On why hes collaborated with band, The Thirst, on his forthcoming solo album
Pete Doherty'Theyre f***ing dynamite, theyre young, full of beans, quality lyrics, they play guitars like b****ds and theyre like a proper little gang, as well I noticed, meeting them offstage theyre quite moody and hard to talk to, like a little closed camp and I like it, its how bands should be, dangerous.'
On wanting to work with UK rapper Klashnekoff
Pete Doherty'Been trying to but we keep turning up at different times, but it will happen hopefully. I love that line about swinging like McGuigan, I love that bit. From the manor where man is animal, selling flammable rocks, specialise in handling cops. Lambing you like fox.'
