the-libertines-sepia-poster-c11737612-741918Legs XI was a demo session recorded in the early days of The Libertines. It was never officially released but can be easily downloaded on the internet for free. The session was 8 tracks long and had a distinctive swing feel to it with Doherty feigning a Sinatra-esque vocal style. The session also features the former Libertines cellist Vicky Chapman. This session could have been released as an album or EP in its own right and features some of my favourite Libertines tracks

Music When The Lights Go Out

Hooray For The 21st Century

Love On The Dole

Bucket Shop

Sister Sister

Anything But Love


Seven Deadly Frenchmen

“If you still love me, by morning, oh you’ll find me waiting in the garden by the cherry-blossom tree. Bring tin cups of wine and cigarettes, come to me in pirouettes oh my darling, save all your love for me.”

The Legs XI session as well as all other Libertines and Babyshambles sessions can be downloaded from this site for free and legally, enjoy.

Another track well worth listening to is ‘Your My Waterloo’ it’s very pretty.

Awesome collection, clearly the Libertines did their best work under the radar. The French Session, their Pre Rough Trade Sessions, Odessa Sessions and the others…. all brilliant!

A great find!
