Retro Alert: Chas and Dave Split

Which Chas and Dave do you know? The cockney pub duo who sang such rubbish as “snooker loopy” and “rabbit, rabbit, rabbit” (we suggest some mind bleach), or the session musicians and retro duo the Libertines tried to rehabilitate by saying they were fans (which we think says more about the Libs agenda than Chas or Dave) and who drew a large crowd at Glastonbury as recently as 2007? Well, they’ve split up as bassist Dave Peacock is still suffering from the death of his wife. Best wishes to the pair, of course. Libertines co-frontman said this was a “cultural earthquake”, although it’s not clear if he’s being serious.
