Building on the success of their highly lauded 2004 singles "Formed a Band" and "Modern Art", Bang Bang Rock & Roll finds Art Brut obsessing over girlfriends, little brothers, and other rock bands while bashing out three sloppy chords that imbue their minutiae-riffing rants with a paradoxical fist-pumping grandeur. That this line comes amidst the album's most straight-ahead rock number- and that about 90% of Argos' lyrics discuss these very topics- is probably the best joke on the album, though it's not wanting for humorous company. The sly origin story "Formed a Band" and art-fetish celebration "Modern Art" (both re-recorded here from their 2004 single versions) may have laid the foundation of Art Brut's blog rep, but Bang Bang Rock & Roll's new material is equally hilarious when it aspires to be.

Young love, impotence, older love, charging head down at a stray Matisse, and being bored with the Velvet Underground: this is the stuff of one-shot art-punk. Mike Skinner, meet Eddie Argos-the perfect collaborator, and he'll be looking for work.
This item:Bang Bang Rock & Roll by Art Brut Audio CD £1. 3. Only 1 left in stock (more on the way). Many bands have promised to bring intelligence back into rocknroll, but few offer it quite so readily as on the debut album by Art Brut even if its a little too frequently brains of the somewhat smart-arsed variety. This is down to Art Brut band-leader Eddie Argos, a loud-mouthed student type in vintage blazer, whose half-sung, half-bellowed vocal rambling, witticism-strewn missives about beautiful girls, modern art, and Top Of The Pops surfs unsteadily atop a musical backdrop of cranked-up garage-rock clatter, distorted rockabilly, and good honest first-wave punk-rock.
Bang Bang Rock & Roll is probably the funniest indie rock album of all time, not a crowded field to be sure but as a corrective to the po-faced masses of downstrummers emerging with the post-punk revival Art Brut were a huge relief in 2004. Where Arogos’ voice lacks in anything approaching typical chops he more than compensates for it by being a fantastic writer.
