eddie argos interview photoEddie Argos, lead vocalist and lyricist of art rock band Art Brut, was kind enough to sit down and chat with me before his band’s show at the Black Cat this past weekend. Eddie’s love of comics and milkshakes have now been immortalised in song (in Art Brut’s ‘DC Comics and Chocolate Milkshake’, a track from the band’s most recent album-length offering, ‘Art Brut vs. Satan’), so I just had to ask him about both. I also learned that he really likes playing at the Black Cat (score! [also detailed in his blog]) and Washington (score again!), and he and the band are raring to go on their month-long jaunt around this great land of ours. He is also a very frank and funny man – no surprise there. Have a listen.

‘Art Brut vs. Satan’, Art Brut’s third and latest album, was released in April and is available now from Cooking Vinyl in the UK and Downtown Records in America.
