About this tab version
Tab for all the song, for either a one guitar or two. It is not based on the live version. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Pump up the volume - Art Brut

I couldn't find any tabs that did this song justice, so here I am. Although they use two guitarists when
playing, I have tabbed it as just one (with the exception of the miny riff in the verses). I think it sounds 
just as good, and is a lot more satisfying to play it this way! 

Please leave your suggestions below, I was uneasy about the solo but hopefully it's fine.


[Intro]
                                        D     E
e|--------------------------------------5-----7--|
B|--------------------------------------7-----9--|
G|--------------------------------------7-----9--|
D|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-4h5h7-7-7-7-7-7-7-4h5--7-----9--|
A|--------------------------------------5-----7--|
E|-----------------------------------------------|


[Chorus/Main Riff]

e|---6-4-------------------------5-4---------------------|
B|-------5----5-7---5~---------------7----5-7---5~-------|
G|-6-------6~-----6----6-2-4~--4-------6~-----6----6-2-3-|

[Verse]
   A                C#               E                D
e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------6-6-6-6-9-9-9-9-------------------7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-|  
A|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--4-4-4-4-7-7-7-7--4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|
E|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-------------------2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2------------------|(x2)

At points in the verse such as during the A and the F# chords there is a mini riff. If you are 
playing this tab with only one guitar it is best to leave it out, but just in case here it is

e|--------|
B|---10---|
G|------9-|
D|-7------|
A|--------|
E|--------|

Finally, end with the chords D and E just as the intro did.

[Mini Solo]

[Verse]

We'd taken our clothes off, in the wrong order
And you're leavin' your shoes to make you look taller
And I can't say I'm not enjoying the kissing
But I've a sneaking suspicion that you're not really listening

[Chorus/Main Riff]
I know I shouldn't
Is it so wrong
To break from your kiss
To turn up a pop song

I know I shouldn't
And it's possibly wrong
To break from your kiss
To turn up a pop song

[Verse]
I'm taking it slowly
I've been reading the signs
I found my hand in a place
Where I can't tell if she minds
Rolling around amongst our clothes on the floor
I can't help it:
"Have you heard this song before?"

[Chorus]
I know I shouldn't
Is it so wrong
To break from your kiss
To turn up a pop song

I know I shouldn't
And it's possibly wrong
To break from your kiss
To turn up a pop song

[Verse]
Then something angry muttered,
Between two people, red and flustered
We'd just kissed and that's about it
It may as well have been radio static

[Mini Solo]

[Chorus]
I know I shouldn't
Is it so wrong
To break from your kiss
To turn up a pop song

I know I shouldn't
And it's possibly wrong
To break from your kiss
To turn up a pop song

[Outro]

This consists of two guitars. One will be playing this riff

e|---0-2-5-9-5-2-0---0-2-5-9-5-2-0---0-2-5-9-5-2-0-5~-|
B|-2---------------2---------------2------------------|
G|----------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------|

The second will be playing the these triplets, again if you are playing this song as a solo guitarist I would 
advise playing this part to finish the song rather than the mini riff.


e|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--5~-|
B|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--5~-|
G|-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6--6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6--6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6--6~-|
D|-------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------|
