We love Peter Doherty here at Uneek Ibiza. His riotous gig as part of The Libertines at Ibiza Rocks 10th birthday in summer 2015 was one of the most talked about and legendary gigs on the White Isle in recent history. Since then we’ve seen him a number of times playing alongside both The Libs and as a solo artist. Whilst he’s well known for writing big anthems with The Libs and Babyshambles, when it comes to his own solo material, it’s more stripped back acoustic action. That’s not to say there hasn’t been big tracks; on his last album there was the likes of Arcady and Last Of The English Roses, which always provide large moments of his gigs.
Peter’s new album Hamburg Demonstrations drops this Friday December 2nd, and there’s some great tracks on it. We were lucky enough to receive an advanced copy a few weeks back, and we’ve had it on the office speakers ever since. From the slow and lovely melodies of ‘Kolly Kibber’, the uplifting ‘Hell to pay at the gates of Heaven’ and the beautiful yet sad ‘Flags from the old Regime’, there’s something for all Doherty fans.
Without doubt our favourite track of the album is ‘I dont love anyone (but you’re not just anyone)’ which we’re treated to twice, with the original and a slower version 2 on there too.
Peter Doherty’s Hamburg Demonstrations is a great album, full of beautifully written poetic tracks from one of the most iconic singer songwriters of the modern era.
