It Started Fast But It Ends So Slow

If you can ignore the soap opera, the tabloids, drugs, the band of a generation, burglaries, supermodels, prison, arrests, blood and syringes, break-ups, re-unions, solo bands and side projects, 'the fifteen quid I just shelled out for your second album' (quote Nigel Blackwell), and all the other detritus and debris that surrounds The Libertines, you'll notice that Don't Look Back Into The Sun (B-side to I Get Along in 2003) is a magnificent song.

I love the Libertines.

Is there a finer lyric than -
There are few more distressing sights than that of an Englishman in a baseball cap

Can't think of one off the top of my head.
