Performer Notes
  • A promising U.K. post-punk-influenced band that, sadly, is best remembered for the drug-addled notoriety of band member and tabloid fixture Pete Doherty, the Libertines achieved stardom during their brief tenure in the Britpop spotlight from 2002 to '04. This collection presents a concise overview of the group's output, drawing largely from their two albums, UP THE BRACKET and its self-titled follow-up, including the wry, raucous "What a Waster" and the melancholy, all-too-autobiographical "What Became of the Likely Lads." These tracks, among others, showcase the volatile interplay between singer-guitarists Doherty and Caral Barat, who would go on to front Babyshambles and Dirty Pretty Things, respectively. While all the songs on TIME FOR HEROES are previously released, the inclusion of relative rarities such as the deceptively cheery "Don't Look Back Into the Sun," makes the compilation a fitting summary of the band's short-lived career.
Professional Reviews
Uncut (p.99) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "'What A Waster' still sparks with guttersnipe wit and 'Don't Look Back Into The Sun' makes a smart shotgun marriage of The Jam and The Only Ones."
