Babyshambles, for those of you who don't know, is the band fronted by ex-Libertine Pete Doherty. They're debut album, Down in Albion, was impressive, and now that Pete's clean and about to marry Kate Moss, they've been hitting the studio and have recorded some brand new tracks for the upcoming Blinding EP. Most recently, they've teamed up with twenty-one other musicians including We Are Scientists, fellow ex-Libertine Carl Barat, The Kooks, and the Guillemots (seems a bit excessive doesn't it?) to record a benefit single of The Clash classic Janie Jones for Strummerville (The Joe Strummer Foundation for New Music). How Pete managed to find time in between staying sober, beating the shit out of papparazzi, and wandering around a hospital is beyond me. You can pre-order the benefit single here. Moving along, here are some mp3s for you to enjoy.
