Carl Barat: 'I'm too busy for a Libertines reunion'
Dirty Pretty Things played a live session on NME Radio earlier today (July 1) – the first band ever to do so.

See footage of the band playing the session by clicking on the video below.

The band performed 'Tired Of England' and 'Plastic Hearts', from their newly-released second album 'Romance At Short Notice', and answered questions sent in by fans.

During the session frontman Carl Barat said he was "too busy" for a Libertines reunion, following reports in the tabloid newspapers that he had been writing songs with former band-mate Pete Doherty again.

"I'm a bit busy at the moment," Barat said, when asked on air if a Libertines reunion would happen any time soon.

He later told NME.COM that reports that he had been writing with Doherty were false. "I haven't seen him in ages," he said, "although we do send each other messages of goodwill."
