Romance at Short Notice is the second and last album by Dirty Pretty Things, released in the UK on 30 June 2008. The first single, Tired of England, was released on 23 June 2008. The title of the album is a reference to the final line of the Saki short story The Open Window. The second track from the album, Hippy's Son, was made available free to download on the band's official website for a short time. On 22 June 2008 the band made the entire album available free for streaming at . Romance At Short Notice - Dirty Pretty Things.

Romance at Short Notice isn't just much more polished than the band's scrappy debut, it's also much more eclectic - to a fault. The album crashes in on Buzzards and Crows, a brooding manifesto against a scene self-obsessed embellished with carnivalesque organs, a flat-lining heart monitor, and what sounds like an angry mob it's followed by Hippy's Son, where Barat tears down any leftover traces of '60s peace and love with snarling invective and guitars.

Текст песни: This is where the truth begins Where teardrops glance the sallow skin You lose your will And I can lend you at Short Notice is the second studio album by Dirty Pretty Things, and the last before the band split at the end of 2008. Its name is a reference to the final line of the short story The Open Window. It is therefore considered the main reason for the bands split. Romance at Short Notice Q&A. Writers Carl Barât. More Dirty Pretty Things albums. Waterloo to Anywhere. Dirty Pretty Things move their music forward with this album, but they've sacrificed their clarity to achieve that. Read full review. New Musical Express NME. Sure, theres a residual whiff of mediocrity here, but Carls clearly found something else in himself as part of this new gang, and as Dirty Pretty Things music grows in assurance, it appears Pete will remain a solitary man for some time yet. Songs that used to bounce and strut with foolhardy glee now amble, lamenting, the stench of booze and self-pity turning Romance At Short Notice into a wake. Romance at Short Notice. Dirty Pretty Things Format: Audio CD. 2008 sophomore album from the British Indie outfit led by former Libertines guitarist Carl Barat. Recorded between London and Los Angeles, the follow-up to 2006's Waterloo To Anywhere perfectly demonstrates the band's songwriting progression and musical growth. There is added emphasis on the heartfelt, earnest and often angry lyrics from frontman and ex-Libertine Barat, while the Punk fuelled guitar riffs and gunshot rhythms remain. When Carl Barat first launched Dirty Pretty Things, there was a degree of goodwill. As the title suggests, Romance at Short Notice has an ad hoc feeling to it. A dozen songs about dreams drowned in drink and the claustrophobia of British life are a soundtracked by conservative indie rock.
