'Dirty, smelly and 'orrible'

Billy Lunn of The Subways has launched a foul-mouthed and very articulate rant against Pete Doherty on Twitter. As well as describing the lead Babyshamble as ‘an antillectual, egotistical druggy. Dirty, smelly and horrible!’, he accused Pete of taking over an event at the Proud Galleries in grotty north London suburb Camden, at the expense of other bands who were cancelled to accommodate the indie wastrel.

‘I've just heard that Pete Doherty hijacked my friends' evening at Proud Galleries in London by turning up and demanding the stage, forcing all the other bands, who had travelled all the way there and were looking forward to playing, to cancel,’ purged Lunn. ‘Even more proof of how much of an inconsiderate tosser that man really is! And shame on Proud Galleries for bending over backwards to allow him to just do that. When will Pete Doherty just fuck off and move to the country?’

However, despite Lunn’s righteous anger Proud Galleries claim that no such thing actually happened, and a Babyshambles spokesperson said that what he wrote wasn’t a ‘million miles away from an accusation of theft and he's skating on very thin ice throwing that kind of accusation around.’ However, if you follow The Subway's Twitter Page, they are claiming that 'Regarding the (NME) article (which is linked to below), the bands WEREN'T paid and punters not wishing to see Babyshambles are now having to be refunded.' It seems The Subways have had to face the wrath of Pete Doherty's sychophantic trilby-wearing fans. Fight the good fight, guys.

‘It seems that the bands who did play actually received more money because of Peter playing the evening,’ claimed Proud Galleries owner Alex Proud to the NME. ‘Ticket prices increased on confirmation of Babyshambles but the original ticket buyers’ tickets were honoured at the original price. This was done with full co-operation and agreement between the venue and the promoters. Babyshambles were unaware of these negotiations but I think it is perfectly apparent they were handled in a professional manner.’
