Charismatic, mercurial and wayward genius PETER DOHERTY returns! English translation of Puta Madres? ‘Mother Fuckers’. Natch…
It’s difficult to imagine a better frontman to expel bad energy than Peter Doherty. He takes a show by the scruff of the neck; rising to the occasion with a generous rock ‘n’ roll spirit from the off, beautifully complemented by the wonderful and bizarre collective that is The Puta Madres
Recent shows have consisted mostly of tracks from ‘Hamburg Demonstrations’, particular highlights including ‘Kolly Kibber’ with its typically tongue-twisting Doherty-esque lyrics, and heartfelt renditions of ‘I Don’t Love Anyone, But You’re Not Just Anyone’.
And fan-favourite singalongs Albion, Last of the English Roses, You’re my Waterloo, Up the Bracket and Fuck Forever have all been there.
Peter Doherty shows tend to be balance on a knife edge with the room descending into tumultuous chaos. This may well happen here but, whatever, you can’t predict what a true rock’n’roll star will do – and that’s the genius of it.
