LIBERTINES US, THE: Reunion: CD

These are the original Libertines from the 1980’s, Cincinnati, Ohio to be exact. I guess we couldn’t expect Pete Doherty and the gang to do a Goggle search before they named their outfit, eh? Great power pop jangle-think Murmur era R.E.M. with less mumbling on the vocals. An undiscovered band waiting to be embraced by the masses. Look for a new anthology this summer. This seven song release is a tease I say! My copy did come with a cool B+W photo from a gig in 1985 though.
