Dirty Pretty Things are an English band fronted by Carl Barât, a former member of The Libertines. The formation of the band was announced in September 2005, after a dispute between Barât and Pete Doherty led to the breakup of The Libertines in 2004. Barât had worked with Vertigo Records and had previously revealed that his new project was with the label. Didz Hammond announced he was leaving the Cooper Temple Clause[1] to join the band alongside ex-Libertines drummer Gary Powell and guitarist Anthony Rossomando, who had filled in for Doherty following his departure from The Libertines. Dirty Pretty Things played their first shows in October 2005 in Italy and Paris, France.

Initially, the band's name caused problems. A four-piece band from Salisbury had been playing as "Dirty Pretty Things" since early January 2005, claiming to have already trademarked the name in the UK[2]; the two groups came to an agreement over the name, and the band was renamed Mitchell Devastation. An Australian band had been playing under "Dirty Pretty Things" since 2003, although it also opted to change it. The name was shared by Barât's club nights in venues throughout London; they assumed the name "Bright Young Things" to avoid confusion.

Formation and first album

Dirty Pretty Things began recording their first album in Los Angeles, California with high-profile producer Dave Sardy, and in Glasgow, Scotland with producer Tony Doogan. "You Fucking Love It", a track from the band's debut album, was made available on a free CD with the April 1, 2006 issue of NME entitled "NME and MTV2 present Best Newbands Showcase 2006".

The band's debut album, Waterloo to Anywhere, was released on May 8, 2006, reaching number three on the music charts and receiving critical approval. The first single (and first official band release) from the album, "Bang Bang, You're Dead", was released on April 24, 2006 and reached number five in the singles chart in its first week of sales. The second single, "Deadwood", was released on 10 July 2006 and reached number 20 in the singles chart. The album's third single, "Wondering", was released on September 25, 2006 and reached number 34.

The band toured extensively in the UK during the first half of 2006. They played their first American show at the SXSW festival in Texas. During the summer of 2006, the group played at several UK festivals, including the Gonville & Caius College May Ball 2006, Isle of Wight Festival, Wireless Festival, T in the Park, and the Irish festival of Oxegen. The band played with the Red Hot Chili Peppers at their concerts in Ipswich and Coventry in July 2006. The band were supported on their debut tour of the UK by The Hurricanes, an unsigned Edinburgh based band.

On May 13, 2006 Barât and Hammond appeared on the football show Soccer AM. The pair appeared to be drunk following a night out after a gig in Wolverhampton, causing fellow guest Noel Gallagher to compare Barat's slightly incoherent rambling to that of his brother, Liam.[citation needed]

On holiday in Taipei, Barât broke his collarbone after falling from a motorbike during a drinking session, leading to speculation that Dirty Pretty Things would have to cancel upcoming performing dates in North America.[3] However, the band recruited Josh Hubbard, the guitarist from Hull band The Paddingtons, to play guitar while Barât's injury healed. Barât, sans guitar and his arm in a sling, appeared on stage in Edinburgh's Corn Exchange on August 28, 2006.[citation needed]

On 16 October 2006, the band released a DVD, Puffing On a Coffin Nail, which featured more than two-and-a-half hours of concert footage and documentaries. On 25 October 2006, Barât appeared as a special guest at Paul Weller's set during the Electric Proms, duetting on Peacock Suite and "In the City".

Second album

The band are preparing songs for their second album. The release date is not yet known. They have written 15 songs, half of which will probably make their way onto the final album. Speaking to NME, Anthony Rossomando revealed that the band plan to record the album in Summer 2007, to have it ready for a tentative September release.[4]" Recently, Barât and crew have listed many new titles on their blog or played new songs live. These include "Suits, Punks, Military," "How Can They Be Tired of England?," "Come Closer," "Plastic Hearts," "Buzzards and Crows," "Radio Song," "Heroin Waltz," "Best Face in the Place," and "Company Man." These are all expected to appear on the new album.

"Radio Song" is to be released as part of the OST for "Run Fatboy, Run", on September 7, 2007 for download, and on September 10, 2007 on CD.

The band supported Muse at their June 16, 2007 Wembley Stadium show and supported the Red Hot Chili Peppers on June 24, at Goffertpark Nijmegen in The Netherlands. They also played at Glastonbury 2007 and performed several new songs on their new album. On July 22, the band supported Pet Shop Boys at the Eden Project in Cornwall, playing a slew of new songs including "Come Closer".[5]

In October the band appeared on the Love Music Hate Racism CD, which was released on the cover of NME. "9 Lives" was Dirty Pretty Things contribution to the free album and is in a finished studio form.
