Hey, who’s in charge around here?

The charismatic Eddie Argos and his emphatically loony art-punk troupe Art Brut, that’s who!

I mean, if THEY say that the release of a new video for the track “Your Enemies Are My Enemies Too” — off their most recent release Wham! Bang! Pow! Let’s Rock Out! , which came out last fall on Argopop! — warrants its own independent news coverage; who the hell are YOU AND I to argue?

If it makes any difference, the video (directed by long-time Alcopop! collaborator Ben Pollard) depicts “Argos and comedy legend Tony Slattery as an estranged pair of retired comicbook foes who bond over their shared enmity for fellow-comedian Michael Legge’s squeaky clean Captain Fantastic character, with relentless pop sensation Helen Love providing the rousing radio voiceover that kicks off the video.”

Still not convinced?

Well, what if I told you that, regarding his appearance in the video, ol’ Tony Slattery reportedly said: “I had one of the most enjoyable days ever filming this video. As for that Eddie Argos claiming he looks a little like me years ago when I was something of a somebody, well that’s very flattering. He’s far too gorgeous! Such fun!”

Or that, regaring working with Slattery, Argos himself reportedly said: “He was amazing, hilarious and entertaining all day, and just so absolutely jaw droppingly brilliant that this deserves to be not only an Art Brut video, but also a 10 part Netflix series starring him as a retired superhero.”

STILL no???

How about if they sweeten the deal by promising to go on a quick tour of the UK next march with The Subways???

*Crickets*

…Huh.

Yeah, you’re not buying any of this are you?
