Libertines played a blistering and tightly-packed gig last night (November 19), as 150 fans crammed into a north LONDON pub to watch a career-spanning set.

Playing at the Duke of Clarence pub in Islington, the band were first reunited with their previous drummer Mr Razzcocks, who joined in with versions of early Libertines songs 'You're My Waterloo', 'Love On The Dole', 'Bucketshop', and 'Seven Deadly Sins'.

Regular sticksman Gary Powell then took to the stage and the band ripped through 'Horrorshow', 'Death On The Stairs', 'The Delaney', 'Don't Look Back Into The Sun' and 'What A Waster'.

Earlier in the evening, guitarist Pete Doherty's side-project Babyshambles also played a set including the tracks 'What Katy Did', 'Kill A Man For His Giro' and 'Hooligans On E'.

The gig also marked the band's first live appearance since guitarist Carl Barat injured his left cheekbone.Carl played part of the gig with a red bandanna tied around his head obscuring his left eye.

The guitarist had two painful operations after a whisky-fuelled accident in Wales, when he slipped and cracked his head on a sink.

Carl told NME.COM: "I've got 70 stitches on the inside of my face. I wasn't aware that it happened. I got out of the bath and came a bit of a cropper. I managed to destroy three shelves before the sink."

Libertines will be playing NME Presents... sold-out shows at London's Kentish Town Forum on December 16-18.
