Review of Art Brut’s new single ‘Lost Weekend’ what we did do.
Certainly an early candidate for worst single of the year.
Title: Lost Weekend
Label: Cooking Vinyl
Release: 16th May 2011
I first heard of Art Brut after lead singer Eddie Argos had a fight with Kele of Bloc Party, following disparaging comments made about each other’s band. This culminated in Kele referring to Argos as “Fatty Argos” and fists were thrown. The thing is, at the time, Argos was a bit chubs. Someone calling him fat is probably not worth brawling over. If he weighed himself and didn’t like the figure, would he punch the scales? The most pointless fight since Bam Bam Bigelow and Doink the Clown at Wrestlemania X, if you ask me.
