Regular rockers Babyshambles
Babyshambles are a "meat and potatoes" band.
The 'Killimangiro' rockers believe they will never win any awards or enjoy major commercial success but are happy to be a staple fixture on the live performance circuit for as long as they can.
Drummer Adam Ficek said: "I'd like to keep going as long as we can make a living from it. We're not really in it to become the biggest-selling band out there or to try and win the Mercury Prize.
"That never comes to bands like us, anyway. If you're a bigger band with a lot of media backing paying a lot of money, then that's fine. I don't really see us as that sort of band.
"We're more quiet and detached and unseen. We're not really that kind of pat-on-the-back Mercury band, or any of that T4 stuff. We're more your kind of meat and potatoes band, we just want to play."
The drummer also admitted that the group find it frustrating that their music is often overshadowed by the antics of their troubled frontman Pete Doherty.
Adam added to website This Is Nottingham: "It's always been that way. The tabloids do have that power and that potency to make or break you by how they portray you. You just have to hope that people can see through that.
"The shame is that people don't really see through that."Posted on 21 Dec 2009 07:30 to category : Band / Celebrity News
