Plans are apparently well-advanced for a second Babyshambles album. According to Adam Fieck - and why would we disbelieve a drummer? - the thing's coming out on September 16th.
Oddly, the first report of it has turned up on Alla Jone's Uncut blog - Jones is very positive about the album, and has always been one of the more positive critics of the curate eggy last one, but he seems to have nabbed the exclusive first review through careful reading of the heavy-handed legalese on the advance copies.
The tracklisting, though, does sound like a parody of Pete Doherty songtitles:
Carry On Up The Morning
Side Of the Road
French Dog Blues
There She Goes
Deft Left Hand
The Lost Art Of Murder
Carry On Up The Morning? Jesus.
Buried in the review is an interesting note. That track is:
So, it sounds like Stephen Street has guided them towards being listenable. Or, as Jones admits, pretty much like any other band:
It's always been hard for the rest of Babyshambles to get people to remember they're there. Now, it sounds like they've been Sleeperbloked totally into the background.
