The Liberation Of Carl Barat: Dirty Pretty Things

Jenny Valentish, Inpress, June 2006

IT'S LIKE THE dressing room of the Ziegfield Follies in here. Members of Dirty Pretty Things are shimmying around the photo studio, trying on jackets, fluffing and mugging for the camera. It's not quite the shirts off, group-cuddle closeness of the Libertines - hey, Carl's already had his heart broken once - but it's, like, pretty pally.
