Carl Barat hints at Dirty Pretty Things reunion
Carl Barat has hinted at the live return of his band Dirty Pretty Things.

The former Libertines man took to Facebook yesterday (February 22) to plant the seeds for a potential reunion with his former bandmates Didz Hammond, Gary Powell and Anthony Rossomando.

He wrote:

I'd forgotten there was so much love for the old DPTs (Dirty Pretty Things). Maybe we could do a gig someday.


Unsurprisingly, the Facebook post was met with great excitement from fans who replied with their support for the idea. Charley cook said, "Come on Carl make it happens," while Joanna Roberts wrote: "I couldn't think of a better way to spend my day than watching the DPT. I've been all over the place watching you fine guys."

Last month (January), Barat revealed to NME that he has recruited Johnny Marr and former Razorlight drummer Andy Burrows to play on his second solo album.

Godlike Genius Marr plays on one song demo, singer-songwriter Ed Harcourt plays piano, while Burrows has helped Barat out with some songwriting duties. Also helping with writing are Dan Miller, singer with London newcomers Eyes On Film – with whom Barat has been playing guitar recently – and Benjamin Biolay, the French actor/singer. Barat hopes to have the album out in the second half of 2013 but is yet to decide on a producer for it.
