Babyshambles Ink Parlophone Deal

Pete Doherty's rock quartet sign "long-term" contract, NME reports.

Slapdash British rockers Babyshambles, fronted by waif-dating and drug-addled tabloid star Pete Doherty, have signed a lengthy record contract with label giant Parlophone, reports. Although the duration of the contract is still unclear, a statement issued by the band revealed that the blokes “look forward to a long, fruitful, and creative relationship with Parlophone.”

Miles Leonard, Parlophone Managing Director, said he hoped Babyshambles would follow in the same footsteps as Parlophone stalwarts Blur. “Babyshambles, justifiably, have a great reputation for crafting some of the most exciting music around today, and in Peter Doherty they have one of the best songwriters of his generation,” Leonard declared in a statement.
