The Libertines Reunite

Apparently during the wee hours of Sunday morning, 3/4 of the Libertines gathered onstage for the first time since their split in 2004. The guys whipped through a brief, but I'm sure amazing, six song set. These guys rose to huge fame in England earlier in the decade with the whole garage rock revival, but for some reason they never seemed to hit it big over here in the states. Here's to hoping these guys have worked out their issues and can plan a full on reunion.

When I saw a show in London last January some Libertines tunes were played before hand and the crowd was stoked. It was nice to finally be around people who had a great appreciation for this band. I can only imagine what it would've been like to be at this.
