London's Dirty Pretty Things have called it quits. The band is notable for featuring former Libertines members members Carl Barât and Gary Powell, as well as that band's touring guitarist Anthony Rossomando (also of New York/Boston band the Damn Personals). The band announced:
It is with some sadness we announce the farewell of the Dirty Pretty Things. It's been a glorious three years which we all would gladly live out again, but it is time for us to try new things. (not The Libertines). We are reluctant to give up touring but will give the last waltz everything we have and are determined to go out as we came in, after which we all have other ventures to be getting on with and splendid future plans. Heartfelt thanks to all who made it what it was, much love and we'll see you on the road.
Dirty Pretty Things most recently Romance at Short Notice earlier this year.
