And they tell NME.COM that 'What A Waster' is "the most self-explanatory song in the history of pop"...

Hotly tipped LONDON four-piece THE LIBERTINES release their debut single on June 3 to coincide with the Golden Jubilee.

The double A-side on Rough Trade features the live favourites ‘What A Waster’ and ‘I Get Along’, it was produced by former Suede guitarist Bernard Butler.

Speaking exclusively to NME.COM, the band’s singer/guitarist Peter Doherty joked that ‘What A Waster’ was “probably the most self-explanatory song in the history of pop.”

He also said that it had been a pleasure to work with Butler: “He took us shopping for proper guitar strings, he comforted us and calmed us. I went in with an open mind and he was wonderful. He’s still so young-looking,” he commented.
