Anyone else into these guys? I got Bang Bang Rock and Roll and at first thought it was ok, nothing major, but then I got a real urge to listen to it and quickly got hooked. They released an album this year, It's A Bit Complicated, which relies slightly more on riffs than clever lyrics but still kicks ass. 'I Will Survive' isn't the best place to start, but it's been in my head for ages.

Oh, and I remember hearing that Frank liked them, but that might have been a dream. I have a lot of dreams...

Art Brut are really great, It's a Bit Complicated is stronger, imho. I loooove the thick English accent.

FB/BF did mention them in an interview.

I used to have a real 'thing' against Art Brut, mainly their draw from The Fall.

BUT, I saw them a few months ago in my town and drunkenly accosted the singer (Eddie Argos) and have since rather liked them. They're brilliant live, and he's a cracking chap with the biggest eyebrows I've seen. I even commented on them (to my detriment).

Sounds like quite a night, care to elaborate?

The first album is pretty good, but I haven't heard the second one.

Emily Kane is a brilliant song.

New Art Brut track out:

Wham! Bang! Pow! Let's Rock Out!

https://pitchfork.com/news/art-brut-announce-first-new-album-in-7-years-share-song-listen/

Not sure how I feel about it, it's like they've become a parody of themselves now. Nothing particularly new or exciting about this at all. I don't know how the new guy's are going to fit in to the line up, sounds like the loss of Jasper and Mikey might have put a dent in their mojo.

I think I might have been at the last live gig they played together with that line-up at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2013 as well.

It's also (as far as I am aware) the first music they've released that hasn't been produced by FBF since three albums ago.
