It’s been a good ten years since I mentioned Art Brut on this LiveJournal. Actually, its probably been ten years since I mentioned anything interesting on here either, but thats beside the point.
For the last few months the Brut have been pottering about America, touring and whatnot, with the hope that the Top Of The Pops bookers will think them to be American and therefore put them on the show.
They were planning on doing this for three hundred years.
As we all know, the BBC announced this week that they’d be axing TOTP this summer, putting rather a strict deadline on AB’s ambitions (in case you don’t know, Art Brut have a song that goes ‘Art Brut! Top Of The Pops! Art Brut! Top Of The Pops! – its a classic)
Rather than getting boob jobs, hair extensions and hot pants, Art Brut have decided that the best way to get on the show before it finishes is to start a petition.
