“If it's not guitar music then I've got no use for it”
Eddie has never been off form, but with this track from his new project Eddie Argos & The Lo Fi Punk Rock Motherfuckers he's released the boldest statement of intent since 'Formed A Band'. Although this is far from serious, it's not a tongue in cheek moment either. As many of our favourite publications have veered from the path to feature increasing amounts of wafty rubbish Eddie literally calls out for a new way.
Although it's not really a new way at all, is it. 'Death To Everything (That Is Not Guitar Music)' tells us to “Turn it up loud”, a sentiment that KPL has been espousing right from its very inception*, and seeks the classic DIY approach. Despite dalliances with a major label, this has always been a key element of Art Brut's appeal, and the Lo Fi Punk Rock Motherfuckers are the closest that Eddie's projects have been in sound to his most successful venture. From the name and the title you should know what to expect, so do as he says.
Volume1. (Wam! Bang! Pow!) is available to download from Corporate Records because CDs are dead**. More videos and info can be seen at The Eddie Argos Resource.
