Peter Doherty And Frederic Lo were at the newly reopened London Koko on May 13th.
Peter Doherty And Frederic Lo will continue their UK dates in Liverpool tonight after releasing The Fantasy Life Of Poetry & Crime last March – an album full of, ‘classy songs’ which found the Libertines man, ‘more relaxed and cogent than ever’ according to Live4ever’s review:
“Lo complements Doherty with lavish, European production akin to Jacques Brel without smothering him in it, with the results being the logical conclusion to his finest ‘solo’ hour, 2004’s For Lovers.”
“Seemingly impressed, Doherty brings his A game as his softer tones on the title-track work well with the luscious strings and spaghetti-western solo. The gypsy, eastern-European guitars on The Glassblowers (an ode to Whitechapel) are a pleasant surprise, while the lesser-spotted influence of solo McCartney is apparent on Keeping Me On File, all country acoustics and warm melodies.”
