Babyshambles were forced to do their best Death From Above 1979 impression during a gig last night when they found themselves minus two guitarists and without vocalist.
Both lead singer slash guitarist Pete Doherty and guitarist Mick Whitnall failed to turn up to the concert at the O2 Arena in London. That left drummer Adam Ficek and bassist Drew McConnel alone, bravely opting to attempt to play a few songs for the eager crowd.
In a last act of desperation, the band asked the audience if anybody knew how to play their songs. A volunteer was found in the form of 18 year old Geordie Jamie Bell (no, not that one), he took to the stage to perform the song "Carry On Up The Morning" from their album "Shotter's Nation". Despite being on the receiving end of some crowd to stage missiles, the makeshift performance was generally well received by fans.
Following the bands 'secret' show, Bell was whisked backstage to be congratulated by the band for being the first Babyshambles singer to remember the words to a song.
You can see some brief footage of the performance featuring Bell on guitar and vocals below. Bear in mind that they were still missing another guitarist and it's quite impressive really.
