Art Brut makes me want to rock out; and I'll get to do exactly just that when they come down to Australia for the first time on mid-December tour. Their debut album Bang Bang Rock & Roll has to be one of my favourite albums of 2005 simply for those punk rock parodies, deliberate daft sing-along anthems, Art Brut have been renowned for, and of course vocalist Eddie Argos' woeful odes spoken, (rather than sung) in that thick British accent. Two years on and they’ve managed to deliver their sophomore album, It's A Bit Complicated on the similar platform, infusing those heavy distorted noise and catchy repetitive riffs with witty wordplay. It's nothing new to expect but just new fun songs to get stuck in your head.
