  Glorious Noise - What Became of the Likely Lads?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
Like so many great British bands, the allure of the Libertines was found in the complex and complicated relationship of its frontmen, Carl Barat and Pete Doherty.
They were witty and British like Morrissey and Marr without the politics, preaching or morbidity that has (unfairly) cast Mozzer as the voice of depression for nigh on 25 years.
In the two years since Pete Doherty was permanently sacked from the Libertines, both he and Barat have endured the searing spotlight of tabloid fame in England, survived personal drama—Doherty’s by way of increasingly disturbing drug behavior; Barat’s in the form of a tumor behind his ear—and released their first albums apart.

 Likely Lads, The
In many ways, The Likely Lads was television's response to the portrayal of north country youth in such films of the early 1960s as A Kind of Loving and Billy Liar.
As the series progressed the two characters emerged and their differences were to form the basis for the comedy and the development of the show.

The Likely Lads was a hit British sitcom created and written by Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais.

 The Likely Lads (1976)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
So many brilliant and successful comedies such as Rising Damp and Steptoe and Son have unfortunately fell by the comedic wayside but the Likely Lads is a refreshing exception.
The writing of Clement and La Frenais, the performances of Bewes, Bolam and Forsyth and the sharp direction of Michael Tuchner (previously directed Villain with Richard Burton) make this undoubtedly at the top of the sitcom motion picture tree.
Terry, bless him, was a world away from the ideal 21'st century man, when asked if he took his girlfriend home he replies "Well I put my slippers on and walked her to the bus stop" and he would 'offer Bob a beer but he has only got six cans'.

 The Libertines : What Became of the Likely Lads (EP) - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect
The What Became of the Likely Lads EP serves as a ramshackle, bittersweet footnote to the roller coaster saga of the Libertines.
The live versions of "Skag and Bone Man" and "Boys in the Band" are particularly electrifying, capturing the almost-falling-apart tension of the band's performances.
Though the Libertines' goodbye release feels a little contrived, it's still pretty affecting -- and shows, once again, how much of the band's art reflected their life, and vice versa.
