Art Brut, ‘Bang Bang Rock and Roll’ (Downtown)

Wittier than any Brit this side of Ricky Gervais, frontman Eddie Argos testifies loudly, like a karaoke drunk with a head cold, but his stories always sing, and his frisky band of London pros never fail to fire up the precise boilerplate punk riff to roil the plot. This U.S. release of Art Brut’s 2005 debut album adds three intriguing, if sketchy, new tracks.
