Babyshambles - Manchester Academy 1 - 26.2.06

Spared Her Majesty's Pleasure Pete Doherty and Babyshambles arrived in Manchester with not one shows, but two shows in one night. Designer Magazine's Shirlaine Forrest was there to capture him at the full band show at Academy 1 before he moved over to the intimate Jabez Clegg a few metres away. The last time he played Jabez Doherty was known strictly for his music and outside the music press the tabloids were probably giving more column inches to Baby spice than this rakish figure from Londinium. How times have changed?

Will Pete Doherty ever get back to being about the music?
