Heralded as England’s answer to the Strokes, the Libertines disbanded in 2004 after two albums. Their ramshackle late-’70s sound endures in Dirty Pretty Things, a new quartet headed up by the band’s Carl Barât. This brisk debut is 33 minutes of artfully disheveled but tuneful Brit-punk that kneels at the altar of the Clash — especially on the ”London Calling”-style stomp of ”Bang Bang You’re Dead.” Think of Waterloo to Anywhere as a spin through London’s sordid nightlife, with Barât as your cynical, grumpy guide.
