You might not know this about me, but aside from being one of Old Media is Dead's top 69 under 69, and a sought after dinner guest, your man Joe is also the nations leading Libertineologist. Tomorrow (September 11, 2015) The Libertines will release their third album, and first in 11 years, I'm pretty jazzed about it, or I was until I realised my copy isn't arriving until hopefully sometime next week. I almost regret how much I paid to get the deluxe box set, but whatever, I bought it when I was gainfully employed and the Canadian dollar was a little stronger. That's not really the point of this post though, I'd like to take this time to highlight the 5 best Libertines tracks (so far) in no particular order, hopefully serving as a primer for anyone unfamiliar with what is probably a top 3 band.

1. Time for Heroes

2.  Last Post on the Bugle

 

3.  Tell the King

4. Music When the Lights go out

5. Never Never

There you go, are those actually the five best LIbertines tracks? Maybe, I dunno, I could have made a longer list but then I would basically just be posting both their albums in full. This is probably a solid introduction to them.

Here is some of the best post breakup stuff from members of the band for when you've exhausted your LIbertines library.
