Hey! Motherfuckers! A HARDBACK lyric and essay book.

Hello, I recently crowd funded a book called 'Any Questions?' the book is an annotated collection of all the lyrics I've written for Art Brut, plus an essay on each album, (and an essay about the B-sides) plus a few illustrations drawn on to the original pieces of paper I wrote the lyrics on. HERE is what I wrote about the book when I launched it.

It went really well, THANK YOU. It went so well, in fact, that I have upgraded the book from Paperback to a very nice matte HARDCOVER book, the sort of book that a motherfucking academic, like myself, deserves. The cover has changed slightly too, it now looks like this.

Everybody that has already bought a book, your version will now be a hardcover. All the first edition copies of the book will now be a hardcover, limited to 500 copies signed and numbered.

Because of the personal nature of Art Brut lyrics, as a band we tend to attract a lot of people who are very similar to me, one of my defining characteristics is that I am very disorganised. This explains why I've had quite a few emails from people who missed the opportunity to buy the book while I was crowd funding it - well this and the fact I was crowd funding over the Christmas period when everybody is busy.

For those disorganised people, and also for the people who are more interested now its a hardback book, I've extended the offer I used over the crowd funding for a few more weeks.

Here are the two versions of the book you can buy.

A signed, numbered, hardback edition of 'Any Questions?' £20

A signed, numbered, hardback edition of 'Any Questions' with a painting on  (12.7cm x 17.7cm) canvas board of the motherfucking publishing logo, and your choice of Art Brut song hand written into the back of the book. £40

The book will ship out at the end of January, postage is included in the price to anywhere in the world. I will email all the people who bought a book wanting a song written into it next week - to find out which song it is they want. I may be using this information to compile the most crowd friendly set list for Art Brut ever. So far there have been a lot of request for Demon's Out you bunch of misanthropes.
