CARL BARAT has formed a ‘supergroup’ with members of THE CHARLATANS, Libertines and PRIMAL SCREAM – and they played their first ever gig last week, NME.COM can reveal.

Carl recently signalled he was planning to split Razorlight at the end of the year, telling NME.COM that he was taking the band off the road for the "foreseeable future". Barât has to have an operation and with Pete Doherty now seemingly out of the band for good, with Babyshambles going from strength to strength, Carl is looking to the future.

For his band first venture outside of Razorlight, he roped in some old friends to form The Chavs for a festive night of music.

Featuring Charlatans singer Tim Burgess, [/a] drummer Andy Burrows and Primal Scream keyboardist Martin Duffy, the band played a combination of Burgess-penned hits and solo material, [a] songs, and a cover of the Christmas classic ‘Fairytale Of New York’.

The show took place at the Tap And Tin in Chatham, the venue made legendary for the gig Razorlight played on the night Pete got out of prison for burgling Carl’s flat.

For exclusive interviews and pictures from the show, see this week’s NME which is out now in London and nationwide tomorrow (December 15).
