What became of the likely lads
Libertines Pete and Carl - the only joint interview
Duo give exclusive joint interview at Shockwaves NME Awards
Feb 26, 2009
Pete Doherty has said that The Libertines will reform in 2010 – while former band-mate Carl Barat has claimed that the pair are still The Libertines anyway.
The pair spoke to Neil Cole on NME Radio at the Shockwaves NME Awards last night (February 25) - their only joint interview on the night - with Barat suggesting that he had plans for a solo album before any reformation takes place.
Cole mentioned that if he was interviewing them a few years ago he would have been interviewing The Libertines, to which Barat said: "You have got The Libertines in front of you – what are you talking about?"
Doherty added: "I've been trying to twist his arm about that one," then later said, "2010".
"I always put Pete forward as a little guinea pig," Barat then joked. "Pete solo, that worked out, so I'll do that next year."
To hear the interview at 3pm (GMT) and 7pm today (February 26), tune in through Sky Channel 0184, Virgin Media 975, Freesat 727 or via NME.COM/Radio.
Pete Doherty won the Best Solo Artist award at the bash last night.
