Dirty Pretty Things – Gin and Milk

Thought I’d put this up there, quite an old song but still a great song, so I haven’t just put up here because Carl Barat is a legend but also because it is a great song.

I think this song is really in your face and carries a lot of a attitude and a meaning with it, which is really imporatant I think if a song has no meaning or story to it thenI find it quite weak.

The band only lasted 3 years, an made one really good album with a lot of strongs songs on it and then really terrible album 2 years later which I think forced the split because it was that bad. ¬†This song came off the first album, and is probably the strongest song on there. If you like this I think you should listen to the rest of the album which is called ¬†‘Waterloo to anywhere’, but please stay away from their second album ‘romance at short notice’ as this doesn’t reflect Carl Barats best work.
