Art Brut

WHAM! BANG! POW! LET’S ROCK OUT!

ALCOPOP! RECORDS

Eddie Argos has taken a break from painting album covers to release the fifth Art Brut album (a mere seven years after the last one). Wham! Bang! Pow! Let’s Rock Out! is a charming meander through the glorious minds of Argos and co. Look out for the many musical references peppered throughout – from Blood On The Tracks to Ticket To Ride. During album highlight and new single Hospital! Argos muses: “They tried to make me go to rehab and I said/ That’s probably a very good idea,” penned when he was hospitalised with a near-fatal bout of peritonitis. Despite some serious subject matter – death and a breakup – here we have an upbeat (thank you guitar riffs and brass instruments) and triumphant record which wears its 90s influences on its sleeve. None more so than in Good Morning Berlin, where a Blur-esque sound and an unmistakable Englishness shine through in Argos’s ode to his adopted city.

About Long Live Vinyl

The Beatles or The Rolling Stones? Issue 21 of Long Live Vinyl celebrates the moment 50 years ago when the two biggest bands on earth went head to head on record-shop shelves. Our cover story tells the inside story of the making of The White Album and Beggars Banquet, while taking a look inside the new Deluxe Editions of both albums – you’ve never heard The White Album like this before! And our special collector’s edition covers enable you to choose either a Beatles or Stones edition – or buy both! Elsewhere this issue, we meet two of the most outspoken characters in the current musical landscape – Richard Ashcroft and Baxter Dury – to hear about their extraordinary new albums, and Heavenly Records founder Jeff Barrett talks us through his remarkable life in music, selecting the records that have soundtracked his career. Tim Burgess sits down for a chat about his O Genesis record label, The Trip visits Liverpool, our Classic Album is A Tribe Called Quest’s 1993 hip-hop masterpiece Midnight Marauders and we round up 40 Essential Laurel Canyon records that should be residing in your collection. If all that’s not enough, we bring you the most extensive range of new album, reissue and hardware reviews anywhere on the newsstand.
