DPT experience sophomore slump

Chances of the Dirty Pretty Things turning up at Glastonbury are dropping, as Carl Barat reveals the second album is proving, well, difficult:

"The recording process was quite long. We were approaching from a different style of doing things as well, less jingly-jangly and happy-go-lucky. It was a bit more planned.”

"Glastonbury's been rumoured but we don't have many bargaining chips when we don't have any songs out.

"It's quite frustrating not to have anything out. We're eager to get the record out but a lot of hiccups seem to be happening along the way.

"There are a lot of loose ends that need to be tied up properly and then someone had to go back to Los Angeles and pick up the files again and strange things like that."

See, last night's Buzzcocks might have had a lot of fun at the expense of the Yellow Pages, but if the band had had a copy round they could have looked up 'Couriers: International' and saved themselves a couple of days. Something to think about when Glastonbury are forced to stick The View on instead of the DPT.
