“We believe the act of creating public artworks is visual activism, punk ethics have always been at the very core of it’s soul. We are arming an inactive society with an alternative knowledge, standing up to ongoing vilification by the press and their immoral standards, and to the authorities who encourage the soulless gentrification and social control in our public space, whilst ignoring their duty of care.”

‘Peter Doherty & The Puta Madres’ was recorded at a family home overlooking a fishing village in Étretat Normandy, over four days last summer and mixed at Urchin Studios (East London). The album is engineered by Dan Cox (Laura Marling, Thurston Moore, Florence & The Machine) and produced by Jai Stanley (long time friend and manager). All the songs from the album were road tested over the last eighteen months across Europe at Festivals and headline shows.
Songs include the reflective ‘All At Sea,’ the raw ‘Punk Buck Bonafide,’ the upbeat and playful ‘Shoreleave,’ the joyous hymn of liberation ‘Paradise Is Under Your Nose,’ ‘Someone Else To Be’ Peter’s re-imagining of the Velvet Underground’s ‘Ride Into The Sun’ and Oasis’ ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger, ‘Traveling Tinker’ an elegy to Peter’s friend Alan Wass and ‘Who’s Been Having You Over’ with dialogue from the 1948 film adaption of Graham Greene ‘Brighton Rock’ and the cheeky poke at his own notoriety…or is it; “Your so Rock & Roll.”
Peter Doherty has released three album with The Libertines: (‘Up The Bracket’ (2002), ‘The Libertines’(2004) and ‘Anthems For Doomed Youth’ (2015) and with Babyshambles ‘Down In Albion’ (2005), ‘Shotter’s Nation’ (2007) and ’Sequel To The Prequel ’(2013) as well as two solo albums ‘Grace/Wastelands’ (2009) and ‘Hamburg Demonstrations’ (2017).
In the last few years, as respect for the power of rock and roll, at all levels, has gatecrashed it’s way back to the fore, we have fused our legends with potential future heritage stars to create something new. Peter Doherty remains a definite inspiration of the fast rising, arty, punky artbeat of the Newer Wave scenes and anti-scenes.
