BabyShambles (Peter Doherty, Mick Whitnall, Drew McConnell, Danny Goffey) are an English indie rock band established in London. The band was formed by Peter Doherty during a hiatus from his former band The Libertines, but BabyShambles has since become his main project (although recently he has been focusing on his solo work and possibly a full-time Libertines re-union).
In 2009, Peter Doherty released his first solo album, Grace/Wastelands. The album features contributions from Blur guitarist Graham Coxon, who plays guitar on all the songs on the album apart from ‘Broken Love Song’, Dot Allison, Peter Wolfe (aka Wolfman), and members of BabyShambles. The album was greeted with positive reviews, with many stating it showed Doherty’s potential as a songwriter and rubbished the idea that Doherty had squandered his talent due to his drug problems.
