Art Brut  meets ChartBlog

See this? The fella on the left is Eddie Argos, the lead singer of the very wonderful Art Brut. The fella on the right is me. And the reason we are so deep in conversation is that we're discussing something which is very dear to both of us...Top of the Pops.

We were debating how to make the show perfect, should anyone want to 'do a Dr Who' with it. Now, eagle-eyed ChartBloggers will remember that the Brut and the Pops have a bit of history. So, if anyone can sort out a new Top of the Pops, it'll be me and Eddie, in an arts centre in Exeter (with a little bit of help from ChartBlog's own Emily Wood on lead giggle).

And the reason I'm putting this up today is that Art Brut have just announced that they have parted company with their record label EMI, so it's a good day to remind anyone who will listen of the band's mightiness. They will rise again!

Have a listen...

Or download the mp3 version of this interview*...


*joyclaps* OMG Eddie Argos has an email from me on his WALL!!!

Here's the video for Art Brut's 'Pump Up The Volume', which Eddie believes should be the new TOTP theme tune.
