Following news of the Bull & Gate going up for sale, Art Brut are to take up a short two night residency at the Kentish Town venue to mark the tenth birthday of its flagship promoter, Club Fandango. The band will be joined on 8 Dec by party guests including Keith TOTP and his Minor UK Indie Celebrity Allstar Backing Band, while No Cars and The Brute Chorus will support on 7 Dec.

A portion of a statement issued by Art Brut's Barnaby Fudge reads thus: "It has come to my attention that some in the intersphere consider Art Brut to be less than politically minded. They are considered a party band, letting the events of the day wash over them like a drunk asleep in a gutter. Well, I am here to tell you that our merry band are not so oblivious! The voice of today's youth has not gone unheard!"

He goes on: "We refuse to sit idly by and watch Club Fandango celebrate a birthday without a residency-size truckload of Art Brut fans causing chaos, booze fuelled funstruction. The madness has gone on too long!" Hurrah!

Tickets (priced at £11 per night, or £18 for both) and full live listings for Club Fandango's tenth anniversary season can be found here: www.clubfandango.co.uk/news.php?id=551
