The Libertines play live staring Pete Doherty, Carl Barât and John Hassall. This recording is from a live performance at the 12 Bar Club in London. This concert is probably the earliest and only video available to the public from the first incarnation of this band.
This gig played at the 12 Bar Club in London was among the first the band played and features John Hassall on bass. At this time the Libertines were still juggling the band line up however the songwriting duo of Pete Doherty and Carl Barat was firmly established.
Using the 12 Bar as their jumping board into live performance you can take a seat in the intimate club and enjoy this band without the need to suffer a huge crowd. The close interplay between Doherty and Barat is apparent and the band was not suffering the frictions later caused by some of the bands personal indulgences.
This concert is part of the lost concerts series from OnlineTV’s archives, which have been stored over the last decade in a warehouse in New York City waiting the day Rick Siegel would dig them out and start releasing them to the public.
Shot live at their concert @ 12 Bar Club this is a masterpiece for any collector and this clip is a low-resolution tease of the complete DVD.
