TED CANTU: Hot Metro Finds Looks At The Fabulous Return Of The Libertines In The UK

London, England –  The UK hard rock sensation, The Libertines, have patched up their differences and have started performing again in front of fans. Pete Doherty and Carl Barat have been through ups and downs that have involved drugs, court cases and bouts of depression. It almost seemed hopeless that the band would ever get things in order but the fans have never let them completely go. Guitarist and singer Pete Doherty even had a breakup with his super model girlfriend Kate Moss. Despite all of the difficulties the band has reunited and have put on shows in Hyde Park in the UK. Now the band is looking at putting on more shows in London.

The reception has been outstanding. There were reports of excited 60,000 fans crashing through barricades causing the show to be stopped two times. The show was allowed to continue as fans eagerly climbed on top of scaffolding and fences around the stage. The band seems to be on solid ground again as more shows are being planned. The only question now is will the Libertines actually tour in the U.S. or not. Hot Metro Finds looks into the history of the band and the trouble that surrounded them in 2003 – 2013.

Hot Metro Finds creator, Ted Cantu, looks into how the band first came to the surface in America despite lack of promotion and almost zero major media presence. The articles go into how the Libertines tracks would be made available through file sharing networks while the Internet matured into the big beast that it is today. Now, with the creation of online video websites such as, the music is more readily available. In addition to theLibertines Pete Doherty’s other band – The Babyshambles is also more readily accessible.

While brands like MTV now center on teen pregnancy the focus of Hot Metro Finds has always been centered on new music. Some of the music is not really radio friendly or even has any commercial like appeal in some cases. Hot Metro Finds has centered on indie bands with cult like followings that have real artistic integrity. The Libertines definitely fit into that category and the music really does have a voice all its own.
