Art Brut Historians Needed

It’s been a long time. Nigh on 17 odd years, since Art Brut launched their rock journey proper at the now defunct Verge in Old Kentish Town, and we think it would be fair to say that through a fine old handful of albums, a veritable cavalcade of shows across the globe and no end of controversial, ridiculous, beautiful and magical moments… Eddie and co. have bought feelings. Emotions. SOMETHING to a load of people. Perhaps you?

So, deep in the lair of team Alcopop! X Art Brut (imagine some kind of dystopian Hooch stall meets Mojo Jojo’s monstrous hideout) something awesome is deep in the planning. Something that may well fill you full of joy next year. It may not, but we’re giving it a go anyway.

To put it simply, we need your help!

Cheerbleederz are BACK!

cheerbleederz are the best. That is just a fact. Which is why we're QUITE SO delighted that they're announcing their return with news of their second EP lobotany, which is set for a 7th February 2020 release on Alcopop! Records. Further details will be revealed over the coming months (look for them. Cast your eyes to the SKIES!). As a taster of the new material, the band have today released a new track ‘say 2 u’—the lead single from the new record, and the first to be written by the band since their 2018 debut EP faceplant. It's f**king GREAT!

We've signed Dream Nails - a hex on you if you don't check this out!

We're proud and delighted to have signed the awesome Dream Nails. Feminist witches from London hexing all in their path with an INCREDIBLE sound - all DIY meets punk meets surf pop with a little bit of thumping rock thrown in for good measure. First single Corporate Realness is out now, put out by us worldwide except the US where Tom Morello's (he of RATM fame) label are on board. It's truly awesome. Have a listen now and get involved. Launch show at OBL sold out in double quick time. This is a band to keep an eye on...

Lomana Lua Lua X Panini Cheapskates X United Glasgow FC = THE BEST CHARITY COMPILATION!

It’s 17th September 2006, and right on cue at The Valley, Tresor Lomana Lua Lua is springing into his legendary 360 flip, Scott Carson’s despairing glove not enough to parry an uncharacteristically tepid effort from rolling into the Charlton net. It’s an inglorious but well-appreciated win, and while it fires Portsmouth temporarily to the pinnacle of British football, elsewhere in deepest Dorset on the way to End of the Road Festival in a barely legal family saloon, two scruffy indie kids punch the air.

That goal, and more directly the borrowed money that they’ve bet on the outcome of the game, has just paid for the first ever Alcopop! Records release.

Eddie Argos meets Tony Slattery in the latest Art Brut video

They say don't meet your heroes, but no one told us not to mess with superheroes. For so long now the Brut's Eddie Argos has been thinking about how he resembles comedy legend Tony Slattery (ever notice that on his Twitter bio?) and joking that they should make a video together, so we're psyched that it's finally happened! 

The video for 'Your Enemies Are My Enemies Too' includes cameos from Helen Love, Michael Legge and Rhi Lee, and it's one hell of a comic adventure. You can read about the shoot and watch it over on The British Comedy Guide >>here<<
