Art Brut are working towards World Peace, so anything that goes wrong is due to a plot against the band. Does British pop deserve Eddie Argos? A chart fixture in France, iconic in Germany (where his lyrics have been the subject of a lecture at Berlin University under the tile é─˛The Depressive Dandyé─˘), lionised by the cream of alt.America (Craig Finn and Jeffrey Lewis are fans) and a world class blogger to boot he is, as the NME pointed out in 2005, é─˘the new Jarvisé─˘ and so much more. é─˙Ité─˘s strange,é─¨ muses Eddie. é─˙Outside the UK people seem to find it easier to accept our songs on face value. We played in Brazil with Franz Ferdinand and all these school kids were singing é─˛Emily Kaneé─˘ to me. It really freaked me out.é─¨ Eddie may be an outsider worthy of Albert Camus, but his time is about to come.
