DOWNLOAD: Art Brut - "Lost Weekend" (MP3)

Eddie of Art Brut serenades Webster Hall (more by Brook Bobbins)
Art Brut

Dearest Internet

In glorious celebration of the imminent release of Art Brut's 'Brilliant! Tragic!', a rag tag group of comic book magicians have come together for an exclusive project. Each one of the shining ten album tracks has been given to ten artists to interpret as they see fit. The result? Comic book masterwork. Plus, no comic would be complete without a letters' page. Fancy submitting a question to me, your editor in chief, Barnaby Fudge? It can be a letter about anything Art Brut related. I will answer your every whim and desire. Get it in either through Chez Argos or direct to source at delightfullyfudge@gmail.com. You can find the complete list of artists here, including Bryan Lee O'Malley, Hope Larson, Jamie McKelvie and Jeffrey Lewis. Going to print soon, for all you geeks out there, this is a pretty exciting one.

Don't forget to get your letters into me. Forcible or otherwise.

Your editorialy

Barnaby Fudge

The comic book isn't out yet, but the source material, Art Brut 's new LP Brilliant! Tragic! was released back on May 24th, and the band will hit the road in support later this month. As discussed, one of their upcoming dates is June 23rd at Music Hall of Williamsburg (tickets are still on sale). They've also added Maxwell's on June 21. Tickets are on sale now for that too. Reptar opens both shows.

The Black Francis-produced LP is available now and can currently be purchased on Amazon in CD format for 25 cents less than the MP3 download. Check out the song "Lost Weekend" from the album downloadable above and in video form, along with updated dates (and some European Jeff Lewis dates too), below...

But an awesome trick nonetheless.

Unbrilliant.

Everyone in that crowd is wondering "In a year, am I going to regret being here, and regret thinking this whole art brut thing was cool?"

Fuck all BV haters. You're one tired trick is finding some reason to shit on every band and post on this site. It's a great fucking trick and a great fucking band. What Stateside act can compare to Art Brut?

I can't think of anything less relevant or interesting than the pigmentation of the fans of certain bands or music. Fuck you.

Ooooohhhhhhhh! 3:59, the "buy a life" insult has been used here before. Someone beat you to it.

4:41, just a bit of advice

responding to someone who is putting you down (deservedly so, you loser) is sort of like admitting you really ARE a loser

"4:41, just a bit of advice

Actually, I just butted in here. I wasn't involved initially. I just wanted to point out that the particular insult is taken. Also, I love how you're clearly bothered by all this. I'm amused! Holla!

Also, TRRY.P, I'm 22, how old are you?

I've said it before, but anyone who can't have fun at an Art Brut show is a humorless asshole.
