It looks as though The Libertines may very well be getting back together, of one tabloid showbiz reporter can be trusted to provide accurate information.

Gordon Smart, he of The Sun's Bizarre fame, has claimed that Pete Doherty told him personally that The Libertines would be getting back together to perform next year. After a solo performance at the Love Music Hate Racism gig in Stoke, he said that 'definitely next year, we will do it'.

Which is a pretty ambiguous statement, as far as reforming a band goes, but fingers crossed they do something knew and different and not just a rehash of the old classics on the festival circuit like an indie Rolling Stones.
