You’ve probably heard the name The Libertines being used in association with everything else except music – except music. The band’s leader Pete Doherty is one of the most well-known figures of the “sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll” lifestyle. He’s been a regular feature in tabloids, taken every drug known to man, danced with death and has even been married to Kate Moss. The other members of the band aren’t exactly mummy’s boys either.


Messing around is a part of the Libertines – there’s no denying it – but they were a lot more than just a drunken bundle of trouble or one of the many saviors of rock n’ roll declared by the British media. They were about dynamic rock and great songs, a band with a strong will of its own. In 2010 the band tried to leave all their strong disagreements and tangles behind in order to make a comeback. Roger Sargent’s movie The Libertines – There Are No Innocent Bystanders documents this windy road and doesn’t concentrate on the tabloids but the people behind them. The rowdiness, messing up and the rock n’ roll lifestyle are still there, too. When it comes to the Libertines, what else could there be? There are some things you just can’t leave behind…


The director Roger Sargent was trusted photographer of the Libertines for years and was in the band’s close circle of acquaintances. He is, thus, able to get extremely close with his interviewees and is, for example, able to unwind the complicated relationship between the two frontmen, Doherty and Barât. The photographs of Sargent also play an important role in carrying the story towards the long-awaited final concert.

Drowned In Sound Review

Didz Hammond reviews ‘There Are No Innocent Bystanders’ for

One of the things you should and perhaps already do know is that Roger was always there. He was always bloody there, click-click-clicking from behind his camera. His friendship with the band was forged extremely early in their rise and proved enduring enough to straddle the warring factions when the relationship between the two front men crumbled in a way that seemed irreparable. Look at any published photo of the Libertines and the credit will almost always be Sargent’s. Look at live footage and it’s his bald, bald head poking out from behind the amps. Click, click, click, click, clicking. He was always there because the band trusted him. And with Carl’s natural paranoia, and Peter’s narcotic psychosis, this was no mean feat. They trusted him because he was (and is) a very good friend and because he always made them look great
