Art Brut were brilliant fun last night.
Why did I not pay attention to them ages ago?
when i first saw them live at the end of 06. go us?
They were great, although you couldn't hear the string section for shit. And their bass player has a funny name, I think it's Roberta Riff or something...
It's not the most dignified stage name you've ever heard, is it?
I recognise her from somwhere, was she in another band before Art Brut?
She's funny, though. I like how she sings along to every song like mad.
But for some reason I can't take my eyes off her. Isn't she going out with Eddie Argos?
Last I heard he was engaged to one of the Chalets.
And so did The Chalets, sadly. Shame, I loved that band, and Eddie and Paula seemed like a very good couple.
Eddie has a lady in America.
i don't think she'd even picked up a bass before joining the band.
if you want to be negative go to a foals thread
that was the best gig i've been to so far in 2008 (of about 30 or so gigs already). it was seriously, seriously FUN. where were you standing?
eddie argos is pretty amazing.

(formerly Paranoid Dog Bark) in Herne Hill tonight? I'll be there...
it was totally ace! Eddie bumped into me as I was coming out of the ladies toilets (his mistake) before the encore. he was sweetly apologetic.
loved them so much. havent really heard the "new" album. more fool me.
but the tracks they played from it yesterday sounded great.
how was the dananananaykroyd gig?
Art Brut VS Satan is an instant classic. That gig made me so happy!
It's still tagged as Lesson Learnt though. Should I up it?
It's different from the first one obviously, but still seriously good fun.
the same Jaz-Z speech?
It made me laugh a lot first time round but got a bit tired after the third time.
I'm so not down with the kids.
They were excellent in the Mean Fiddler a few years back.
But their second album is a bit shit.
It's a little bit complicated.
I was right in front, in the ditch. He touched my shoulder during one of the songs.
Great, fun gig, though Eddie's vocals were a bit off. The guest spot from the guy from We are Scientists on 'Bang Bang Rock and Roll'.
Official Secrets Act were also good.
there was also the cutest blond girl to the left of me a few people back. Wish i had the guts to talk to her. Oh well...
dancing like you were on a cocktail of pills. good stuff.
i think i know the girl you're speaking about. i'd let her spend a night with me.
Quite possibly. I'm teetotoal as well.
Art Brut is my drug of choice.
they should use that.
i don't know what you mean about eddie's vocals being off by the way, they seemed fine to me. what was wrong with them?
And i was right in front! He was mumbling a little as well. I knew all the songs anyway, so i didn't care...
the sound at the front is hardly ever brilliant. i guess if you were standing next to the sound desk it might have been more agreeable.
They are clearly the best band in Britain, tied with Radiohead.
I know everyone will disagree.
from my one experience of them, last night.
Yep - they were excellent (as usual).
However, did anyone else think it was a little bit odd that Eddie Argos didn't once comment on the fact that they had just 'parted company' with their record company?
For a man so obsessed with pop music and all that goes with it I thought EMI would at least get a mention in passing...
I've seen them 3 times now, and they just get better.
i have loved them longtime, but dear god, when did they get so tight? i suppose this is what happens when you don't see a band play for a year and a half. they were always good but kind of shambolic before. eddie is the same as he ever was [just as well really], but the rest of them have gotten REALLY tight. it's a great combination. i was dead pleased last night. yay. well done them.
i was always under the impression the band couldn't really play their instruments to be honest, but they were great.
has the drummer always played whilst standing up?
