A spoken word presentation by lead singer Eddie Argos of Art Brut about his experiences in the music industry and on how to form a band and become famous.
Pop music, as we all know, can be an uncertain business. Whilst a chosen few achieve their dreams of riches, world travel and mass adoration for many a spot at their local battle of the bands is the limit of their fame.
Enter Eddie Argos, world-renowned lead singer and songwriter with Art Brut, the London band that have spent the last decade redefining the meaning of stardom, and famous for songs such as ‘I Formed a Band’ and ‘My Little Brother’. Art Brut, tagged as part of the ‘Art Wave’ and post-punk revival in the UK, create jagged, ragged guitar riffs; and are now the rare kind of band that is classic yet eccentric, DIY and fun. For the first time Eddie is stepping into the limelight to tell stories that happened along the way while Art Brut became the world beating pop behemoth they are today.
