About Art Brut
Art Brut formed in England in 2003 with the sole (and completely honorable) intention of getting girls and making it to Top of the Pops. The band took its name from a wayward group of outsider artists and immediately began banging out its own form of strongly opinionated, punked-up Brit pop. Their debut single, "Formed a Band," informed everyone of their presence with lyrics like "Look at us/We've formed a band/We're going to be the band that makes Israel and Palestine get along." Led by the distinct Cockney snarl of Eddie Argos, the group corralled its simplistic art-punk urges in its full-length debut, 2005's Bang Bang Rock And Roll.
