Babyshambles Is the New La’s


Lee Mavers, the singer/songwriter behind the well-loved but long defunct retro-sixties British pop band The La's has recruited Pete Doherty and the rest of Babyshambles to help him record the first La's album since their debut dropped all the way back in 1990. Mavers, well known in Brit rock circles for being a reclusive eccentric, reached out to the band after performing with Doherty at a solo concert, and work on the project is set to begin at some unknown point in the future. However, given that Doherty is famous for being kind of a train wreck and that Mavers has not completed a record in nearly twenty years, we're not going to get our expectations too high. In the meantime, we'll take this as another opportunity to revisit the La's classic single "There She Goes."
