 Amazon.co.uk: Under The Influence - Carl Barat: Music: Carl Barat   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Barat has kept a low profile since the demise of The Libertines –; at least, compared to estranged friend and increasingly tragic tabloid fixture Pete Doherty – but his contribution to DMC’s Under "The Influence" series should be a very welcome return for Libs fans who prefer the music to the media freakshow.
A trawl through the annals of classic rock, punk, and new-wave, this is a selection that strongly belies Barat’s fondness for music’s dreamers, idealists, and romantics.
Given that definition, Carl's effort is on a par with every other shoe gazing, ex-public schoolboy indie kid.

 Carl Barat : Under the Influence - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
A collection of some of the songs that inspire him, Carl Barat's Under the Influence (which has a totally different meaning than former bandmate/professional addict Pete Doherty's "under the influence") is hardly shocking, given the sound of the Libertines and his solo work.
However, Barat's picks from American artists are more interesting, or at least less conventional: Dylan's "Hurricane" is more of a cult favorite than a standard.
The slightly skewed, moon-in-June sentimentality of the Mamas & the Papas' "Dream a Little Dream" can be heard in Barat's own ballads, while the lo-fi cheek of the Moldy Peaches' "Who's Got the Crack" reflects the Libertines' most shambolic moments.
