Dirty Pretty Things

Biography

From Waterloo to Los Angeles. Brazil to Italy. Oxford's Zodiac to Texas's SXSW. From Lambeth Road to Glasgow. Carl Barât's been on quite a journey recently. He needed to do the leg-work. There was a novice rock'n'roll gang to lick into shape, fresh songs to be both polished and roughened, and old ghosts that needed laying to rest. The beginnings of Barât's new band had to be more coherent than the endings of his last. Dirty Pretty Things are about music and performance and excitement and camaraderie and nothing else. Every note had to be right.
