"My Little Brother" as written by and Eddie Argos Mike Breyer....
My little Brother just discovered Rock & Roll [Repeat: x 3]
There's a noise in his head and he's out of control.
And yes it frustrates, lets let him make his own mistakes.
See him on the dance floor go now, boy those moves I just don't know how.

My little Brother just discovered Rock & Roll [Repeat: x 3]
He's only 22 and he's out of control.
How's he living? With all of that unforgiving.
See him on the dance floor go now, boy those moves I just don't know how.

My little Brother just discovered Rock and Roll [Repeat: x 3]
He's only 22 and he's out of control.
He no longer likes A-sides, he made me a tape of Bootlegs and b-sides.
And every song on that tape said, every single song said,

I want our parents to worry about us. All we ever wanted is for our parents to worry about us.
It's all anybody really wants.

My little Brother just discovered Rock & Roll x 3

My little Brother just discovered Rock & Roll
Stay off the Crack!

    General CommentI guess he and his brother don't have the same taste in music, maybe? It sounds to me as though the singer also feels that there's stuff wrong with his music as well...I don't really know, the meaning seems pretty blatant, as are most of Art Brut's songs.

    Song MeaningI think that it's a metaphor for his little brother being on drugs. Just discovering rock n'roll is slang for just getting into drugs. His brother is obviously an unhappy, troubled person ("how's he living / with all that unforgiving" and "why don't our parents worry about us") and Eddie is showing his sympathy and support for him. An educated guess, considering the improv parts I've seen Eddie perform during live versions of the song.
