Babyshambles - 'Dr No'

Pete's back and he's wearing a silly hat

Here's what I can tell from the grainy footage of a recent live Babyshambles show in Paris: their new tune is a jaunty ska number that features Pete Doherty declaring that there are "sharks in the water and the water's deep" and he's "a proud man anyway", all while supping on a French lager, wearing a silly hat and sweating a lot. It's strangely great to have the cheeky sod back, isn't it.
