Barat Launches New Band

Former LIBERTINES star CARL BARAT has announced the line-up for his new rock band.

Barat will continue to work with Libertines drummer GARY POWELL and ANTHONY ROSSOMANDO, who took over from troubled rocker PETE DOHERTY as guitarist. Barat has also recruited THE COOPER TEMPLE CLAUSE bassist DIDZ HAMMOND to complete the outfit, which is as yet unnamed.

A statement on The Libertines official website says, "I am proud to announce that our new bass player is none other than the justly acclaimed Didz Hammond, formerly of The Cooper Temple Clause. He has never shown anything but love, compassion and talent from the off.

"Gary, Anthony, Didz and I have toiled day and night for a demo, and finally we have it. It is testament to the struggles of The Libertines, yet quite different."
