And Doherty is remarkably lucid, too.

Say what you will about the Libertines – or, specifically, about professional fuck-up Pete Doherty: they made great music together in their short career. Improbably enough, Doherty and Carl Barat have gotten back together to tour in the wake of last year’s reunion album Anthems for Doomed Youth. In Paris a couple of weeks ago they performed an inspiring set that was webcast in HD, and you can now snag the MP3s of the show for free download over at Big O zine.
MP3: Libertines – Live at L’Olympia, Paris, France; March 9, 2016.
Plenty of old faves were sprinkled in alongside the new material, so if you are a Libertines fan, this is pure manna. Don’t forget to get the downloadable artwork as well. The full tracklisting is below.
