Make no mistake; there's a lot of fun to be had here!
'Brilliant! Tragic!' is Art Brut's fourth album and I
have to be honest that it is the first time I've heard them.

It's wonderfully wonky music; punky in a lighthearted but
full-bodied way. Frontman Eddie Argos slithers and snarls
his way through these ten tracks like a good 'un! I laughed
out loud several times at the lyrics; some of them are very
funny indeed. 'Lost Weekend' is a particularly good example;
it's got some classy head-over-heels guitar playing on it
and a bunch of edgy riffs so full of unaffected energy that
Mrs Wolf and I got quite carried away creating a synchronised
dance routine to it (we may be getting on but our joints are
still in good working order!) With lines like : 'I'm sorry if
I embarrassed you, by saying something stupid like "I love you"'
I need no further evidence to be fully convinced of its worth.

'Sexy Sometimes' bumps and grinds like a beast. Drummer Mikey
Breyer lays down a stonking backbeat over which Mr Argos hisses
and whispers with good grace and self-effacing charm about the
limitations of his own vocal ability. As if he (or we) really give
a damn! I'm perfectly at home with imperfection when it's this good!

'Martin Kemp Welch Five A-Side Football Rules' lasts little more than
two minutes but whips up a veritable storm of good electricity!

Ian Catskilkin really is a fine guitarist. The kind of chords he lays
down on 'I Am The Psychic' would strip the bark off a whole avenue
of plane trees! Listen too to the boa constrictor lines winding in
and out of 'Ice Hockey' to appreciate the full measure of his skills.

Art Brut at their recorded best. The band are so tight and Eddie's lyrics continue to make you smile. Great stuff Art Brut!
