Formé en 2005 par Carl Barat après l'arrêt des Libertines, le groupe Dirty Pretty Things a annoncé sa séparation au NME. Restent deux albums: Waterloo To Anywhere (2006) et Romance At Short Notice (2008).
Un pas de plus vers la reformation des Libertines ?
Carl Barat: "It's been a glorious three years which we all would gladly live out again, but it is time for us to try new things (not The Libertines). We are reluctant to give up touring but will give the last waltz everything. We have and are determined to go out as we came in, after which we all have other ventures to be getting on with and splendid future plans. Heartfelt thanks to all who made it what it was, much love and we'll see you on the road."
