Single Review: Art Brut – Alcoholics Unanimous (Cooking Vinyl)

By | Published on Monday 6 April 2009

Art Brut

‘Alcoholics Unanimous’ precedes Art Brut’s third studio album which will be available for your listening pleasure in the UK on 20 Apr. Judging from this teaser, the highly anticipated Frank Black assisted LP, entitled ‘Art Brut Vs Satan’, will see the band continue on from ‘It’s A Bit Complicated’ in the style that we have become accustomed to – loud, brash and as stylish as hell. Akin to indie disco floor fillers like ‘Direct Hit’, this track employs call and answer tactics from the rest of the London/Bournemouth quintet that bounce off Eddie Argos’ spoken narrative. Thematically, the band stick to what they do best – lyrical commentary on the trials and tribulations of modern life, like raging hangovers, comfort eating and such. Previously written off as little more than a tribute band to Mark E. Smith and co, ‘Art Brut vs Satan’ should be a slap in the faces for all those naysayers. MB
