Shockwaves NME Awards Show: Carl Barat + The Heartbreaks + Foreign Office
This show was moved from O2 Shepherds Bush.
The former Libertines and Dirty Pretty Things frontman/singer and lead guitarist has also released a solo album, as well as starring alongside Sadie Frost in the play 'Fool For Love' and narrating the 'The Rime Of The Modern Mariner' a film about the London Docklands.
Barat got his new group, The Jackals, together via Facebook after posting an advert for guitarists, drummers and bassists pulled in over 1000 applicants. Those recruited were Billy Tessio (Guitar), Adam Claxton (bass) and Jay Bone (drums).
As a member of the Libertines Barât released two albums, Up The Bracket (2002) and The Libertines (2004). His next band, Dirty Pretty Things, released Waterloo To Anywhere (2006) and Romance At Short Notice (2008), followed by a solo album, Carl Barât, in 2010 and his first book Threepenny Memoir – The Lives Of A Libertine in the same year.
Carl Barat & The Jackals tour dates
The Morecambe four-piece play bright, witty and youthful anthems, combining ferocious, rattling drums and chiming guitars with Motown hooks that come together with the knowing swagger and melodic lushness of all great life affirming pop. During the last year, The Heartbreaks have performed alongside Carl Barat, The Killers, Kaiser Chiefs and The Courteeners along with performing for Bono in Milan, Burberry in New York and Kitsune in Paris. With comparisons to iconic musical heroes such as Morrissey and Elvis Costello, frontman Matthew Whitehouse has all the charisma, finesse and significance of a classic frontman. The Heartbreaks are Matthew Whitehouse (vocals), Joseph Kondras (Drums), Ryan Wallace (Guitar) and Deaks (Bass).
