A new music video by the Libertines showcases numerous landmarks of a coastal Kent town.
The cinematic accompaniment to ‘Run Run Run’ – a new single by the indie rock group – was filmed in Margate and features shots of the town's most famous attractions.
Arlington House, Dreamland, Turner Contemporary, the Cliftonville Lido and the clock tower all appear in the footage.
In the video’s opening actor Geoff Bell, best known for his appearances in Girl with a Pearl Earring and Stardust, picks up Libertines front-man Carl Barât for a ride in his taxi.
Footage then shows them chaotically shuttling various passengers around, past the numerous watering holes in Bell’s retro Bentley Turbo motor, and stopping off to pay a gambling debt.
Originally fronted by Pete Doherty, the London band has strong connections to the town, having purchased the former Palm Court Hotel in Cliftonville in 2017.
The group renamed the establishment The Albion Rooms and converted it into a multipurpose building, housing a recording studio, hotel rooms, a bar and a restaurant.
The band’s new album, All Quiet On The Eastern Esplanade, is due to be made available for streaming on March 8 and was recorded at the Albion Rooms.
And to celebrate their newest release since their 2015 album, Anthems for Doomed Youth, the group will play special acoustic and electric sets at Margate Lido Complex on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th December.
