Powered by Audioscrobbler™Eddie Argos (born Kevin Macklin 25 October 1979) is the lead singer of English rock band Art Brut, born in Weymouth, England. He later moved to Poole, Dorset as a young child, and has subsequently written about the Martin Kemp-Welch School there (now St Aldhelm's Academy), in the song Martin Kemp-Welch Five A Side Football Rules from the album Brilliant! Tragic!. He lives in Berlin.
Argos is infamous for his zany stage show, where he has played the vacuum, skipped with his microphone wire, escaped from a sack, danced with the audience and stopped songs halfway through to tell the audience his thoughts on various topics. Argos is also known for his humorous, frank lyrics which talk mostly about his family, how he has embarrassed himself or his past love interests.
According to an interview with Artrocker magazine and the lyrics of 'I Found This Song In The Road', he usually writes them (often on his phone) whilst going for a long walk and/or drunk.
Eddie sometimes plays the bass guitar in Keith TOTP (And His Minor UK Indie Celebrity Allstar Backing Band).
In March 2010 Argos complained that his Wikipedia entry was full of misinformation regarding his interests.
Argos is also the lead singer of the project Everybody Was in the French Resistance...Now!, in which he and multi-instrumentalist Dyan Valdes of The Blood Arm write musical responses to pop songs. Their album "Fixin' the Charts, Volume 1" was recorded in Joshua Tree in summer 2008.
