Babyshambles: not "unreliable sods" anymore
Babyshambles have spoken to NME.com about their signing to Parlophone for the release of an EP, adding that they're no longer "unreliable sods".
The four-piece signed with the label's imprint Regal without even submitting a demo, following their departure from Rough Trade. Drummer Adam Ficek told the website: "We're just seeing if we like the label and vice-versa. But it's amazing really, we're made up about them signing us for the EP because they didn't even hear a demo. It's frightening when you consider we're such an unreliable bunch of sods. But we're not like that any more, so that's cool."
The band, as yet, have no label confirmed for their next album; their debut, Down In Albion, was something of a flop critically and commercially last year (DiS review here). They're in talks with both B-Unique and Warner Brothers, as well as Parlophone/Regal.
