Once again, our velvet shoed, crown wearing pop stars need your help!
As you may well be aware, Art Brut’s 10 year, career spanning Best Of ‘Top of the Pops’ is now available for you to enjoy. However, as if a complete retrospective plus 20 tracks of b-sides and rarities was not enough, these selfless gentlemen and lady also generously recorded and included 2 brand new (amazing) songs as an extra incentive. This all sounds like a lot of hard work, doesn’t it? It’s not all tiaras and private jets, you know. And whilst they managed to syphon the last vestiges of their creative juices into the excellent video montage to accompany ‘We Make Pop Music’
we are left with a glaring hole. We need a video for new earthquake riddled track ‘Arizona Bay’!
Therefore, as it is the 10 year anniversary, we at Art Brut HQ thought it only apt to give you, the loyal fan mass, a chance to contribute to the video pot. We require a film and video prodigy to create something, anything that you think will not only successfully compliment the ear juggernaut of a track but will also win the band a VMA. Not too much to ask we think?
So, if you’re in, simply record the video, upload to youtube and post the link to the Art Brut Facebook wall. The band will then pick the best (VMA optional) and the winner will not only be the official video for the song but the proto-Gondry will also win an Eddie Argos original painting, plus signed CD and Top of the Pops tshirt. All opuses must be posted by 1st June. Any questions?
So, here’s the song (if you need the mp3, sling me an email at email@example.com. I’ll expect a video in return, mind!) -
Now get to work!!
