A fitting tribute from The Likely Lads

Last night saw The Libertines play a headline show at Robert Smith’s Meltdown, where they honoured their host with a cover of The Cure‘s ‘Boys Don’t Cry’. Check it out below.

Smith was chosen to handpick this year’s Meltdown line-up, selecting the likes of Manic Street Preachers, Nine Inch Nails, Mogwai, 65DaysOfStatic, Placebo and many more amongst The Libertines.

Performing at The Southbank Festival last night, Carl, Pete and co repaid the favour with a rousing rendition of The Cure’s classic single ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ among their career-spanning set.

Thank you Southbank. Thank you for not sitting in your seats. Thank you for having us. Amazing. X

Speaking to NME about their long-awaited new album, Libertines bassist Gary Powell told NME earlier this year: “Peter is constantly writing, that’s what he does. He’s been writing some poetry with a girl in Margate and recording with some other people down there. I’ve been writing some stuff. John sent some stuff over a couple of weeks ago that was great too. Carl is always proactive regarding everything he does.”

He added: “There’s a lot of stuff going on, we just need to finally get back together, so we can actually figure out what direction we’re going in. It shouldn’t be that difficult, because we approach everything from the point of view of The Libertines. We just need to make sure we push everything in that direction.”
