Peter Doherty has spoken about his love affair with London and The Libertines‘ early attempts to secure a record deal.

The musician also spoke of the inspiration for The Libertines early ballads ‘You’re My Waterloo’ and ‘Music When The Lights Go Out’.

Speaking on Mary Anne Hobbs’ BBC 6 Music show, Doherty said that although he isn’t from London, he “wanted to belong somewhere” and “wanted to be part of a community.”


Hobbs suggested that it was a ‘London love affair’ for both Doherty and Carl Barât, to which Doherty wholeheartedly agreed. “We used to spend a lot of time walking around and climbed into Embankment gardens a lot, to the point when security… they’d turn a blind eye in the end because we’d always get into the little amphitheatre bit, the little stage, where we’d, y’know, take our guitars.

“We wrote a lot of songs and practise a lot of them early songs; ‘You’re My Waterloo’ and ‘Music When The Lights Go Out’. Sort of grand, epic ballads as we thought they were,” he continued. “We’d belt them out to the dawn, with just a couple of pigeons coughing along.”

Doherty also spoke of a time when both he and Barât took a demo tape to Food Records, with the label saying they didn’t have a tape player to listen to it on.

“So we ran up Camden Road, got the guitars and they locked us out. We thought it must have just been a mistake. They were hiding under the window sills. We were shouting up at the windows saying ‘you’ll love this one, honestly, this one’s going to be big!'” he said.

“It didn’t occur to us that people in the music industry wouldn’t want to hear the music first hand. I mean the logistics of that are probably a nightmare; if every band who wanted a deal turned up to play at the office.”
