HE GIVES HER LICKS!!!
Imagine you’ve just bought a house when heavily armed police officers show up at your door, announce that you have ten minutes to gather some possessions and leave, and then sell your house and keep the money.
Under civil asset forfeiture laws, police can take people’s money and property without making an arrest. They just have to suspect the assets are tied in some way to illicit activity. Since much of the money police seize ends up paying their own salaries and bankrolling their departments, they have a strong incentive to abuse these laws.
Some states are working to stop this type of abuse. But even when state laws are strict, police often take people’s money and property under federal law and keep on pocketing forfeiture money. Because of a loophole called “equitable sharing,” state cops can seize property under federal law and keep up to 80% of the proceeds.
This loophole isn’t right. When states decide to stop policing for profit, state cops should have to obey their laws.
This book contains all of the lyrics from the last ten years of Art Brut. Plus - footnotes, illustrations and essays. With a foreword from the poet Luke Wright.Any Questions?
As well as being the subject of a lecture at Berlin’s Humboldt University (entitled The Depressive Dandy), the Art Brut lyrics of Eddie Argos have received plenty of accolades;
'Full of the bathetic genius that English pop used to excel in' - The Guardian
'Lines that Larkin might not have sniffed at' - Word Magazine
'Truly thrilling post-Britpop art-punk monologues' - Drowned In Sound
'One of his generations great poets of the mundane' - Spin Magazine
While his singing voice has been described as;
'Torturous and tiresome' - Q Magazine
So, in an attempt to appeal to a new audience (of people that might like his lyrics but do not like to be shouted at) Eddie Argos has compiled all of his Art Brut lyrics into a handy paperback book.
Apparently I signed up for Art Brut’s mailing list a few years ago.
Did you trade your contact info for the postcard he signed? You made a deal with the devil, and his name is Eddie Argos.
