This is a single worth buying. Killamangiro is an awesome song full stop! The B-side The Man Who Came To Stay is another really good song which you won't find on the album or anywhere else. This is the version of Killamangiro that Babyshambles originally released which is a little different from the album version, but in my opinion is better. Go buy now!

Ah sweet Doherty. Tis is the original Killamangiro version that came out on the beloved radio in 2004 and not the Down in Albion version. It is more exciting and raw, with his strange poetic speech during the guitar solo part. 'Hate, can do without hate. I believe in love,' he moans.
Also, The Man Who Came To Stay should've been an A-song, it is wondrous all the way.
See it, taste it, lick it, witness the awsome artwork of Hannah on the album sleeve. Put ear to speaker and hear the sound...
Get it, you fiends!

So, the man without a plan has finally released a single with his inspiring Babyshambles band, and after numerous live shows of Killamangiro (including, crazily, CD:UK) it hits the shelves, and is it good?
From the opening monotomous drumming you know this guy is, and always be a Libertine, but there is variety in this song to call it his own, and its certainly no Libertine B-side or rip-off. Without using a cliche, it's a lot more experimental than any Libertines song. Not in the sense of using synthesizers and ancient indian folk lore music or anything, it's just that the song structure is well, a bit shambolic. Ranging from the heavy drum beats, to Pete's wailing, with heavy guitars, light tinny guitars, and screeches and clatters, its held together...just. And that's a loose just.
The second song on the single is 'the man who came to stay' which is as good as, if not better than the single. With a great melodic chorus, about sailing into the sun, its another romanticized, alcoholised ditty from Doherty.
The lyrics throughout always point to Dohertys contradictory view on the industry, 'why would you pay to see in a cage, a cage some men call a stage.' and 'just thought i'd let you know, the radio broke my heart'. Typical Libertines, but we know this, and thats why its good.
So its melodic, shambolic, heroic, alcoholic and poetic. It's the Babyshambles, what do you expect? Four stars only however, because their live shows show even more potential, with Wolfman and BlackBoy Lane in particular, just begging to be recorded. If he manages to stay alive, the album is expected early next year.
