Babyshambles unveil new BNP-bashing song at London show

Pete Doherty's band play six new songs at club show

Babyshambles played six new songs at a London club show last night (November 5) – including a new anti-British National Party song, ‘The BNP Blues’.

Pete Doherty‘s band were headlining the Smash And Grab clubnight at Camden Proud Gallery. However, their set was almost shut down due to fans surging forward, with the crowd eventually spilling onto the stage near the end of the show.

They opened with new song ‘Fireman’, which Doherty introduced as, “About a junkie in Portugal – the only country England have never been at war with. Unless you count Australia”.

‘The BNP Blues’, played later in the set, showcased a frenetic Sex Pistols-esque direction that typified the new material.

The set also included covers of two UK Number One singles from the ’80s – Michael Jackson‘s ‘Billie Jean’ and Pet Shop Boys‘West End Girls’.

The show ended with a mass crowd invasion as the band ended with ‘Time For Heroes’ and ‘Fuck Forever’, following pleas from venue staff for fans to move backwards – Doherty instead urging them to surge forwards.

‘Beg, Steal Or Borrow’
