Kids in the Riot by Pete Welsh
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


When Pete Doherty was imprisoned for burgling his best friend and bandmate Carl Barat in August 2003 it seemed the light had gone out on Britain's most exciting new band. Released early and reconciled with Barat, The Libertines confounded the critics by rounding off 2003 with three triumphant sold-out shows at London's Forum and kicking off 2004 with the prestigious Best UK band gong at the NME awards. For the first time, the full, extraordinary story of the most gifted yet nihilistic London band since The Sex Pistols is told. With the complete co-operation of the major players in their gloriously destructive ascent. A documentation of the break-ins, break-ups, punch-ups and make-ups of the first two phenomenal years of The Libertines. Illustrated with many unseen photographs from the authors archive.
