Eddie Argos, the often moustached, dry-witted, non-singing frontman of Art Brut, has new stories to tell on his solo project, Everybody Was In The French Resistance, also featuring Los Angeles-based Dyan Valdés from The Blood Arm. On the pair’s upcoming release, Fixin’ the Charts Volume One, they lay it down and dish the dirt on everyone from Avril Lavigne to U2, Michael Jackson and Kanye West. This collection of twelve golden responses to said artists and their top of the charts’ songs will be released February 16th on the Cooking Vinyl label.

Everybody Was In The French Resistance’s debut album promises to “correct the mistakes of pop songs past. So far they have defended the belittled blue-collar worker from Kanye West’s “Gold Digger,” told Gerry and the Pacemakers that in fact it is okay to walk alone, dumped the manipulative Martha Reeves on behalf of poor Jimmy Mack and have taken the misguided instructions of a 17th century ballad to its logical conclusion.”
