A music video shot in Margate for The Libertines new single Run Run Run has now been released.

The video stars Geoff Bell, who has appeared in many films, such as Girl with a Pearl Earring, Stardust, The Long Firm, Making Waves, The Business and RocknRolla, and shows numerous Margate landmarks from Dreamland and the clock tower to Turner Contemporary, the Cliftonville Lido and Arlington House.

The video was shot in the town last month with the single Run, Run, Run released on October 13. The band’s latest album All Quiet On The Eastern Esplanade was created at the band’s Albion Rooms and will be released on March 8.

In the video Bell alternates between driving a taxi – a Bentley Turbo R hired from Lee Collier of OhSoRetro – and partying in the Albion Rooms.

Language warning for start of video

To celebrate the upcoming album release there will be an All Quiet On The Eastern Esplanade Weekender – two days of special acoustic and electric live shows by The Libertines, at the Lido on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th December.

Carl Barât  and bandmates Pete Doherty, John Hassall and Gary Powell have been a part of the isle community since they bought the former Palm Court Hotel in 2017 for £458,000.

They renamed it The Albion Rooms  and set about a three year transformation creating a studio, hotel rooms, The Waste Land bar and restaurant at the five storey Victorian building.

In April Carl and partner Cruel Hearts Club’s Edie Langley also opened Justine’s nightclub at the former Inferno site in Marine Gardens, in Margate.
