Busted Barat Gets Critics Drooling
A broken collar bone hasnt stopped Carl Barat and his DPT band mates wowing LA
Injured Dirty Pretty Things singer Carl Barat took to the stage at LAs Music Box theatre on Tuesday night (August 8) with his arm in a Union Jack sling.
But despite nursing a nasty case of the broken collarbone, he and the band " including stand-in guitarist Josh Hubbard from The Paddingtons " won the critics as well as the audience over.
The Hollywood Reporter raved about DPT saying the band mix the rigorous Brit sounds of the Clash, Jam and Kinks with the modern simplicity of the Strokes.
The paper added, (Ex-Libertine) Barat's cocky-cool stage manner left no doubt that he's the star now, and the all-bash, no-flash Dirty Pretty Things have no need to look back.
Meanwhile Josh Hubbard has told of the moment he got the call to stand in for Barat. "I just bought a house in Hull and I was plastering," he says. "The manager rang me and all my plastering went to sh*t!"
We're sure it did!
