"It has come to my attention that some in the intersphere consider Art Brut to be less than politically minded. They are considered a party band, letting the events of the day wash over them like a drunk asleep in a gutter. Well, I am here to tell you that our merry band are not so oblivious! The voice of today’s youth has not gone unheard!!
Therefore, in the spirit of occupation, Art Brut will be camping out in The Bull and gate, Kentish Town, on the 7th – 8th December
We refuse to sit idly by and watch Club Fandango celebrate a birthday without a residency-size truckload of Art Brut fans causing chaos, booze fuelled funstruction. The
madness has gone on too long!! We will be joined by our comrade in arms Keith TOTP and his Minor UK Indie Celebrity Allstar Backing Band (we’re hoping more friends will show up but they’re yet to reply to our riot inciting bbms…). We will not be moved!!
However, as we are not a bunch of rudderless hippies ‘the man’ is making us charge the Wind of Change a nominal occupation fee. But do not fear!! If you are truly committed to the cause and not some fly by night, latte drinking mummy’s boy then you can get the two night bundle for just £18… Viva la revolution!!!
Yours not doing what you tell me.
