Eddie Argos from Art Brut took time out of filming the video for their new single, Good Weekend, to chat to Ryan Morrison about coming to Jersey.
|"I don't know what genre we belong"|
|Eddie, Art Brut|
Eddie talks to us about being obsessed with Jonathan Richmond, liking Kaiser Chiefs, the Rakes lyrics and pop music generally.
He tells us that the stories behind his songs are all true, that Emily Kane really was his ex-girlfriend and that Bad Weekend was about him being grumpy - about everything.
He talks about coming to Jersey and having his photo taken by Bergerac's car and his granddad having a walking stick made out of cabbages - also from Jersey.
Eddie tells us about playing Route du Rock and catching a sock in the middle of a song, then signing it and giving it back.
Then Ryan and Eddie talk about how the songs on the album Bang Bang Rock and Roll are almost like a book but without paragraphs.
