The Libertines

The Libertines appearing at this event

In the early Noughties, you could not escape the sight or sounds of these infectious modern-day punks. Whether dancing at Indie clubs, reading the NME or tuning into Radio 1, The Libertines were everywhere. Top 20 hits like 'Time For Heroes' and 'Can't Stand Me Now' were on heavy rotation and they gained a somewhat obsessive fan base. But after just two short 'n' sweet albums (2002's 'Up The Bracket' and 2004's eponymous 'The Libertines', both produced by The Clash's Mick Jones) it was all over. So what became of the likely lads? Personal problems and battling demons saw Peter Doherty and Carl Barat split up and go their seperate ways with various solo projects and forming new bands. But time is a great healer and they patched up their differences to reform in 2010.

Dan Lyons

Dan Lyons is a musician living and writing in Margate. Perhaps better known as the erstwhile drummer for Fat White Family and Phobophobes, his real job is a songwriter. He was born in Kent and moved back from London last year with his (romantic & musical) partner Freya Warsi to escape the noise and pollution of city life. 2017 saw Dan finally stepping onto centre stage; performing under his own name and calling upon a host of musicians from the South London music scene and beyond to complete the line up for his backing band. The songs written to appear on Dan’s debut album were mostly done so between Paris and London during a long, difficult summer crowded with loss and intrepid soul searching. They paint a picture of city life, a keyhole glimpse into an intricate and fragile heart. Echoes of Echo & The Bunnymen and ‘Rubber Soul’ era Beatles entwine with lo-fi sensibilities that nod towards The Go Betweens, Syd Barrett and The Clean.
