A Brit a Day [#372]
Here are 2 of my lads in a single post. A few years ago, Dan Radcliffe was the primary guest on a talk show--Letterman, I think--and Art Brut was the musical guest. I wouldn't be surprised if Dan had a hand in choosing the musical talent since I know him to be a fan. In fact, I first heard Art Brut--and experienced the epiphany of hearing Eddie Argos' voice for the first time--on an internet radio station dedicated to the cutting-edge tastes of Dan Radcliffe. AB were in NYC for a string of gigs at the time of the Letterman invitation, and I remember Eddie blogging about the band being holed-up in their hotel room speed watching all the Harry Potter movies so as to be polite.
