig but more on that very soon (BTW who was the girl from LJ who came and said hello during the acoustic gig? I looked for you afterwards to say hello properly but didn’t see where you went).

While I’m sorting V photos here are some pictures from Pete last night in Bethnal Green.

The Rocks Album Launch

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 9:18 pm

The last few weeks have been manic with gigs and parties pretty much every night. Of that the last two days have been especially good, yesterday was the Rakes and Neils Children in Brighton and tonight was the Rocks album launch. Special Needs played first and reminded me that they are absolutely one of the best bands around at the moment, I’ve been listening to Francesca and the b-sides for months now and you have to buy it when it comes out because it’s just a great single. The Rocks were really great too and after they played it was Art Brut minus Eddie, not to worry though as Eddie was replaced by Zac Needs, Ed Idiot and various members of other bands, they played the usual Art Brut set and everybody had a great time. I even managed to get to ‘sing’ a Top of the Pops, does that mean I’m now a member of Art Brut as well?

On another note I’m off to V Chelmsford at the weekend, I’m photographing for NME but I’ll be getting the train from Liverpool street in the morning so does anyone want to meet and head there with me and maybe a few other related NME folk? If you want to meet up contact me and I’ll give you my number.

Neils Children & The Rakes In Brighton

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 11:42 am

On Wednesday I headed to Brighton with Neils Children and The Rakes for a little ‘summer holiday’. We had a great day with Rakes karaoke, vodka on the beach and to finish it off the best performance that I’ve ever seen from The Rakes and their very special guest kazoo player .

Pete Doherty In Court This Morning

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 5:05 pm

Peter’s day in court


I arrive at the court, photographers are gathered waiting.


Pete appears through the crowds.


Radio reporter rushes forward for Pete.


The photographers leap into action.


They surround Pete as they take pictures.


Pete quickens his pace up the stairs.


Pete makes it to the door, surrounded by press.


He waves goodbye…

  And goes inside.

While waiting he goes to the window.


A photographer notices and there is a frenzy of picture taking.


Pete emerges.


Takes a bow.


And walks back into the waiting arms of the media.


After being asked questions from all angles…


…he smiles and starts to sprint away.

  Everyone goes crazy and follows in a pack.

But Peter is far too fast, I catch up with the photographers out of breath, someone has dropped their camera in the chase and holds up a broken flash. Pete still running is now just a tiny dot in the distance.

More pictures here and full news from the NME here.
