Dirty Pretty Things frontman and semi-permanent member of The Chavs Carl Barat has hinted that the group could be on the verge of recording their first proper single.

The Chavs, who also consist of Tim Burgess and Jamie Reynolds from Klaxons, have previously only played impromptu gigs together.

However, Barat says that because of Dirty Pretty Things second album problems, the three may well record together soon.

“It's just been suggested by Tim Burgess that me and the other semi-permanent Chav member Jaime Klaxon write a song each and sort of go head-to-head and maybe record it...but I might be a little busy for that," he told XFM.

"But certainly these things have a habit of materialising very quickly which is why they're usually so rubbish but it'd be good to do the first good Chavs thing."

As previously reported, Gigwise understands that Dirty Pretty Things won’t release their follow-up to 2006’s ‘Waterloo To Anywhere’ until late summer.
