Dirty Pretty Things, Carl Barat’s workman-like, post-Libertines band has called it quits, the NME reports. The band, featuring Barat, Didz Hammond, former Libertines drummer Gary Powell, and Anthony Rossomando (who replaced Pete Dohert in the Libertines for a while), are going to work on their own musical projects, none of which is a Libertines reunion.
The band had just released their sophomore album, Romance at Short Notice, this summer, but the album's single ("Hippy Son") and the album failed to go very high on the U.K. charts. Their other album, Waterloo to Anywhere, was a minor hit when it was released in 2006. [NME]
