Barat Plans To Contact Doherty

THE LIBERTINES singer CARL BARAT plans to get in touch with estranged bandmate PETE DOHERTY, following the group's split last month (DEC04).

The pair have barely spoken since Doherty quit the group last May (04) after failing to kick his addictions to heroin and crack cocaine.

But after calling time on the CAN'T STAND ME NOW hitmakers after a gig in Paris, France in December, Barat says he is ready to reconcile with his long-term friend.

Doherty recently complained Barat had ignored his attempts to make contact, but Barat says, "I intend to contact Peter. I'd like to embrace him on a level of friendship. I don't want him thinking I'm avoiding him. I want him to remember I love him. I get upset when he says things (to the media) that make me sad. I read it. And he knows I read it.

"I feel nothing evil towards Peter. I get angry sometimes but I know better than to spread it to the rumour mill and the gossipers, like some kind of virus."
