Babyshambles play pub gig

Pete Doherty showcases new songs

Babyshambles showcased a host of new tracks at a London pub gig last night (January 15).

Pete Doherty‘s band performed a 90-minute set at the Boogaloo Bar in Highgate.

As previously reported, the show was only confirmed on the day, but sold out within minutes of going on sale.

Along with tracks from their 2005 debut album ‘Down In Albion’, the four-piece rolled through a series of tracks from their recent ‘Blinding EP’ including ‘I Wish’, ‘Beg, Steal Or Borrow’, ‘Sedative’ plus the title track.

Babyshambles also performed a couple of new songs, including one called ‘Un-stookietitled’ – which look set for inclusion on their as-yet-untitled second album.

Later the band played the intro to Stone Roses classic ‘I Wanna Be Adored’ before they launched into ‘La Belle Et La Bete’.

Babyshambles ended the show with ‘Pipedown’.

The gig was the four-piece’s third in the last week after appearances at Camden’s Dublin Castle last Thursday (January 11) and a scheduled performance at an east London venue on Friday (January 12).

Doherty and his band are now due to play three sold-out shows at the Rhythm Factory in the east of the UK capital from January 17 to 19.
