In today’s example of shows we never knew we needed, The Libertines have unveiled a hilarious new puppet show called ‘Skint and Minted’, which tells the story of the boys in the band.
Narrated by “the main one”, drummer Gary Powell, the five minute first episode is a must watch for Libertines fans, as the lads tell the story of how they first got together and signed to Rough Trade.
“This is perfect,” says Carl in puppet form to Pete. “We’re gonna be in a band with Gary and John, and we’ll always be friends and never ever argue or split up or steal each other’s things!”
Watch episode one now below.
It’s the third preview of debut album ‘Makes Me Sick Makes Me Smile’, due this month.
It comes alongside the news that they’ve signed to Dead Oceans.
The trio’s last album came in 2017 with ‘After Laughter’.
The “dance banger” track, which appears on imminent new album ‘Hold The Girl’, is described as a “turning point” in the record.
