The Libertines 'Gunga Din' by Roger Sargent

The Libertines 'Gunga Din' by Roger Sargent

David Knight - 6th July 2015

The Libertines are back, and are looking very much up for it. That was clear from their surprise set at Glastonbury, and it's very much the case with the video for Gunga Din, where their longtime filmmaking collaborator Roger Sargent has captured them in fine, suitably mischievous form in just their kind of place - wandering down Walking Street in Pattaya, the sex capital of Thailand - and hitting the booze. 

Roger Sargent has been documenting the making of the first Libertines album in over a decade - and he's now joined the directors' roster at Burning Reel. On the basis of this, danger and bad behaviour has returned to rock and roll. Not before time.   



"With the Libertines recording their first music together in 11 years, the last few months have been incredibly busy and chaotic. Having spent five weeks in Thailand filming with the band this shoot came at the end of a long stream of glorious pandemonium. The fantastic Burning Reel took me on as a director, after working together on a couple of small-scale music vids, and have helped me make order within the chaos. 

"Janna, my producer for this Gunga Din promo made an almost impossible task run super-smoothly and the result is a video that shows the true camaraderie and friendship that surrounds the Libertines return."
