This review is from: The Libertines Bound Together: The Story of Peter Doherty and Carl Barat and how they changed British Music (Hardcover)
Very well written and really the only book you'll ever need about one of Britain's finest, if most short lived bands. The author of course was there for a great deal of the band's lifetime so is well seated to give an accurate portrayal of just what The Libertines were about. And what their music still and always will be about. Roger Sargent's photos complement all of this nicely and add to what is, as well as an informative read (even for the biggest of fans) is also something of a nostalgic experience. As Peter, Carl, John and Gary are all of course still continuing with their various musical endeavours it is a story that is far from over. However "Bound Together" acts as a timely reminder, or at least a kick up the bottom to the wider world, of the importance and brilliance of The Libertines.
