Episode notes

For the first episode of this series of Tim’s Listening Party, Tim is joined by one of the most renowned song-writing duos in British music history, Pete Doherty & Carl Barat of the Libertines.

Notorious, raucous, shambolic and ramshackle but brilliant, poetic, smart and witty, they are the indie heroes for a generation. Defined by extreme ups and downs, their music has survived through it all and so have they. Amongst a busy field of indie bands in Great British indie renaissance of the 00s, many would go as far as calling them the most important one.

Now, they have returned with their first album in 9 years and their fourth record overall, All Quiet on the Eastern Esplanade.

Pete & Carl will be talking about that new album, recording in Jamaica, plus Carl & Tim remember a band they once formed together.

All Quiet on the Eastern Esplanade was released on 5th April 2024 on Casablanca & Republic.
