Welsh Pete

Pete Jones’s mod odyssey began in 1994 when he moved to London from South Wales and worked in a well-known Carnaby Street mod emporium during the Britpop years, and later played guitar in various bands most notably Kill City on Alan McGee’s ‘Poptones’ label.

Touring with The Libertines inspired Pete to write a fly-on-the-wall book about the band, with whom he remains good friends, which became a bestseller and appeared in Mojo’s Top 5 Books of 2005. Pete also appears in the forthcoming movie ‘The Libertines: There Are No Innocent Bystanders’ by legendary NME photographer Roger Sargent.

Pete is currently working with Modcast’s own Jonny Owen – co-writing and appearing in football hooligan spoof ‘The B-Team’ and his own ‘Modern Life is Rubbish’ an internet comedy about a mod who’s losing his hair. It is, says Pete, “totally autobiographical, sadly.”
