2007 Best Local Band Reunion
CityBeat
SUPERSIZE PICK
The Libertines US.
Singer/songwriter Walt Hodge came out of hiding last year and reconvened The Libertines more than a decade after their dissolution.
The jangly “College Rock” band found success in the ’80s with their local hit, “Everybody Wants to Be My Sister,” and their return (in fine form, no less) has proven to be a welcome surprise.
The band — which has made much of its past music available on download sites — did have to make one concession on the comeback road. The “US” was added to avoid confusion with the British band of the same name, even though that band imploded a few years ago due to drugs (it was the band Kate Moss’ boyfriend Pete Doherty played in).

Jack Rabid's Top Ten Jan. 21
The Big Takeover

The Libertines U.S. – live at Southgate House, Newport, KY, January 13

I’ve waited 20 years to see Cincinnati’s Libertines (i.e., the original Libertines from Ohio, not the more recent, now defunct punky British bunch), so it was a long-held dream come true to get to see them now that they’ve shockingly reunited.

It was definitely worth a trip to the Queen City for that! And given an upgrade in drummer since their demise in the late ‘80s, with the crisp Todd Witt now manning the stool, they’ve come back even stronger. WALTER HODGE’s songs have lost nothing since the Reagan era (shudder to think of it that way!) and Jimmy Davidson’s leads matched his old mate’s hard jingle jangle for taste and shading.

I’ve already said this before in the new issue, but if you haven’t heard “Bad Memories Burn” from their 1988 second album Tilt a Whirl yet in your life, you absolutely must, and to get the full effect, listen very closely to the words—for it is really Hodge’s forte to make one shudder in recognition of events in your own life. It can be heard, along with a two also worthy old songs, at myspace.com/thelibertinesus and you need to go there right now, to understand the next sentence: I will never forget how hard my heart was pumping when they ended an already great show—as good as any I had hoped as I boarded my plane the day before—with “Bad Memories Burn” right into another song from Tilt a Whirl found on the myspace page, “Black Garage Door.” Wow!!!! Hodge was working his whammy bar like a sick maniac on the latter as Davidson and bassist Randy Cheek manhandled their instruments like the 25-year touring vets they are, while Hodge howled over the mayhem. Just out of sight!
